Update to Lookout's iOS app makes sure that you never leave your iPhone behind
You know that sinking feeling you get in the pit of your stomach when you can't find your smartphone? An update to the iOS version of mobile security app Lookout could prevent this from happening to an iPhone user. The update adds Apple Watch support with a feature that will keep an eye out on the specific iPhone that is paired to the Watch.

With this feature, your Apple Watch can show a visual on its screen showing how close or far away you are from your iPhone. And you can arrange to have your iPhone make a loud "scream" to help you find it once it drops out of the range of Lookout's Apple Watch app. Both the watch and the handset must be sharing the same Wi-Fi connection. If the worse case scenario happens and you misplace your iPhone, your Apple Watch can reveal to you the last known GPS coordinates of your phone. 

These are pretty useful features for the Lookout app since they really can prevent you from losing your iPhone, or finding it once it is gone. Make sure that you have the latest version of Lookout installed on your iOS flavored handset, and load up your Apple Watch with the Lookout app as well. Do this and you won't be worried about leaving your iPhone behind again.

Apparently people forget their phones often enough that there's a need for this. Rather then find my phone web related controls?

Doesn't the Apple Watch already have a Find My iPhone apps, which you can use to make your phone ring so you can find it? Though this is cleaver, it would seem that Apple would already have this as a 1st party feature.

Was lookout useful before this? Put it on my Nexus 7 which has adware/malware. Never really catches anything. Started using because already had it on Note 3. Hope the next Apple Watch is thinner. I have small wrist and a lot of smart watches are huge. Makes more sense for watch go thinner. Not so much for phones. Phones are thin enough already.
