Keeping track of your more vulnerable loved ones or of your personal stuff can be tough sometimes. Sure, there are many devices which can simply be attached to an object or person, but they do not have unending battery life. Samsung knew this was the most widespread problem with smart trackers, so it decided to release a device of its own.
Connect Tag surpasses the battery limitations
Sometimes, it might be hard to keep an eye on your kids, pets, or even objects, so there’s always the option of attaching a smart tracker to them, and being always connected to their location via a smartphone app. However, constant tracking drains the battery, but Samsung found a solution.
The new smart tracking device is called Connect Tag, and takes advantage of the disadvantages of similar equipment. It is powered by a narrowband tech, which can run for an entire week after one single charging session. All this technology is contained in a compact encasing, which makes it easy for it to attach to almost anything.
The device is also waterproof, so you can easily attach it on your dog’s leash without fearing it might damage it. Also, you can give it to your kids to carry around, or hook it to your bags. Moreover, you can choose a specific area where the object or person should keep roaming and, whenever the device gets out of the area, you are alerted on your smartphone.
The smart tracker will be available only for Android
Connect Tag can easily work as a regular smart device, so it has other appliances as well. You can connect it with different equipment in your home, and tell it to turn on the lights or the TV. However, it has some disadvantages.
Since it’s produced by Samsung, Connect Tag can only be paired with an Android smartphone. The company hasn’t revealed anything about an iOS version yet, but there’s still some time until it comes on the market. Also, Samsung hasn’t mentioned anything about the price, and it might be a little too spicy for some users.
