"The BlueTipz wireless transmitter is an alarm that alerts you on your smartphone when you have a strike on your ice fishing tip-up."

i'm not surprised that this product exists, but it kinda goes against the spirit of the sport (for me, anyway).  technologically, pretty cool

I guess good old paying attention is now going out the door. Why not??? If you drive while looking down at your phone instead of the road, fishing should just be all about the phone as well. I'm glad I grew up during the normal times.
Enjoy the oceans, lakes, ponds, rivers and land as they are. But remember, it's not just yours. Carry out what you carry in.

Just a fair warning to anyone buying the Blue Tipz transmitters to fish over any distance. They advertise a range of up to 600', but I could only get them to work inside of 75'. I bought two of them to fish from shore at my house and found them useless for what I need. I am now out over $100 because I even bought the booster to double the range.  It still is nowhere close to what I need and not even near half of the distance they advertise!
