Cross launches the world’s first trackable pen
Lost pens and misplaced mobile phones might just be a thing of the past, after a revolutionary new product was revealed by Cross Pens.
The Cross Peerless Trackr works when paired with an app that uses Bluetooth and Crowd Locate technology to keep people in touch with their writing tools while on the move.
If the pen falls from the pocket or is left in a meeting, the device can alert the owner to its last known location using the Trackr app.
When the pen’s Bluetooth connection is disconnected from its paired mobile phone, Trackr’s Crowd Locate community will automatically start searching for the pen. If one of the millions of Trackr app users walks by a missing pen while running the app, the owner receives a confidential update with the pen’s last known location.
The pen can even help people find their misplaced mobile phones. Following a simple button press on the cap, the pen can alert people to their device’s whereabouts, even when left in silent mode.
Available in both carbon black and quartz blue, the Peerless Trackr is powered by two replaceable CR1220 batteries.
Nicola Shepherd, marketing director, EMEA at AT Cross, said: “Pens often assume sentimental value and are highly valued. Not only this, but they are a highly personal and important style accessory. With this in mind, we think that the Peerless Trackr will be one of our most successful products, as it clearly addresses a consumer need and will resonate with a great number of people.”
Cross has also unveiled an accompanying pen pouch that features a Trackr bravo device, to hold valuables and stationery essentials.
