Hipkey
After its announcement at CES earlier this month, Hippih has begun selling its hipKey smart sensor in the U.S. through the Apple Online Store for $90. It launched on European Apple Online Stores back in December, but quickly sold out. It's now back in stock on both the U.S. and European stores.

The hipKey is a high tech way of keeping track of your valuables. Simply attach the device to the item of your choice and you’re ready to go. Made of a sculptured one-piece anodized aluminum ring surrounded by high-quality plastic parts, its sleek oval form fits perfectly in your palm or pocket. You can even attach it to your keys.

Alarm mode - Warns you if you forget your iPhone or iPad or if someone attempts to steal it.

Child mode - Alerts you if your child wanders too far away from you.

Motion mode - Put hipKey in your bag and you are alerted if someone moves it.

Find Me mode - Quickly find your iPhone, iPad, or your keys at any time.

The hipKey's battery is supposed to last between two and four weeks between charging. The iPhone app is available free on the App Store, while the device itself is $90 through the Apple Online Store.

It's cool and I want to buy but I don't lose my stuff. The remotes on the couch. Keys don't run away. And my iPhone 5 doesn't jump out of my pocket.

I'd like to have one that I could use for second-factor authentication for secure sites. IE, have to get the fob close, plus provide username/password.

That's a really good idea. You would just need some type of bluetooth adapter on your computer/device.

I like the looks of the app, but Stick N Find is still way cheaper:

But Stick N Find does not have the same features!

You can't use Stick N Find to locate your phone or to know if your phone gone out of range because someone has grab it...

hipKey is a diferente and more complete product ;)
Stick N Find does both of those.
@PNutts:
StickNFind can't find your phone and StickNFind will not alert you if you forget your phone. The alerts happens on your phone and you can only make StickNFind sound when you ping it.

Virtual Leash
This feature allows you to create a virtual Leash on a sticker, if that sticker moves away more than the approximate selected distance from your phone, your phone will Alarm you. http://sticknfind.com/product

StickNFind is a solution to mainly find your stuff (Therefor the name) and not your phone. There is a virtual leash but it alarms only on the phone!

hipKey is a solution to not misplace/forget your iPhone. It also has a Motion detection feature, Find your iPhone and hipKey feature, a Child Mode and not to forget a Safe Zone feature.

I see two very different product with quite different purposes.
