To buy: amazon.com, $30 (originally $40) 

Measuring 6.5 inches by 9 inches by .39 inches, the Samsung Galaxy SmartTag+ has a handy keychain hole that allows it to securely fasten around your luggage tag. It provides an extra layer of security with its 393-foot Bluetooth range (Note: When your lost luggage is out of range, the SmartTag+ uses scanned data to locate it privately). With the click of a button, it connects to your Android smartphone, Galaxy tablet, and other Samsung-compatible devices through the SmartThings app so you’re never out of the loop. 

Lost checked bags aren’t the only items that you can track with the Samsung Galaxy SmartTag+; attach it to keys, smartphones, purses, wallets, and other belongings that you want to keep a close eye on. If you’re using it to find your keys and phone, the SmartTag+ has a convenient “ringing” feature that will aid in your search. It also lights up green so you can easily spot it in dark rooms too. Pet owners admit that it also fits perfectly on their dog’s collars and gives them peace of mind as it notifies them when they’ve wandered out of range. 

“I could think of 1,000 uses for these, like your luggage, car, keys or even tracking an elderly parent if they are prone to wander off,” one Amazon reviewer wrote. “I’ve had other tracking devices, and this one is hands down the best, and you don't need to pay for monthly service like many others.” 

A traveler chimed in to share that the SmartTag+ “located my luggage across [the] continent with unbelievable accuracy to the gate level at the airport… The app navigated me to the building and by activating the signal strength locator, it directed me to the location of the luggage waiting by one of the conveyor belts.” Another customer added that getting one before their trip to Europe was “a wise choice” as it helped confirm that their “luggage was near the connecting plane before takeoff.” For one travel enthusiast, it even helped them locate their bag before it was stolen on a train. 

Also singing the Samsung Galaxy SmartTag+ its praises, a shopper said, “They are surprisingly accurate and the battery seems to work for months with little deterioration.” They also added that they “use these for my son's E-bike, my backpack, my luggage, my spouse's car, my son's car that lives 700 miles away.” Another customer noted, “I set it up to send a text alert with a press of its button. If she needs help in any way, I will get a text, ‘I need help.’”
