The iMatch has an unique Easy Connect system with which the user can easily physically connect the smartphone. The basic principle here is that the user only connects the iMatch to the smartphone when in use. Due to the fast linking method, the iMatch combines for the user the advantages of 1 device with identification processes, with the advantages of separate devices with other actions on the smartphone. To offer optimum flexibility in the support of smartphones, you will receive two 4-point magnetic stickers with the iMatch. This sticker can be affixed to the back of any mobile device. The magnetic connection does not interfere with the daily use of mobile devices.
