Ditto is a very small (size of a thumbprint), sleek clip-on device that notifies you of important calls, messages and notifications, so you don’t have to worry about hearing your phone ring or feeling it vibrate. Ditto vibrates whenever someone you’ve flagged as important tries to contact you. The device also acts as an invisible tether for your phone, alerting you if you accidentally leave your phone behind.
