If you’ve ever lost your luggage while traveling, you know what a headache it can be to get it back. Now Tumi has paired with AT&T and LugTrack to create The Global Locator, so you’ll never have to worry about your luggage again.
The high-tech luggage tracking device uses WiFi, GPS, and Bluetooth technologies to track customers’ baggage. Simply stow the smartphone-sized tracker inside your bag, briefcase, or suitcase to ensure it never gets lost.
Travelers are able to then track their bag’s movement from a mobile app on their smartphone or tablet. It’s also FAA compliant, meaning it powers down during flight and turns itself back on when back on the ground.
Telecommunications provider AT&T offers connectivity and LugTrack is in charge of the device’s hardware design and patented technology.
Pricing has not yet been revealed. Tumi will be available around the end of 2015.
