Motorola Skip now helps you locate lost keys and phones


When Motorola launched its flagship smartphone, the Moto X, last year, it also introduced a plethora of handy accessories, one of which being the Skip — an attachable tap-to-unlock NFC clip, which was a great hit with consumers, so it comes as no surprise to hear that the Lenovo-owned company is now planning a successor to its penny-sized device.

According to a leaked promotional document which surfaced online earlier today, Motorola’s second generation Skip has undergone a complete design overhaul and transformed into a pretty useful key fob with built-in Bluetooth.

Like its predecessor, the Skip 2 allows users to bypass their password-enabled lock screen providing, of course, Skip’s paired to their phone. If the phone moves out of range of the fob, it should return back to its locked state.┬áIn terms of added functionality, the new Skip will now allow users to find their keys (if they attach the fob to their key ring) via a companion app on their phone and find their phone simply by pressing Motorola’s emblem button front and centre on the Skip 2.

The new Skip is set to incorporate a user-replaceable battery that can last up to one year with normal usage and is compatible with all Android devices running 4.3 Jelly Bean or higher, though, some features will remain exclusive to Motorola handsets.
