Tom's Guide

Decent range, compact footprint

from Tom's Guide
Battery life for the Duet is about six months, but Protag includes one replaceable CR2016 battery, so you can expect to get a year's worth of battery life out of the device before you pay up for new batteries. While it is the second-softest alarm we tested, when you consider the two-way tracking feature and consistent range, this is the most reliable choice if you're looking for a wireless key finder...

Another underwhelming Bluetooth tracker to help you find your keys

from GreenBot
All around, I was unimpressed with Duet. You can’t expect a $30 gizmo that’s barely bigger than three stacked quarters to have stellar battery life and a million features, but what’s there just didn’t work reliably. Sure, it’s easy to set up, straightforward to use, and utilizes a common, replaceable battery, but it didn’t always work the way it was supposed to... Full review

An item we wonder how we lived without.

from Macnn

Outside of some random beeps from the Duet, it is a fantastic little device to use. It never gets in the way of daily items, and the addition of Wi-Fi zones helps alleviate some headaches people could have with the device at home or work. Yes, it isn't a true GPS tracker. However, the Duet is trying to be a low-cost solution to reduce lost items, not a full-blown tracker. At $59 (or an introductory price on Indiegogo), the price isn't too high for a person that often forgets where things or placed, or always tries to keep a valuable item like their iPhone close by. In a home with children,... Full review

Worked as advertised

from BestTechie
All in all, I like the Duet. The tracker itself is simple technology, but the PROTAG software that runs the show behind the scenes is well done. Both work as advertised. If the company can get “safe zones” working properly — or, at least offer an easier way to disable alarms — I might pick up a few PROTAG Duets for my various belongings... Full review

Mildly frustrating

from SlashGear

Using the Duet in real life is mildly frustrating. Attaching the Duet to your smartphone with Bluetooth is easy, but once you start beeping, annoyances begin: telling your phone that you’re OK walking away from your keys, for example, means disconnecting the device and the app entirely.

We’ve been assured by PROTAG that the random beeping we’re hearing (far too often) is due to the app being in Beta. According to PROTAG, the app will send a command to ring the tag "just to know it is there for testing." This ringing is said by PROTAG to be less frequent as time... Full review

The Bluetooth tracker evolves

from Engadget
Given that this is still a pre-production device, I think Duet is going to do well if the few remaining issues are ironed out. At this point, I give it a better-than-average rating based on the replaceable battery, the "just loud enough" built-in beeper, and the well-executed app. Duet's the only Bluetooth tracking device that I feel confident enough about to actually recommend, and the price is definitely right...
