It may look like a cheap gizmo but don't let the first impression fool you. The ZOMM can be the life-saver for you and your cell phone.

ZOMM is the first wireless leash alarm and speakerphone for mobile phones. It connects to your mobile phone set through Bluetooth and alerts you when you leave the phone behind.

Apart from being a Wireless Leash, ZOMM acts as a Bluetooth speakerphone and a personal safety device too.

Wireless Leash
ZOMM looks like just a large button and can be attached to a keychain. It connects to your phone via Bluetooth technology.

When you move away from your mobile phone, ZOMM emits a sound, vibrates or flashes lights to remind you that you have left the phone behind.

The alarm beeps when the ZOMM is 30 feet away from the mobile phone set. Press the ‘Z’ button on the side of the ZOMM to stop the alarm.

Bluetooth Speakerphone
ZOMM works as a very powerful wireless speakerphone. The sound quality is quite impressive as it has built-in noise-canceling technology.

Press the gigantic ‘Z’ button when you have a call and ZOMM will be converted to a speakerphone. Press the button twice and the call will go to voicemail. So there is no chance of missing an important call.

There is no volume control button but future versions are likely to have one.

ZOMM: Personal Safety Device
Imagine yourself in a dangerous situation; you are in trouble and need to call the emergency number but you are not even in a position to speak. ZOMM is there for you.

Press and hold the ‘Z’ button for 9 seconds and ZOMM will emit a high pitch panic alarm. Hold the button when the alarm rings, ZOMM will dial the emergency number.

And if you cannot speak to the operator, it will play a pre-recorded message so that help can reach you soon. Available for $80, the device is definitely affordable and worth the purchase.
