It has a replaceable C1616 battery that the company claims to last a year. It can be easily attached to a keychain or locker key and it feels nothing as it is pretty small and thin. Moreover, the device has dual adhesive sides that can be attached to any flat object. The one thing that sets back the awesomeness of this device is that it is not waterproof.

The setup process very similar to other Bluetooth devices, you just have to turn on the Bravo and pair it with your smartphone like any other appliance. The pairing speed was fast and I didn't find any connection drop whatsoever. The device works seamlessly fast and only when you need it to.
When you need to find the device, just tap the Ring icon on the app, and the Bravo starts producing siren like the sound that is audible enough to identify and irritate you as well. The Bluetooth range is quite good and you can identify the lost keys or your naughty dog in the radius of 50-70 ft. With the siren, although the companies claim it to be around 100 feet.

One another but a premium feature of the TrackR Bravo is the Crowdsourcing. Any Bravo user can use it, but first, you need to sign up for the TrackR Crowd GPS.
