‘Lookout’ for Apple Watch Alerts You if You Leave Your iPhone Behind

Mobile security company Lookout has released an app that alerts Apple Watchowners if they have left their iPhone behind. Lookout 4.3 runs on the iPhone and Apple Watch, monitoring the Bluetooth connection between the two, and if the connection is lost between the two, the app buzzes the user on their Watch.

If an iPhone has been misplaced, but is still within Bluetooth range, the users can check the Lookout distance meter on their Watch that shows how far away from the iPhone they currently are. (Sort of a “you’re getting warmer…” type of thing. Or, maybe it’s more like “Marco Polo” if you use the “Scream” function? – Ed.)

Lookout can also make an iPhone emit a loud “scream” to help the owner locate the device, even if it’s out of Bluetooth range, or set to silent mode. (The two devices do have to be connected to the same local Wi-Fi connection.)

If the iPhone is no longer connected via Bluetooth, or on the same Wi-Fi network, the app displays a map showing the device’s last known location, using it’s GPS signal, working similar to Apple’s Find my iPhone app. (Why hasn’t Apple released a version of Find my iPhone for the Apple Watch yet? Hmmm…)

Lookout is free, and is available for the iPhone and Apple Watch in the App Store. [GET IT HERE]
