TRAVEL HACK OF THE WEEK

Friday - - Recipe Cards -

How of­ten have you ar­rived at your des­ti­na­tion with­out your lug­gage be­cause it has been mis­placed? Sam­sonite, the Amer­i­can lug­gage man­u­fac­turer, is cre­at­ing an in­no­va­tive track­ing de­vice called Track&Go. Sim­ply drop the de­vice into your travel bag and its hi-tech Nar­rowband-IoT (NB-IoT) tech­nol­ogy lets own­ers track their bags. This new ge­olo­ca­tion tech­nol­ogy is said to cover a wide range and has a long bat­tery life so users can track and mon­i­tor their bags on their smart­phones across long dis­tances and over a long time with­out the de­vice pow­er­ing out or los­ing sig­nal. The prod­uct is still be­ing tested with tele­com ser­vice providers Voda­fone but keep an eye out – it will be­come com­mer­cially avail­able around Oc­to­ber 2017.
