Ever lose your keys, wallet, files and couldn’t find it until very much later? This will not be a problem anymore as Nokia has just launched Treasure Tag!
It’s basically a $30 device that you can attach to your valuables so you will get notified when you get separated with them.
Here’s how it works.
Pairing is simple. Either use NFC to connect, or search for the Tag within the Bluetooth* settings of your phone.
If you leave the house without one or the other, the two will emit a loud tone to alert you of this fact.
The accompanying Nokia Treasure Tag app can be downloaded from the Windows Phone Store right from your Lumia. Conveniently, however, the first time you pair the Treasure Tag to your phone you’ll be prompted to download it.
If the situation arises and you hear the tone from either the phone or the Nokia Treasure Tag, you’ll hopefully be within range to hear the tone of the other device – making it very easy to locate.
Should you miss the alert for some reason, don’t worry. The clever app will help you to locate the lost item on a map, powered by HERE.
For now, Treasure Tag only works with Lumia devices. Nokia says “there will also be third-party applications for Treasure Tag to support Android and iOS devices.” The accessory will start shipping in April, priced at 24.90 Euros (approximately $29.90) with a choice of cyan, yellow, white, and black colors.
