They have a stylish and elegant look, as you can see in the pictures above. They are equipped with a powerbank, GPS, WiFi hotspot, alarm to warn you that you forgot to take it with you, and even a small camera that will turn on when you turn on “Lost Mode” in the Volterman app (only available for iOS devices).
