The new Samsung SmartThings Tracker GPS tracking device connects through an LTE-M network to allows its users to track the objects, animals, or even kids that it gets attached to. The first carrier to bring it to the US is AT&T, who will add it to its portfolio on September 14. Verizon will join AT&T at a later time.

Samsung's smart home division is ready to flood the US market with a new GPS tracking device. Simply called SmartThings Tracker, this accessory is set to debut on AT&T this Friday. Last year, Samsung released the Connect Tag smart IoT tracker with GPS and eSIM support. The new SmartThings Tracker features GPS and LTE-M for greater coverage and better tracking accuracy.

In addition to the new network technology mentioned above, the highlights list of the Samsung SmartThings Tracker includes the following:

  • real-time location updates
  • SmartThings app access for multiple tracker alerts and smart home automation-related capabilities
  • IP68-rated for best use in all conditions
  • autonomy of up to a week on a single charge

AT&T customers will be able to buy the Samsung SmartThings Tracker for US$99 starting on September 14. The first 12 months come without any additional fees, but the pricing of the service is US$5 per month or US$50 per year after the end of that period. Verizon Wireless will add the SmartThings Tracker to its portfolio in the future as well, but there is no accurate date to talk about yet ("later this year" is as accurate as it gets for now).

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
