The Perfect Gift for Dad This Father’s Day

“My father didn’t tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it.” — Clarence Budington Kelland

Do you have one of those dads who will do anything for you, without asking for anything more than a “thank you” in return? If so, now’s the time to show him how much you appreciate him—That’s right, this Sunday, June 19, is Father’s Day!

We think ZOMM makes a great gift for Dad…but you don’t have to take our word for it.


Jim Gorzelany included ZOMM in his “Great Car-Themed Gifts for Dads” post for Forbes. So if your dad sounds something like this:

Auto aficionados tend to be a breed apart from mere motorists. While it’s cliché to infer they have motor oil coursing through their veins, their interest in all things vehicular run much deeper than the mere act of getting from one location to another,”

Then ZOMM makes a great gift!

Luxe List ZOMM

The Luxe List’s Merilee Kern boasts ZOMM as a gift to “help him keep better track of it [his phone] — and the related stress at bay”. Her guide was also featured on Associated Content.

ZOMM Fox news

And Fox News contributor John R. Quain listed ZOMM as a great tech gift for Dad (or grads) because, who hasn’t forgotten their cell phone?

What are you getting your Dad for Father’s Day?

Special to The Miami Herald

Bzzz, flash, screech — that’s your cell phone being left behind. Well, actually, that’s the new ZOMM Wireless Leash, a little round keychain-sized device that, when activated, uses Bluetooth technology to detect and sound an alert when you and your Bluetooth-enabled cellphone become separated by 20 to 40 feet. The Bluetooth connection also lets the ZOMM act as a speakerphone, so you can answer an out-of-reach phone with the press of a button. A built-in panic-button feature lets you initiate a piercing alarm, and auto dials 911. Alas, it can’t keep the phone battery going or boost reception. But stay tuned.

Zomm Wireless Leash is $79.99 at www.zomm.com; 888-821-0888

ZOMM start-up story featured on MSNBC

Booming Business: Zomm

MSNBC’s Your Business

5:13 | Jan 16, 2011 – There are plenty of big names at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas every year, but small business owners are making their presence known as well. For most companies, the road to CES takes years, but for one small Oklahoma tech startup, it took only months. So how did Zomm do it? It was one part inspiration and one part shear force of will.

See ZOMM in action with Hands-On ZOMM Reviews

ZOMM co-founder and CEO Henry Penix always says, “The fact that the ZOMM Wireless Leash is the first of its kind is a good and a bad thing…”

And he’s exactly right. Our Wireless Leash is a young and unique product. That makes it hard to explain, in words alone, just how it works. That’s why we’ve taken the time to create numerous videos demonstrating how to use ZOMM.

However, we also understand that it can be nice to get the opinion of a real-life ZOMM user (outside of our company). So here are a few user reviews that we have seen on YouTube:

ZOMM Featured in Scientific American’s “2010 Gadget Guide”

SciAm‘s 2010 Gadget Guide: 10 Gizmos Taking Digital Learning and Entertainment to the Next Level [Slide Show]

Big pop-tech dominated the headlines this year, so we present an array of mainly pint-size products that may have sneaked under your radar.

Image 8 of 10 Image Link COURTESY OF ZOMM LLC

Are you sure you have your mobile phone with you each morning as you’re rushing out the door to go to work? Attach ZOMM, LLC’s alarm to your key ring and, assuming you haven’t also forgotten your keys, the device—four centimeters in diameter—will start to flash and vibrate when it gets more than nine meters from your phone. (The two communicate wirelessly via Bluetooth.) Because of this Bluetooth connection, the ZOMM device can also act as a speakerphone with built-in noise cancellation, enabling you to answer your phone even when it’s out of reach. A panic button feature lets you sound a 40-decibel alarm and call for local emergency assistance.
Cost: $90
