HTC Fetch: What can’t you do with this device?

The HTC Fetch is one of those nifty little devices that can be put to any use. When I was reading about what it can do, I thought that it was an April Fools post. But we are near the tail end of October, so that’s out of the question.

The Fetch is a key fob-sized device, measuring approximately 2.9cm x 2.9cm and less than 1cm thick.

It works only with the HTC One mini, Butterfly s, and One max smartphones, and has a working range of 15m (slightly more than 49 feet), with a battery that will last 6 month before needing to be recharged. The official description of how the device works goes like this:

With the simple press of a button, the sleek keychain accessory activates your phone’s ringtone, avoiding an adrenaline-fuelled panic as you turn the house upside down. The device has a working range of 15m* so, unless your home has more than one wing, it should only take a moment to locate your phone.

Conversely, you can also cause the Fetch to beep on demand by using the corresponding app on your phone. That means, you can attach Fetch to whatever you are constantly misplacing, not just your phone. Now you can relax when it’s your keys that decide to disappear at the most inopportune moment.

But that’s not all. By pairing your HTC phone and your Fetch, you can set both devices to alert you if you ever leave one or the other behind (think of them as the Forrest and Bubba of the smartphone world). What’s more, if you lose both, there’s a convenient email notification feature lets you know exactly where your Fetch and phone were last together.

And here’s a list of other uses it can be put to:

  • Attach it to a pet or a child you don’t want to go farther than 15m from you. It will be alert you if that range is broken
  • Slip it into your spouses pocket or handbag. Why? Use your imagination.
  • Need to be rescued from a bad first date? “Simply pop the device in your pocket and with a single click your phone will ring, giving you the perfect opportunity to up and go.”
