skip

Motorola is preparing to release an updated version of the Skip, the NFC tag that allowed you to easily unlock your Moto X when kept near. The new Skip has made an appearance at the FCC, manual and all, and appears to be a triangular fob with rounded corners.

In additon to locking your phone, Skip comes with a couple of new capabilities. If you lose your Skip, or any item attached to it such as your keys, you can now use your phone to find it. Pressing a button in the companion app on your device will cause Skip to emit a sound. You can also reverse the function, using Skip to find your lost phone by double-tapping on Skip's button.

While there is no information about a potential release date for the new Skip, it's probable that we'll hear about it during Motorola's event on September 4. What do you think of the new Motorola Skip? Leave your thoughts below in the comments.
