CHOICE Expert Rating View more details.

The CHOICE Expert Rating is made up of the safety score (70%), range score (15%) and ease of use score (15%). We emphasise the safety score due to the potential hazards of the button or coin batteries these products contain.

Safety score View more details.

The safety score is based on our lab testing, and/or the alternative test reports supplied by the manufacturer. See How we test for more details.

Range score View more details.

Range is measured indoors and outdoors. These results are combined into a single range score. A high score generally indicates good performance both indoors and outdoors. See How we test for details.

Ease of use score View more details.

We assess the steps required to set up the tracker, install the app and then register the tracker. This includes the clarity of the instruction manual and whether the user interface is intuitive. We also test and score how easy it is to use the app when tracking an item as well as versatility, which refers to the various ways the tracker can be attached to items.

Passed safety tests View more details.

Whether the product passed testing to the mandatory safety standards for button and coin batteries (based on either our own laboratory testing, or the manufacturer's legitimate test report to one of the other allowed test methods).

Source of safety result View more details.

Whether we've based the safety test result on our own CHOICE lab result, or a legitimate external lab's report (supplied by the manufacturer). See How we test for why we've taken this approach.

Average outdoor range (m) View more details.

Measured in metres, this is tested in a sporting field with no obstructions. Testing is paused if anyone walks in the line of sight between the phone and tracker, and an assistant stands near the tracker to make sure it isn't stolen or moved.

Alert speaker volume (dB) View more details.

Speaker loudness is measured in decibels (dB) at a distance of one metre from the tracker but doesn't contribute to the overall score.

Alert duration View more details.

Alert duration is recorded in seconds but doesn't contribute to the overall score.
