Needless to talk about inconvenience of frequent travelers whose bags seem to turn up missing a bit too often. In order to waylay this problem, travel and luggage brand Tumi has created the Tumi Global Locator. This smart device will let you wirelessly track your bags anywhere in the world. Developed in partnership with AT&T and LugTrack, this small gadget uses a combination of WiFi, Bluetooth, GSM data and GPS to give you its precise location no matter where it is in the world.
The device automatically shuts off while it’s on a plane that’s in the air so as to not interfere with any flying regulations. When it comes back down, it turns back on. Sounds simple enough.
The Global Locator device and mobile application—scheduled for commercial release near the end of 2015 – will be available in Tumi stores and online. Pricing information will be available soon.
