Samsung unveiled two new object trackers – Galaxy SmartTag and Galaxy SmartTag + – alongside the Galaxy S21 series earlier this year. While the entry-level Galaxy SmartTag became available for purchase immediately, the Galaxy SmartTag + was recently launched in the United States. Now the company has announced that it has launched the Galaxy SmartTag + in South Korea.
The Galaxy SmartTag + is priced at KRW 39,600 (around $ 35) in South Korea, and it will be available in two colors: black and denim blue. The Object Tracker can be purchased through 11Street, Coupang, G Market, Naver Smart Home, and Samsung’s online and offline stores.
Samsung’s premium object tracker is small and can be tied to an object via its lanyard port or stuck on via a sticker. It has a loud ringer, a multifunction button and a removable battery. It is IP53 certified for resistance to dust and splashing water. Besides Bluetooth 5.0 LE, the Galaxy SmartTag + also features UWB (Ultra-Wideband) for greater accuracy when finding the device. The Galaxy SmartTag + is only compatible with Galaxy smartphones and tablets, and it works with SmartThings.
Using the SmartThings Find service, you can find the SmartTag + easily through AR mode. Customers can also choose to let other Galaxy users find their SmartTag + if the tracker is not within range of their smartphone. SmartThings Find data is fully encrypted, so only you can see its location. The device button can be used to control smart home products.
