T-Mobile SyncUp Tracker

The SyncUp Tracker, one of the latest to get into the lost-and-found game. 


Following the release of Apple AirTags and Samsung Smart Tags, T-Mobile is getting in on tracker tag tech. The mobile carrier on Wednesday introduced the SyncUp Tracker -- a new addition to T-Mobile's line of SyncUp products. The tag uses T-mobile's nationwide LTE network and pairs with the SyncUp Tracker app for iOS and Android. 

In addition, the SyncUp Tracker gives near real-time tracking and virtual boundary alerts. The tag doesn't need to be in a specific range or near a smartphone to work, according to the release. The SyncUp Tracker also sports a light sensor and rings to help you find it more easily. The tag is water- and dust-resistant with a rechargeable 900 mAh battery that lasts about a week, depending on your use.
