Walli “smart” Wallet – Technology is the future
The Walli Wallet is a highly successful crowd funded minimalist wallet that raising close to $500,000. With this incredible amount raised, I couldn’t help but write this short overview of what the wallet offers before I can fully get my hands on this unusual wallet.
In a nutshell, the Walli is one of the first “smart” wallets on the market, and definitely the first one I’ve come across. The unique feature of the Walli is its ability to keep track of the whereabouts of your wallet. Thousands of people daily loose their wallets and Walli’s ethos is to help prevent you from losing the most important item you carry around without. The wallet works by connecting to your phone and sending you a notification wherever or whenever you leave it behind! Walli will also notify you if you leave a card behind and even your phone. Here are some of the features of the wallet from their very own Indiegogo page!
How does it work?
Walli connects to your smartphone over Bluetooth to send you instant notifications. Once you connect Walli to your phone, the Walli App – available on Android and iOS will continuously monitor your wallet activity!
Forgot Your Wallet – The Walli App sends out a notification on your phone once you get too far from it.
SecurePockets – Walli also monitors the pocket you use the most. With our patent pending technology, Walli pockets are smart and send the signal to your phone when your credit card/ID is missing for too long. You can set a timer (through the app), after which the app will notify you about the missing card pocket. This is very useful and makes sure you don’t forget your cards/ID/passport at a restaurant/bar or during travel.
Find Walli – Press a button on the app and if the wallet is nearby will start to ring.
Find Your Phone – If you can’t find your phone and if your phone is within range (<100ft), then a simple double tap on your wallet will set an alarm on your phone even if it’s on silent mode.
Last Known Location– The App remembers the last known location of the wallet in case you miss the notification. You can track it down and navigate back to the place where you lost it.
Battery Technology – Walli does not require charging. A single coin cell battery (CR2032) can last up to 6 months and can be easily replaced. Simply remove the zipper and replace the battery from the hidden piece of hardware. It just takes a minute !
The Wallet – Walli is made of genuine leather and is dust-proof and water splash proof. It has 6 slots for credit card/ID and 2 cash pocket. If you need additional pockets or coin pocket, please take a look at our Walli Card Holder (3 extra slots and 1 transparent ID slot) or Walli Coin Card Holder (2 extra card shot and 1 coin pocket and 1 transparent ID slot). These card holders fit nicely into the wallet giving you additional slots.
