ZOMM's Wireless Leash plus is a hockey puck you clip onto your keychain and forget about -- until things start to go wrong. Tethering to your iPhone over Bluetooth, it'll start raising hell if your phone gets too far away from you. It's also a speakerphone (with a noise-canceling microphone) for taking calls on the road, a personal attack alarm, and it'll call the emergency services at the push of a button. Paired to the free myZOMM app, you can geotag your car so you remember where it is in the multi-story lot or check out the last known location of your most precious stuff. It's shipping now for $80 and a further $30 will get you a safe driving kit, not that we need to remind you that driving with a phone in your hand is a bad thing, right?

ZOMM Announces Wireless Leash Plus and myZOMM iPhone App
TULSA, Okla. (Dec. 6, 2011) – ZOMM (www.zomm.com) introduces the Wireless Leash Plus, a new optimized version for the iPhone. The ZOMM Wireless Leash Plus uses Bluetooth® technology to prevent users from losing or misplacing their mobile phone by vibrating, flashing lights and sounding an alarm when users separate too far from their phone. The Wireless Leash Plus connects seamlessly with the new myZOMM iPhone App that features geo-tagging.
"We created a sophisticated product for Bluetooth-enabled smartphones that solves common problems," said Henry Penix, CEO of ZOMM. "The Wireless Leash Plus is the ultimate iPhone accessory for any mobile lifestyle."
The Wireless Leash Plus notifies users when they have separated a certain distance from their mobile phone by flashing, vibrating and sounding an alarm. This reminder helps them to never accidentally leave their phone behind whether at a restaurant, bar, movie theater or when leaving home in the morning. The Wireless Leash Plus also features a fully functioning speakerphone and noise-cancelling microphone to talk hands free, safely, even while driving.
A panic button feature allows users to sound an alarm with one button press to deter potential attackers and notify others of distress. By continuing to hold the panic button, the Wireless Leash Plus will also dial local emergency assistance from anywhere in the world without having to touch the phone. The user may customize any emergency number for their Wireless Leash Plus to dial.
The Wireless Leash Plus is easily paired with the new myZOMM iPhone App to easily set up and manage all of the Wireless Leash Plus features from the user's phone. The myZOMM iPhone App provides a mobile platform to set up and adjust device preferences, such as naming the Wireless Leash Plus, muting the device, customizing the distance in which the out of range alert sounds, customizing sound levels and customizing the emergency contact number. The App also includes an alert feature to find the Wireless Leash Plus and whatever it's physically connected to, such as a keychain.
