Samsung Electronics today announced the Samsung Galaxy SmartTag2, available starting October 11. Galaxy SmartTag2 brings design and usability enhancements to the Galaxy SmartTag line that enable new ways to keep track of valuables.
Intuitive Features Help You to Find Lost Items
The new Lost Mode feature on the Galaxy SmartTag2 allows users to input their contact information with a text message. From there, anyone who discovers an item with a Galaxy SmartTag2 attached can use their smartphone to scan the tag and see the owners’ message and contact information. This means a Galaxy SmartTag2 attached to a pet’s collar is now a convenient way to communicate the pet owner’s phone number, along with a personalized message. Lost Mode works with any mobile device using an NFC reader and web browser.
The Galaxy SmartTag2 now also 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 Ultra.
Users can now launch the SmartThings Find app more quickly, thanks to an upgrade where the newly registered Galaxy SmartTags installs a shortcut to the app on the user’s smartphone. Additionally, the app also features a new full screen map view and an intuitive interface, making the user experience even more seamless. Finally, when switching Galaxy smartphones, the Galaxy SmartTag2 automatically re-syncs with your new Galaxy smartphone using your Samsung account.
Sleek Design with Useful Functionality
The new compact size and ring-shaped design on the Galaxy SmartTag2 was created with ease of use in mind. The large metal loop enhances product durability by using metal on the inside of the ring, and can support accessories such as clips and keyrings. These accessories can also attach to bags and luggage. The Galaxy SmartTag2 is crafted with enhanced durability with an IP67 rating for water and dust resistance. It also supports a new pet walking mode, allowing users to log walks with their furry friends.
Peace of Mind, Repackaged
Galaxy SmartTag2 retains many of the popular features from Galaxy SmartTag and Galaxy SmartTag+. It takes advantage of both Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and UWB capabilities, leveraging Augmented Reality (AR) SmartThings Find technology to visually guide users toward their item using their Samsung Galaxy smartphone camera. In addition, Galaxy SmartTag2 works within a maximum Bluetooth range of 120 meters. SmartThings Find allows users to choose when to share their devices’ locations through their Galaxy SmartTag2 by either turning Lost Mode on or off. Disabling Lost Mode immediately hides the owners’ contact information and wipes the message left by the owner from the Galaxy SmartTag2.
