Nokia Treasure Tags Keep Track of Your Stuff
February 22nd, 2014
Nokia has rolled out a new product that will launch in April called Treasure Tag. The Nokia Treasure Tag is a small square device that is designed to be attached to your belongings to help you keep track of them. This might be the perfect thing for those that tend to lose their keys or bag all the time.
When you walk away with your smartphone and leave your keys on the counter, the Treasure Tags will produce an audible tone. If you take the keys and leave the smartphone, the alarm will sound. The idea is that the sound will remind you to grab up all your belongings and help you find them.
The tags sync via NFC and Bluetooth to your mobile device. The Treasure Tag is 30 x 30 x 10mm, making it about half the size of a matchbox. Each one weighs just 13 grams, so you won’t even notice it inside your bag or on your keys. Battery life for each Treasure Tag is about six months, and they can be replaced with an inexpensive CR-2032 coin cell battery.
Out of the box, the Treasure Tag integrates with Nokia phones running Windows Phone for the OS. The tags will also be supported via a third-party app for iPhone and Android users. The apps will support up to four tags at once and each tag will cost about $30(USD).
