8 Bluetooth trackers to help find lost items

We all lose things from time to time or put them somewhere safe and forget, so these bluetooth trackers will help to make your lfie less stressful

Losing or being separated from your luggage on holiday may be one of the worst ways to start a trip and while it may be a nightmare scenario that may not happen to everyone, the chances of it happening are never zero. Similarly with day-to-day life, you may find yourself misplacing keys or your phone from time to time but you can have some relief from the stress of lost items with useful gadgets like tracking tags.

Here are a few of the best ones that are available to buy on the market.

 

Apple AirTag

AirTag

Unassuming but effective, AirTags only require an iPhone with a U1 chip to function and with Ultra-Wideband technology, you can use them to accurately pinpoint the location of several things, from wallets and keys to luggage.

The AirTag features a replaceable battery that lasts for over a year and all communication within Apple’s Find My network is encrypted for privacy.

Note: Only compatible with iOS.

 

Tile Mate (2022)

Tile Mate

Tiles are another Bluetooth tracker that are compatible with Android and iOS systems. With Tile you can find the most recent location of an item and using the app, you can ring the device to find an item when it’s within Bluetooth range.

The device is also water-resistant (IP67) and has a non-replaceable battery that lasts up to three years.

 

Eufy tracker

Eufy’s smart tracker is a great choice for finding misplaced items and avoiding losing them altogether, with an intuitive left-behind alert system via the Find My app.

You can also find your phone even on silent mode, as well as share the location of items with your friends and family with the Eufy security app.

Note: Only works with iOS, iPadOS and macOS devices.

 

Atuvos tracker

Coming as either one device or in a double pack, the Atuvos tracker can be attached to bags, wallets and luggage in order to find them. It has a 120-metre range but with networks of connected Apple devices, it can still help to find lost items.

Note: Only compatible with iOS.

 

Samsung Galaxy SmartTag

Don’t despair just yet if you’re an Android user looking for a Bluetooth tracker, as Samsung’s SmartTag is also a solid option. It is simple to use to retrace and find your lost items with its tracking functionality.

Note: To be used with a Galaxy smartphone running Android 8.0 or higher with 2GB + RAM.

 

Chipolo One (2021)

Coming individually, in a pack of four or as a card tracker, all versions of the Chipolo One can be used to find lost items. Both water-resistant and loud, the Chipolo can play 120db sound to help you find your missing items with relative ease.

You can find your items in up to a 350ft range or further than that with the Find My network with the MiLi key tracker. It comes with a loop which allows you to attach it to several things, from your keys to luggage or even a collar on your favourite furry friend.

Tile Pro (2022)

Functionally similar to the Tile Mate, the Tile Pro works with both android and iOS but has enhanced features, including a longer range and louder ring to notify of an item’s whereabouts.
