Today, Nokia has announced Treasure Tag to help you keep track of valuable things like your car keys, wallet, or even your bag. Treasure Tag is a small 30 x 30 x 10mm device that gets paired to your Lumia Windows Phone via NFC or Bluetooth. Once you do that, you’ll be asked to download the Nokia Treasure Tag app from the Windows Phone Store. Once you get out of range of whatever you have “tagged”, both your Lumia Windows Phone and the Treasure Tag will emit a loud tone to alert you. If you miss an alert, you can use the Nokia Treasure Tag app to locate what you’ve lost on a map, powered by HERE. Cool, huh?
You can have up to four different Treasure Tags connected to your Lumia Windows Phone at any given time. And you can assign icons or photos to these Treasure Tags and pin them to your Start screen as they have Live Tiles and are colored to match the Treasure Tag. If for some reason you need to deactivate a Treasure Tag (let’s say you left your bag at home), you can by a long press on the Treasure Tag. You can also mute the alarm or put it into sleep mode from within the Nokia Treasure Tag app.
Oh and each Nokia Treasure Tag has up to six months of battery life which is replaceable.
