Besides that, there are three ways of wearing: necklace, bracelet and clip for fixing on clothing.

Instead of the CR2032 batteries in Hideez Key 2 used is charged via a microUSB battery capacity of 70 (according to other sources — 80, the device still exists in the prototype) mA-CH, which, according to developers, enough for 2 weeks of work. Inside the case size millimeters 38х18х10 there are three antenna — Bluetooth (2.4 GHz), RFID (124-134 KHz) and NFC (12.56 MHz). Multifunctional key became more noticeable, it added a touch panel and two LEDs. The key distinguishes between short and long press can be programmed for custom functions. The device must support firmware updates “over the air” and works in conjunction with the server to authorize (and the passwords are stored in ustroistve, not on the server).
