Back in July of 2013, we had caught wind of an upcoming Nokia Bluetooth accessory known as the Treasure Tag. A couple of months later, an image of the device was leaked, and after all the incessant teasing and rumors, Nokia has finally announced the Treasure Tag which will be going on sale come this April where it will be priced at $30. For those wondering what the Treasure Tag is, it is basically a Bluetooth accessory that one can attach to keys, bags, or valuables that the user would like to be able to track its whereabouts. Measuring 30 x 30 x 10mm, roughly the size of a match box, it isn’t very obvious making it great if you would like some discretion.
The Treasure Tag will pair with a Lumia device either via Bluetooth or NFC. The device actually works both ways. For example after pairing with your smartphone and you were to leave your house without your phone, when you are out of range, the Treasure Tag or your phone will emit an alert that will remind you that you have forgotten your device. Also thanks to the accompanying Windows Phone app, you will also be able to locate lost/misplaced items using Nokia HERE technology. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Bluetooth trackers and chances are it won’t be the last, but if you’re looking for an accessory that’s specifically geared for your Nokia Lumia device, the Treasure Tag will be it, although third-party apps for iOS and Android devices will be released later on as well.
