Bluetooth tracker: Apple, Samsung & Tile in a comparison test


The shock briefly led to shock – when the author of these lines noticed that his wallet had fallen out of his shopping bag in a drugstore. A few seconds later, the realization set in: There’s an airtag in there now! The search app quickly led to the checkout, where an employee had returned the item minutes earlier. Proof of ownership could also be easily provided via the tracker linked to the phone.

Late bloomers Apple and Samsung are shaking up the market

The scene that actually happened during the test period clearly illustrates the practical use of the smart trailer. Bluetooth tags for finding objects are not a new invention – the oldest provider of such solutions, the US company Tile, has been on the market with its products since 2012. Samsung, too, came with its “Smart Tags” to Apple’s market launch several weeks earlier. Nevertheless, people in the industry blaspheme that a good idea only reaches the mass market when Apple takes it over. This test clarifies whether the newcomers Apple and Samsung or the established Tile are the better choices.

Unfortunately, in addition to the benefit for the buyer, we also have to investigate another aspect: Increasingly, trackers are being discussed because of concerns about stalking. For example, a spurned lover could hide in the backpack or pocket of his / her loved one for a day and then follow all movements. That would make victims who have not made the decision to use a tracker at all. So it is also important what manufacturers do about such scenarios.
