Samsung’s Galaxy SmartTag2 comes with new features that improve the tracking experience. In terms of design, the SmartTag2 sports a more compact elliptical form factor and has a larger ring loop.
New Lost Mode, Compass View features
The new Lost Mode on the Galaxy SmartTag2 makes it easy for anyone who discovers it to find the contact information of the owner. Users can input their contact information via a message and the person who finds it can easily scan the tag using their smartphone to see information such as the owner’s contact and their message. The feature works with smartphones with a NFC reader and web browser.
“This means a Galaxy SmartTag2 attached to a pet’s collar is now a convenient way to ensure the pet owner’s phone number is always there, in most places where the pet might wander,” Samsung said in a press release.
Coming to the Compass View feature, Samsung says it has been improved to enhance the user experience. It now shows arrows in the direction and distance of the GalaxyTag2 in relation to the user. However, do keep in mind that the mode can only be used on a UWB-supported Galaxy smartphone.
New features for SmartThings Find app
The SmartThings Find app now includes newly registered Galaxy SmartTags that install a shortcut to the app on the user’s smartphone. A full-screen map view is also available on the app as well. There’s also a new pet walking mode.
Battery Life Improved, Now Said To Last 700 Days
The battery on the Galaxy SmartTag2 lasts longer thanks to the new Power Saving Mode. Compared to the previous Galaxy SmartTag models, the battery on Galaxy SmartTag2 is said to last 700 days with Power Saving Mode. With the Normal Mode, the battery is said to last 500 days, which is an increase of 50 percent.
Improved Design, Privacy Features
Samsung Galaxy SmartTag2 comes with a large metal loop design for greater resilience. It can support accessories such as clips and keyrings. It supports an IP675 rating for water and dust resistance.
Further, the Galaxy SmartTag2 supports features like Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), UWB, and Augmented Reality (AR). Given the Galaxy SmartTag2 works within a maximum Bluetooth range of 120 meters, it can also be used to control home appliances using the SmartThings app.
Security features include location sharing only with the user’s permission, and data encryption in SmartThings app, which is supported by Samsung Knox. The owner’s information and message are immediately hidden when Lost Mode is disabled.
