Samsung has launched a new Galaxy SmartTag2 tracker to rival Apple's popular AirTag. The company says the new tracker brings enhancements that enable new and improved ways to keep track of valuables; as well as, upgrades to design and usability that make SmartTag2 more helpful.

"We are constantly looking at ways to make people's lives more convenient through Samsung Galaxy's industry-leading innovations," said Jaeyeon Jung, Executive Vice President and Head of SmartThings, Device Platform Center at Samsung Electronics. "With the Galaxy SmartTag2, we set out to make sure Samsung Galaxy users can find their belongings in an easy and intuitive way. With an enhanced finding experience and a longer battery life, Galaxy SmartTag2 will provide users with greater peace of mind for longer and in more situations."

Here's a look at what's new with SmartTag2...

● Galaxy SmartTag2 now provides an improved Compass View feature, enhancing the user experience by providing arrows to show the direction and distance of the Galaxy SmartTag2 in relation to the user. This mode is available on any UWB-supported Galaxy smartphone, such as the Galaxy S23 Ultra2.

● The SmartThings Find app has also been upgraded. Newly registered Galaxy SmartTags now add a shortcut to the SmartThings Find app on the user's smartphone, allowing quick and easy access. Additionally, the app now features a full screen map view and an intuitive interface, making the experience even more seamless.

● When switching Galaxy smartphones, SmartTag2 now automatically re-syncs with your new Galaxy smartphone using your Samsung account.
● New Power Saving Mode, available alongside an improved Normal Mode. For those who rely on SmartTag to continually keep track of items, Power Saving Mode is the perfect option to maintain battery life while ensuring you can keep an eye on your things. With Power Saving Mode, Galaxy SmartTag2's battery now lasts up to 700 days, more than twice as long as previous Galaxy SmartTag models. Even in Normal Mode, battery life is now extended up to 500 days, a 50% increase on previous models. With the flexibility to switch between the two modes, users can track their valuables – from car keys to bikes – for longer.
● Galaxy SmartTag2's new compact size and ring-shaped design was created for ease. The large metal loop enhances product durability by using metal on the inside of the ring for greater resilience that can support accessories such as clips and keyrings. These accessories can also attach to bags and luggage.

● Galaxy SmartTag2's durability has also been upgraded with an IP675 rating for water and dust resistance. This enables users to keep track of their items in even more challenging environments, such as when travelling outdoors. For pet owners, there's no need to worry about everyday wear and tear on the device from pet's water bowls or running around outside.

Additional Features


● Galaxy SmartTag2 retains many of the popular features from Galaxy SmartTag and Galaxy SmartTag+ including both Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and UWB capabilities. Users can also leverage Augmented Reality (AR) Find technology to visually guide themselves toward their item using their Samsung Galaxy smartphone camera. In addition, Galaxy SmartTag2 works within maximum Bluetooth range of 120 meters and can control smart home appliances through the SmartThings app.

● Samsung remains committed to securing the privacy of Samsung Galaxy users, with the device's location only made available with the user's permission. SmartThings Find also encrypts user data and is supported by Samsung Knox for an extra layer of security. To maximize security and privacy, a SmartTag can only be tracked and accessed by one device and/or SmartThings Find account at a time.

● For Samsung Galaxy users, SmartThings Find can also provide security through its "Unknown tag alerts" feature. This alerts users of any unauthorized tracking by sending them a notification if SmartThings Find detects an unknown SmartTag moving with them. This helps prevent against the unwanted use of location tracking services.

● Galaxy SmartTag2 also works seamlessly with SmartThings Station, which is integrated with SmartThings Find – serving as an always-at-home device scanner – helping users keep track of valuables that have a SmartTag attached. SmartThings Station will notify users of the location of their tagged item – from personal items like TV remotes, wallets, keys and registered devices like smartphones, tablets, watches, and earbuds. Pet owners will also receive an alert when a tagged collar moves too far from the SmartThings Station, helping them keep furry friends close to home.


Pricing and Availability
The Galaxy SmartTag2 is available to purchase now in black or white for $29.99. A four pack is also available for $99.99.
