During the Galaxy Unpacked in January, Samsung announced its first Bluetooth tracker alongside the Samsung Galaxy S21 smartphones. The Galaxy SmartTag was launched as a competitor to some of the best Bluetooth trackers out there, but then Samsung also teased an even better version of the tracker that would be released at an unspecified time. Although without much fanfare, this date happens to be ours. Galaxy SmartTag + is now available for pre-order.
Like other Bluetooth trackers, the Galaxy SmartTag and SmartTag + can be attached to items like backpacks, luggage or even pets and tracked with a Bluetooth signal. Samsung even has a great crowdsourcing trick where the tag silently pings other nearby Galaxy devices when they are out of range. That way you can improve the position. We have a handy guide on using the Galaxy SmartTag on your Samsung phone to help you set up your new tracker.

The Galaxy SmartTag + does it even better. Thanks to the advantages of ultra-broadband (UWB), the new version of the tracker can allow users to position and track much more precisely. It can provide an AR powered map to guide you through your day and make it easy to find your items. Tile has been rumored to be working on a tracker with UWB, which shows how impressive the technology is.
Update, April 30th (8:10 p.m. ET) – Available from Samsung and Amazon
After a short pre-order period, Samsung appears ready to sell its Galaxy SmartTag +. The new item tracker is available to purchase right now after Apple launched its own UWB-based Apple AirTag. The Galaxy SmartTag + is available now for $ 40. There are two colors available, black and denim blue.
