Modern life is fast-paced and wild, and it’s a commonplace to misplace a thing or two on our rush off to work or back from it. However, if you’re prone to losing things often, you might want to consider getting a gadget that will help you find it without having to waste your precious time searching for it.

Today we’re here with the XY Find it review; a cool little contraption that basically works as a GPS for any Bluetooth-based valuable you have.

What is XY Find it

Basically, XY Find It is a small, compact Bluetooth device that locates other Bluetooth items, such as smartphones, tablets, and pretty much anything that utilizes this sort of technology. Just like its name suggests, it’s a ‘finder’ that tracks the exact location of the devices within its range.

It comes supplied with a ton of very convenient features, such as the ‘Hot & Cold tracking’, audio buzzing, and such. Moreover, you don’t need to worry about the compatibility of the versions of XY Find it and your other Bluetooth devices – the beacons will work just the same.

How does XY Find it work?

XY Find it GPS works in a very simple way; it comes supplied with a package of Bluetooth beacons that you should attach to the valuables you are most often misplacing or losing. You can use your PC or your smartphone to access the XY Find-it application to locate the item you’ve lost or misplaced.

The first inconvenience that presents itself is that you won’t be able to access the app immediately if you misplace your own smartphone. However, you can always borrow your friend’s phone or use a PC for as long as you’ve attached the beacon to your phone.

Another cool feature is the ‘Hot & Cold’ mode. People who have impaired hearing can still use XY Find it by activating this feature. The vibrations will ‘decrease’ as you’re further away from the missing item, and vice versa.

The last and probably most convenient feature of this little gadget is the ‘stolen-item finder’. Basically, you can setup your phone to send you an SMS message whenever it leaves the pre-set boundaries.


One of the best things about XY It finder is that it has a superior battery lifetime. Namely, this gadget’s battery can last up to five years before it needs a replacement. Furthermore, the gadget (as well as the beacons) is small and fairly compact, so it can be carried around pretty much everywhere easily.

Last, but not least, there are a ton of very convenient features onboard, such as the stolen item tracker and the Hot & Cold feature.


The only downfall of XY Find It gadget is that it can’t be used standalone. You’ll need to use a phone to gain access to the app that governs all the features. This obstacle is easy to gap, though, as you can use other smartphones (from your family, for example) or a PC.
