At the Nova 10 series event, the anti-lost device, Huawei Tag, made its debut. This device will help its users find their missing belongings. Its small design makes it portable and can be attached to a key, pet collar, or bag.
Huawei Tag anti-lost device features
This product marks Huawei’s entry into the tracking device market. It also helps grow Huawei’s ecosystem, as it only connects with HarmonyOS 2.0 devices. It weighs only 6g and is 5.6mm in thickness, so carrying it about isn’t an issue. Not only that, but it also produces a sound that reaches 92dB. This makes locating the smart tag easy.
Another feature of this tag is its battery, which lasts more than a year. It is also water-resistant, so dropping it in water won’t get it spoilt. It also supports NFC, which it uses to get its owner’s information once in lost mode.
Other available tags have security concerns regarding stalking. Huawei did a good job keeping situations of stalking to the barest minimum with this new tag. Once an unknown Huawei Tag is following a user, the trigger safety alert 5 system kicks in. This system alerts its owner (on their Huawei device) of any unknown tag following them. Huawei says that this device notification is almost instant, giving the user ample time to get rid of the unknown tag.
Huawei Tag anti-lost device price and availability
