Losing your favorite technology device can be frustrating, especially when there isn’t a tracker that comes with it.
On an iOS device, we have something called Find My iPhone that allows users to find stolen or lost iPhone using their iCloud account and service. Not sure why Apple didn’t include such feature for the Apple Watch.
It sucks to owe a device that is hard to find once it’s stolen or lost somewhere in this world. Instead of waiting for Apple, we have found an alternative to “Find My iPhone” for your Apple Watch.
Get Notified When Apple Watch Is out of Range
There is a new app in the App Store called Lookout that alerts users immediately if they’re about to be out of reach with their Apple Watch.
It also can protect your device from unexpected data losses, against theft as you would be able to use the tracking feature, and it fights against all attacks that may try to cripple the device.
Finding Misplaced Apple Watch is Easier
Let’s not talk about thieves, let’s blame it on you, the owner in this case. If you have accidentally put your Apple Watch somewhere in the house and can’t seem to find it, Lookout can help.
With one tap you can make the Apple Watch scream an alarm even when it’s on silent. When running low on battery, the Lookout app will save the last active location.
No Data Loss
Another unique feature of this app is that it enables you to save your photos, documents, videos and songs online, and that’s a must-have functionality.
In additional, Lookout lets you save multiple devices in its database and give you access to any of them whenever you wish.
The security updates are done automatically, and that means you won’t have to go through the process of tapping or waiting. The company ensures that your device is always up-to-date with the latest security features.
Lookout is now available on the App Store for free. You can download it for your Apple Watch.
There is in-app purchase option like automatic photo backup and theft alerts for an extra $2.99 per month, but if you do not want regular billings, the company has a yearly billing of $29.99.
