Wistiki Bluetooth tracker review | CES2017

wistiki voila

To stand out in this heavy Bluetooth tracker market, Wistiki went for design, look and style. Wistiki tasked designer Philippe Starck to make that tracker.  He succeeded with three designs for Wistiki under the names aha!viola!, and hopla!. Each is unique in shape with shared color schemes.

While I tried to imagine what it would look like before opening the package or viewing the website, I still was not prepared. It just looks stunning. Time will tell how long the body holds up to bangs and drops though.

After a successful Kickstarter, they went into production targeting a unique need with each of the three styles. I was able to test the voila! in yellow. I immediately liked the packaging and found the device to resemble a USB stick or small pack of gum, with an amazing esthetic look and quality.  The stainless steel body does model itself after some USB vendors. While the yellow tip was not removable it gave a clear view of the actual tracker device inside.  There is only one small indent on the body that activates the Wistiki. More on that in a moment.
