$25 Motorola Keylink is a perfect gift for the absent minded and/or Android 5.0 Lollipop user


Motorola Keylink FOB

We all know that one person, whether it’s a friend or family member who is constantly freaking out over their misplaced keys or smartphone. Back during the Moto X (2014) event, Motorola also unveiled a unique little product called the Power Pack Micro, a battery charger that doubled as a key/smartphone locator via Bluetooth.

Today, Motorola has unbundled that Bluetooth tracking function from the Power Power Micro and made it available as a tiny key FOB dubbed the Keylink. A spiritual successor to the Moto Skip, we actually got our first glimpse of the device back in August thanks to an FCC filing. The Keylink serves a variety of purposes. The first is and most obvious is beeping on your keys should you ever misplace them. It also works the other way around via the Motorola Connect app (compatible with most Android devices) to ring your smartphone if lost.

Our favorite? If you’re running Android 5.0 Lollipop you can take advantage of their new “trusted devices” feature to keep your phone or tablet unlocked while in proximity of this little device. Other Motorola Keylink features include:

  • Compatible – Motorola Keylink pairs with any Android or iOS smartphone using the Motorola Connect app.
  • Key/phone finder – Make your phone ring anywhere up to 100 feet away. Or use the app to see where your keys are on a map.
  • Skip your password – Keeps your Motorola, Droid, or any Android 5.0 Lollipop smartphone unlocked when your keys are nearby—no need to enter a password.
  • Splash-proof – Keylink can get a little wet
  • Battery that lasts – Full year of battery life using a replaceable standard coin cell battery

The perfect gift for the absent minded, we’re not sure what took so long, but you can buy the Keylink direct from Motorola for just $25 via the link below.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. Seems really big, any smaller products out there that do this?

    1. Its not very big at all — take another look at that photo. Those are small keys — a padlock key and a desk drawer key.

  2. Nice, would like one but for as little as I would need it, $25 seems a bit much.

    1. If you’re only using it to find your lost keys or phone, maybe (unless it happens to you a lot!), but it’s very nice for Smart Lock if you don’t regularly use another Bluetooth device.

  3. Doesn’t work with trusted devices on 2013 moto x?

  4. I like this – it’s the first thing like this I’ve seen that look like it “fits” on a keychain (for keychain look / feel).
    Any idea if a phone set to vibrate / silent would ring with this item? or would it stay set to silent?

    1. I just tried to ring my moto x 2014 via the moto connect chrome extension and app. Rang loud and clear with my phone set to vibrate. I would assume that the Keylink would work as well since it uses the same app.

    2. Yes it will, just tried.

  5. I’m so getting this for my wife. Then all she’d have to do is try not to lose both her keys and phone at the same time.

    1. We must have the same wife :-)

  6. I guess that I missed out. Website says “sold out”

    1. Check out a local T-Mobile store.

  7. already out of stock…? :O

    1. Back in stock

      1. And gone

        1. it’s back, but no international shipping :( I hope ther will be other stores to buy from…

    2. T-Mobile stores have them.

  8. Dang! Out of stock?

    1. Check out a T-Mobile store

      1. not in Canada ;-)

  9. Was out of stock 15 mins ago, now I ordered some, get them while you can.

    1. T-Mobile stores are stocking them. A local store had 4-5 so I picked one up today.

  10. It’d be nice if you could make the fob beep from the phone.

    1. Read the article again… It can.

  11. Does it work with multiple phones or only one phone at a time?
