What is SmartWallit?
SmartWallit is a revolutionary device that allows you to keep track of your wallet. It will prevent you from leaving your wallet behind, so you will not have to awkwardly stand at the register frantically searching for your wallet. It is able to do this by connecting with your phone through Bluetooth 4.0. In addition, SmartWallit comes with a free App for your phone, which records the time and place when you lost it.
When you use your wallet, App will record when and where you use it. It is very useful for you to check whether you use credit card or not. If you receive credit card bill, you may often ask yourself " Did i use the credit card in New York at 3pm on 3th, January" So you can check that by the App's records.
If you misplace your wallet, you can make SmartWallit ring by using the App to figure out the location of your wallet.
There are so many differences between SmartWallit and SmartWallit Pro.
What is SmartWallit Pro？
SmartWallit Pro is a new generation of SmartWallit with many new features: thinner and easily inserted into your wallet, more stable connection activity and more friendly App designs, cloud synchronization supported, colorful design, no disturb mode, funny warning sound, distance view, reminder of dealing with records, Lost location view, etc.
How does it work?
SmartWallit Pro connects with your phone through Bluetooth 4.0. All you have to do is open the SmartWallit Pro application and you will be all set. No need to dig around endlessly looking for the word Bluetooth in the Settings. Here are a few examples of how we think SmartWallit Pro will revolutionize your life.
Scenario 1: 2-way anti-lost reminder
If you leave your wallet behind, your phone will let you know. If you leave your phone behind, your wallet will let you know. Your wallet and your phone will now be responsible for each other. If you spent the whole weekend staying at home or at office, you can disable anti-lost function by App’s No Disturb Mode.
Scenario 2: Uh, where did it go?
If you misplaced your wallet, you can use the App to make your wallet ring. With a loud buzzer sound at a volume of over 85dB, you will have no trouble hearing it, even as far as 10 meters away. To allow for a more accurate hunt, the App will also show you the distance between your phone and your wallet.
Scenario 3: When and where did you use your wallet?
When you use your wallet, SmartWallit Pro App will record this action using its proximity and light sensor to push a signal to your phone. With that information, your phone will be able to record when and where you last used your wallet.
This function introduces a brand new way to manage your finances. For example, if you make a payment, the SmartWallit Pro will ask if you would like to input payment details. Compared with other financial applications, our App gives you a frequent reminder to input those payment details. This allows you to build an accurate and complete record of the frequency and amount you spend. When reviewing your monthly spendings, the App will then be able to show you what you have bought over the last week/month/year.
