Alongside the Galaxy S21 series smartphones and Galaxy Buds Pro earbuds, Samsung also debuted Galaxy SmartTag, and SmartTag+ at the Galaxy Unpacked 2021. The Galaxy SmartTag and SmartTag+ is the latest smart tracking device designed to keep track of easy to lose items such as keys, wallets, or even pets and help find it in case the items are lost.
The smart device comes in two variants: SmartTag, which uses Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy (LE), and Smart Tag+ that uses Ultra Wide Band (UWB). The SmartTag+ will be released later this year, whereas the SmartTag is already available for pre-order and is available for purchase from January 29. The price of Galaxy SmartTag is $29.99.
Samsung Galaxy SmartTag Overview:
The Galaxy SmartTag is a small diamond-shaped device with rounded corners and a circular hole in the upper corner to attach a lanyard and clip them up to the keys, wallet, backpack or even to pet’s lease.
The Samsung Galaxy SmartTag has a CR2032 battery that is replaceable by the users. Samsung claims the battery to last for months. The device has a dimension of 39.11mmx39.11mmx9.9mm and weighs 50.80 grams.
The Galaxy SmartTag pairs with the SmartThings app so it only works with the Galaxy device. The Samsung Galaxy SmartTag uses Bluetooth Low Energy v5.0 (BLE) technology to communicate the SmartTag and the Galaxy devices’ location. It works within a range of 120 meters.
A built-in speaker on the Galaxy SmartTag allows the user to ring the tracker if it is within the range from the Galaxy device.
The Galaxy SmartTag also features a button that lets the user control the Internet of Things (IoT) devices connected with the SmartThings app in the smartphone.
