Galaxy SmartTag2’s brand-new Lost Mode allows users to input their contact information via a message.

Anyone who discovers an item with a Galaxy SmartTag2 attached can use their smartphone to scan the tag and see the owners’ message and contact information.

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.

Lost Mode works with any mobile device with NFC reader and web browser.

Galaxy SmartTag2 now provides an improved Compass View feature, enhancing the user experience by providing arrows to show the direction and distance of the Galaxy SmartTag2 in relation to the user.

This mode is available on any UWB-supported Galaxy smartphone, such as the Galaxy Z Fold5.

The SmartThings Find app has also been upgraded, with newly registered Galaxy SmartTags that now installs a shortcut to the app on the user’s smartphone, allowing users to launch SmartThings Find more quickly.

Additionally, the app now features a full screen map view and an intuitive interface, making the user experience even more seamless.

Finally, when switching Galaxy smartphones, SmartTag2 now automatically re-syncs your new Galaxy smartphone using your Samsung account.

More details below from the press release.

Sleek Design Adapts to Even More Conditions and Brings More Use Cases

Galaxy SmartTag2’s new compact size and ring-shaped design was created with ease of use in mind.

The large metal loop enhances product durability by using metal on the inside of the ring for greater resilience that can support accessories such as clips and keyrings.

These accessories can also attach to bags and luggage.

Galaxy SmartTag2’s durability has also been upgraded with an IP67 rating for water and dust resistance.

This enables users to track their items in even more challenging environments, such as when travelling outdoors. For pet owners, there is no need to worry about everyday wear and tear on the device from pet’s water bowls or running around outside.

Galaxy SmartTag2 also supports a new pet walking mode, making it easy for users to log walks with their furry friends.

Peace of Mind, Repackaged

Galaxy SmartTag2 retains many of the popular features from Galaxy SmartTag and Galaxy SmartTag+.

It takes advantage of both Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and UWB capabilities, leveraging Augmented Reality (AR) Find technology to visually guide users toward their item using their Samsung Galaxy smartphone camera.

“At Samsung, we are constantly looking at enhancing our Galaxy ecosystem to bring greater convenience to our Galaxy users through our innovations. The Galaxy SmartTag2 boasts a longer battery life, and an enhanced finding experience, which completes the Galaxy experience by allowing users to tag and locate their belongings easily, offering a greater peace of mind,” said Ronnie Ng, Head of Mobile Experience, Samsung Electronics Singapore.

In addition, Galaxy SmartTag2 works within a maximum Bluetooth range of 120 meters and can control smart home appliances through the SmartThings app.

Samsung remains committed to securing the privacy of Samsung Galaxy users, with the device’s location only to be made available with the user’s permission.

SmartThings Find also encrypts user data and is supported by Samsung Knox for an extra layer of security.

Furthermore, disabling Lost Mode immediately hides the owners’ contact information and wipes the message left by the owner from the device.

For Samsung Galaxy users, SmartThings Find can also provide security through its “Unknown tag alerts” feature.

This feature alerts users of any unauthorised tracking by sending them a notification if SmartThings Find detects an unknown SmartTag following them.

This helps protect users and prevent against the abuse of location tracking services.
