Woolet is a smart wallet that you can’t lose

A next-generation, Bluetooth-enabled wallet that keeps your cash and cards safe.

Amid all of today’s hustle-and-bustle, it’s easy to lose track of things. If you’ve ever misplaced your wallet at home or left it behind in a bar, you can take comfort in knowing that there’s now a smarter option out there to help prevent such occurrences from ever happening again. That’s because a Dover, Delaware startup has set out to create the ultimate money holder to keep men’s most essential belongings safe and secure.


Based on an ARM Cortex-M0 MCUWoolet is an intelligent wallet that syncs to your smartphone and provides five different ways to locate it. The ultra-slim, leather-crafted accessory pairs with an accompanying mobile app via Bluetooth Low Energy, which will send you a reminder anytime you may become separated from your billfold  — a range that can be set between 20-85 feet. This, of course, makes losing your wallet and all of its valuable contents nearly impossible. Great news for the absent-minded!

Once an alert has been sent to the phone, a built-in distance tracker will help the owner accurately pinpoint the Woolet’s location. Meanwhile, clicking ‘Ring to Find’ will cause the wallet’s speakers to emit a customizable tone, like a dog’s bark or a wolf’s howl.


Don’t remember where you had your wallet last? No need to fret, as your phone automatically records Woolet’s most recent location. This means you already know the best place to begin looking — something that’ll surely come in handy after having no recollection from a night on the town. If truly lost, an owner can activate the crowd detection feature, which essentially sends out an APB to other Woolet users in the general vicinity to aid in its search efforts. As soon as someone comes in close proximity, its GPS location will be instantly updated to the phone.

The wallet is also self-charging, though the company is still experimenting as to whether these batteries will charge through body movement or heat. What’s more, Woolet is available in a pair of colors — black and suede — to fit anyone’s style.


“Woolet is just 9.9mm thin, yet ready for anything. Unlike other smart wallets, Woolet is a ‘full wallet.’ This means you don’t need to compromise on what you take. Woolet has four slots to accommodate all your cards. There is a large card slot for those bigger IDs and a hidden pocket. Woolet also comfortably fits larger banknotes, including euros and British pounds, so you’re ready for any country,” the team writes.
