BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--StreetSmart today announced the launch of a 60-day Indiegogo campaign for the SmartWallet: the world’s smartest wallet.

The SmartWallet is made of genuine leather and includes a built-in Bluetooth LE locator, USB sync cable and a backup battery station for charging on the go. The SmartWallet will retail for $99 dollars with a $75 early bird special for the first 100 Indiegogo orders placed.

“Up to this point, wallets have served one basic purpose: to hold our personal items such as ID’s, credit cards and cash. We realized that wallets were capable of much, much more and developed technology to bring wallets into the 21st century,” said Samuel Pofcher, Co-Founder, StreetSmart. “The SmartWallet includes a built-in locater and a charger so not only will it keep personal items safe, but will help prevent users from losing their wallets and serve as a charging station for their smartphones.”
The SmartWallet pairs with a user’s smartphone to help prevent the loss of both devices. SmartWallet’s Bluetooth LE locator ensures that the wallet keeps track of the phone and the phone keeps track of the wallet. When unpaired, the SmartWallet saves the GPS location the devices were last paired at. If the smartphone is lost, the user can sign in to the SmartWallet app on another device and retrieve the same GPS information. When an un-pairing occurs, a text message will also be sent to the user’s smartphone alerting the user that the devices are out of range. Additionally, users can press a button on the SmartWallet that will result in the smartphone ringing for easy retrieval.
The SmartWallet also solves a recurring problem faced by smartphone users with low battery life: a means to charge their phones. The SmartWallet features a built-in USB sync cable with an iPhone lightning and Micro-USB Option and a backup battery charger, allowing users to charge their phones anytime, anywhere. The USB cables have their own compartment to hide them when not in use.
“No one wants to carry around a phone charger or a backup battery, but everyone has to carry a wallet because they need their ID,” said Stephen Lamarre, Co-Founder, StreetSmart. “So we decided to combine the two so that you are never without your charger, and yet it’s essentially only there when you need it. When you carry a SmartWallet, you’ll never have to worry about a dead phone again.”
The SmartWallet is available in two colors: black and black & tan. The SmartWallet is scheduled for delivery in March 2015. For more information on the Indiegogo campaign, click here. For more information on StreetSmart, visit www.streetsmartbrand.com.
