We have heard of the device before when it debuted at CES earlier this year. The ZOMM device fits on a keychain and connects to your phone via Bluetooth. When the ZOMM device detects the phone is a certain distance away from the user it sounds an alert to get the user to see where the phone is.

ZOMM also has a panic feature that can call for help from anywhere in the world. Basically, it’s a proximity detector that helps prevent you from walking away without your phone and alerts you if someone is walking away with your phone.
