Seekit buzzes and glows reminding users in case they forget their phones. The design comes enabled with IP-65 for protection from rains.
Seekit battery and connectivity
Panasonic claims that Seekit provides connectivity range up to 100 ft. It says that that Bluetooth(R) 5 allows communication with a lower battery consumption, thus elongating the battery life. Seekit comes with a coin cell battery that eliminates the hassle of daily charging as per the company.
Mr. Manish Misra, Chief Innovation Officer, Panasonic India said, “India Innovation Centre is aligned to Panasonic’s objective i.e., to develop transformative business solutions in the space of Internet of Things (IoT) that further aids in better living.
