Track man’s best friend (or vehicle) with this tiny piece of tech

The versatile little Pod 3 GPS Tracker can attach to… well, pretty much anything. Whether it’s your dad’s motorbike, drone, boat, or even pet – simply attach the Pod 3 and you’re away.  The Pod 3 can track location using GPS technology, monitor health and fitness, and record adventures with motion data. Plus, it’s fully waterproof, so he won’t have to worry about it going for a dip. Using an embedded Vodafone roaming SIM card, the Pod 3 is capable of working across multiple networks in each region, and across more than 175 countries globally.

Time to spring into action

Finally, there’s a smart watch in Australia that’s 4G SIM-enabled!
