Tech Tuesday | Xupo Bluetooth Tracker.*


*This product was sent to me for free, all opinions are my own for more info please check out my contact & disclaimer.
We are lucky to live in a time where technology can be an aid to help us find things that are either lost or stolen, keys are one of such things that people lose constantly and considering how needed they are I'm not surprised that so many cool little devices have been made in order to help people find them. The *Xupo is one of these gadgets which I was lucky enough to be sent out to review, it can help to find more than just your keys and is only small so looks like a typical size charm, I've used this little device in my bag and on my keys and I'm really pleased with how well it works and would be happy to recommend it to friends and family.

How does it work?

The Xupo uses Bluetooth in order to work with the mobile phone to help you find where it is, in order to get it to work you will first have to create an account with Xupo and log in on the app with it, then make sure your Bluetooth for your phone is turned on and press the little button on the Xupo device to get them to pair, the app will allow you to call the device to make sure it works once they are paired, this took all of a second to happen there wasn't a delay and it rang pretty loudly. Considering I am going deaf in my left ear I could hear it pretty well. The Xupo will map where you last lost it and records a GPS time stamp of when you lost it. The Xupo is one of the easiest devices I have used, to be honest, I thought it would take a while to find it and wouldn't be loud enough to hear but it's a pretty decent device and reasonably priced too. You can press the little button to call your phone with the Xupo or use the app to call the device so you can help phone your phone if you have your Xupo on hand too, I even named my Xupo beep beep on my app which you will be able too once you have it set up.




The Xupo has 3 different lights which are much like traffic lights:

  • Green - Connected
  • Red - Disconnected
  • Orange - Ready to pair

When it's not in use the light does go off which will help when it comes to battery life, talking of batteries you will be able to change them in the Xupo as it opens up for you to slide a new one inside, your app lets you know how much battery life is left so you never have to worry about when it will die on you and worry that you won't be able to track it down because the battery has died. In order to find out how to open the Xupo and what battery it takes, just pop on to the website and check out the FAQs section. For people who want to order these in a large quantity or have your own logo on them, just contact Xupo and they will be happy to help you.


The Xupo is compatible with both Android and iPhone's so you will be able to find the app easily on both the apple and play store, It's easy enough to find if you just search for Xupo it should be one of the only apps with that name. I don't know if any of you remember as it was a few years ago now but the Xupo was on Dragons Den which is why I recognised it. This little device is priced at £20 which is very reasonable for something that will help keep track of your important items, for my readers I have a 25% off code for you to use when you check out HERE just use the code: XMASX25X. 



Personally, I think this device will be a little life changer for many people, I have seen trackers for a lot more money than this and a bigger size that look too bulky. The fact that it's about the size of a two pence coin and can do so much for its size leaves me impressed. It will help those who lose their keys that don't want to pay out for a locksmith to change the locks, which I know a lot of people would appreciate. The one feature I like most is that it tells you how much battery you have remaining, I have seen trackers that you aren't able to use once the battery runs out so the Xupo is a device which you can use over and over again with the change of a battery.
