Samsung’s Galaxy SmartTag+ Makes Finding Lost Items Easier Thanks To AR

Apr 12, 2021

Category: Tech

While the idea behind digital trackers like Tile is solid, their sound-based, hide-and-go-seek approach to finding lost items has never been as precise as we would like. But Samsung is revolutionizing the space with their new Galaxy SmartTag+, which uses Augmented Reality (AR) technology to precisely lead you to its location.

Rather than relying solely on Bluetooth for location tracking, the Samsung Galaxy SmartTag+ utilizes both Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and ultra-wideband (UWB) technology, enabling the device to pinpoint its location with far greater accuracy. The UWB tech also enables guided video to the SmartTag+ via AR. By using Samsung’s SmartThings app in a UWB-equipped Galaxy phone, you can visualize your item’s location more easily. Then, if you’re still having trouble locating the tag, you can ask it to ring for additional help. And for times when your SmartTag+ is not close enough to utilize the guided AR feature, you can view its precise location on a map in the SmartThings app. By the look of it, the Samsung Galaxy SmartTag+ definitely has the potential to be a gamechanger in the field of digital trackers once it’s released on April 16.
