Ekster Trackable Smart Wallet Is Powered by TrackR

The TrackR technology keeps you from misplacing this new wallet.

TrackR, the creator of intelligent tracking devices and software applications, announces a partnership with Ekster to create the smallest, smartest trackable and secure RFID-blocking wallets. 


The new Ekster smart wallets integrate TrackR technology into the ultra-slim, leather design for effortless tracking. The Ekster wallet pairs with the TrackR app to allow for two-way ringing, custom separation alerts via Bluetooth. TrackR leverages other TrackR devices to recover wallets lost or misplaced outside of Bluetooth range.

These new Ekster wallets also offer the fast card-access mechanism and RFID blocking technology to prevent wireless theft.

“When a wallet is as small as the Ekster smart wallets, it makes it easier to misplace. That is why we chose to embed TrackR’s market leading technology into our wallets,” says Ekster co-founder Oliver Momma.

Ekster is the latest company to build TrackR technology into an everyday item, allowing the TrackR platform and services to become more accessible to consumers, with or without TrackR hardware.

“The Works with TrackR platform is a big step towards no longer having to attempt to remember where items are, but having computers remember where every item is located for us,” says TrackR CEO, Chris Herbert.

Ekster smart wallets are now available for on Indiegogo. Pricing starts at $99 for the Senate model and $109 for the Parliament model in either coffee brown, napa, black, steel blue or cognac leather. The first wallets are slated to ship in June 2016. Current orders ship July. The Ekster smart wallet has raised $600,000 in the initial crowd-funding campaign.

TrackR is a Santa Barbara, CA-based company founded in 2009 by Chris Herbert and Christian Johan Smith, whose mission is to completely automate the process of personal organization and item management.
