We featured a car gadget to monitor your tire pressure earlier. Yet, that one has fierce competition with this similar product from FOBO. The pack comes with four awesome trackers which do exactly what you would expect. They monitor the pressure of each tire, so you know when you need to add more air.

What is really stand-out about this car accessory is that the information can be relayed to an app on a smartphone. The app in question is applicable to most Android and iOS devices. On the app, you will find an easy-to-understand interface which gives you real-time information about the state of your tires’ air pressure. You can then use this information to make timely visits to a garage or gas station. A single download of the accompanying app is capable of capturing the details of up to 19 vehicles!
