Louis Vuitton might be a brand that most of us might associate with luxury leather products, like handbags, wallets, belts, and so on. However in case you didn’t know, Louis Vuitton also makes their own series of luggages, and now it seems that in order to better protect these luggages, the company is developing its own luggage tracker.

This is evidenced by a smartphone app and an FCC filing that the company could be working on something, but there is no official confirmation yet. The device is said to be capable of working internationally and will last up to six months on a single charge and can be easily recharged via USB.

The tracker is capable of slipping into Louis Vuitton luggages via a special compartment, and will pair with the accompanying smartphone app. The tracker is obviously not made by Louis Vuitton themselves, but rather it appears to be developed by French startup Axible. The concept of luggage trackers aren’t new and there several options out there.

In fact recently at CES 2018, Tile announced partnerships with various companies include luggage maker Samsonite, where Tile’s Bluetooth tracking technology will be integrated into future products. No word on when Louis Vuitton’s tracker will be released or how much it will cost, but given the branding we doubt that it will be cheap.
