Tumi launches 'Global Locator' luggage tracker with AT&T
Lost luggage will be a thing in the past if it’s up to Tumi. The travel lifestyle brand announced on Thursday the launch of the Tumi Global Locator, a wireless tracking device made in partnership with AT&T.
Designed and developed by LugTrack, a New Jersey-based technology company, the Global Locator provides travelers with location-specific positioning information for their luggage and travel bags. The device delivers real-time data through the use of GPS, GSM, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth technology, and it connects to a free mobile app on iOS and Android.
In addition, the Global Locator operates on four modes -- Travel, Sleep, Hotel and Proximity -- that the device can switch between with its Accelerometer sensor technology. Travel mode tracks the bag’s location every 20 to 30 minutes and builds a history of where the bag has been; Hotel mode allows the user to ensure the bag stays in one location; Proximity mode uses Bluetooth technology to tether the bag to a connected device; and Sleep mode is used automatically during flights.
"Tumi has long been a trailblazer in global travel, providing consumers with stylish, innovative and effective solutions,” said Rob Cooper, General Manager, North America, Tumi.
“We understand that one of the most stressful parts of any journey is the risk of losing your luggage, be that temporarily or permanently. The goal of the Tumi Global Locator is to make this a concern of the past, giving our customers a peace of mind and ensuring a more enjoyable travel experience. Tumi's Global Locator embodies all this with the focus on safeguarding our customers' belongings."
The Tumi Global Locator retails for $200 and is available at Tumi stores and on the Tumi website. The retail price includes one year of wireless location tracking service.
