3 Reasons to Love Zomm

1. A wireless, Bluetooth-enabled tether for your phone - it alerts you when you are separated from your phone so you'll never lose it again.

2. It also functions as a speakphone with a noise-canceling microphone.

3. In an emergency, you can use the Zomm to call 911 with one button.

Our Take

Maybe it's because I'm mildly OCD and ALWAYS know where my phone is, but I'm underwhelmed with the Zomm. It's cool, but it's cool in a Skymall kind of way where you'd probably use it for a month or two and then it would get left in the junk draw one day and never see daylight again.

The Sharks seem impressed though, and Henry's numbers are great - at least at first. Then (as they always do), the Sharks begin to smell some blood in the water. Something's fishy. The company is losing money. Why? Seems like they over-estimated how many sales they'd have over the Christmas season and they're sitting on $2 million worth of inventory.

This is a classic "Icarus" story of flying too close to the sun. The Zomm company, and Henry, its leader, tried to go too big too quickly.
