LightBug can trigger custom actions or reminders based on location, movement or proximity
GPS & GLONASS are groups of satellites. LightBug uses both constellations to determine its location anywhere in the world. No need for phones, Bluetooth or WiFi networks to be nearby. The LightBug has a high quality GPS patch antenna. This means locking in is faster and you can run under some trees without getting the dreaded "GPS signal lost" notification.
Because GPS trackers don't use your average stride length, they are much more accurate than accelerometer based fitness trackers.
If you do have Bluetooth though, you can know whether you are getting hotter or colder when you're looking for it. LightBug can also use the Bluetooth signal strength to trigger an alert mode when it gets too far away from you Please note Bluetooth is an optional extra
LightBug connects to any available mobile phone network to send locations and receive instructions. That means you will always be able to find your LightBug. Well.. unless you happened to leave your handbag in the middle of the Antarctic.
You don’t need to worry about a SIM card and it works globally at no extra cost.
The solar panels on the side of the device keep the internal battery topped up so you can forget about it until you need to know where your LightBug is.
Planning to use the real-time or sport tracking features? Unless you’re lucky enough to live in the tropics, chances are your LightBug will need the occasional top up. If you do run out of juice, the LightBug can be fully charged from any USB port in just 30 minutes.
Vampire Friendly, the MicroUSB port may also be useful for nocturnal users
Change the settings, request location updates, check the battery, set up restricted zones on a map and view historical data for all your LightBugs.
Your phone is always with you, wherever you go, right? Well the app lets you use your smartphone as a tracker.
You could get a LightBug to track your stuff, but then use your phone to track yourself. This will allow you to set up super clever alerts without needing to buy two LightBugs.
Has the dog run into the neighbour’s garden again? Is a friend nearby? Maybe you’ve just walked past the post office and need a reminder to buy stamps.
Configure your own custom alerts based on where you are and/or the location of your LightBugs.
