Baggizmo Returns to Kickstarter to Launch their Smart Wallet, Wiseward

Posted by Joe Garza on 2017-06-15

Because one successful Kickstarter campaign just wasn’t enough, Baggizmo has returned to the crowdfunding platform to promote its newest product: a smart wallet called “Wiseward”. The company’s goal is $35,000, but since they’ve already raised nearly a third of that as of this writing, with almost a month to go, it looks like they’re on track for another lucrative crowdfunding campaign.

Founded by Ladislav Juric, a Graduate of the Zagreb Founder Institute, Baggizmo’s first product was an ergonomic everyday carry bag for men that was designed to carry numerous tech gizmos and gadgets without becoming bulky or uncomfortable. With wearable tech’s popularity on the rise, it’s no wonder that Baggizmo raised over $44,000 in their last Kickstarter campaign, well above their original $35,000 goal. 

And for Baggizmo’s next trick: a smart wallet, one they claim is the world’s smartest and most technologically advanced bi-fold wallet.

While that may seem like a bold statement, considering that this wallet comes equipped with RFID chips to prevent theft, a UV lamp detector, bluetooth capabilities, magnet sensor, wireless charging, and much more, and can carry all of these things along with up to 15 credit cards and still remain slim, it’s no wonder this wallet needs a whole infographic to list its features:

In addition to all of these features, the wallet also comes equipped with the Wiseward app that comes with battery status; wallet movement detection notifying you if it falls; a feature signalling by push notification and/or sound alarm that the wallet is almost out of reach; detection and tracking of wallet usage by indicating its open/closed status; and, of course, plenty of other tricks that are too numerous to list out here. Check out the video below for more details:


Wiseward is available in jet black, true blue, cardinal red, sandy beige, noble blue, and vintage brown in tweed, and is crafted in Italy from innovative, eco-friendly materials. As a special bonus, all backers of their Kickstarter campaign will receive the product before it goes to retail, so early adopters can rejoice!
