Samsung’s New AirTags Rival Revealed, But It Still Has One Big Problem

While Samsung’s SmartTag 2 and SmartThings Find system are attractive, eagle-eyed users have noticed a distinctive absence in the MobileFun listing. Specifically, there is no mention of compatibility with any other tag-tracking system.

Generic, third-party tracking tags like Tile can be used with just about any compatible mobile device will be compatible with Google’s Find My Device feature, at least as soon as Google overcomes the delay of the ported version that was announced at the end of July. Samsung’s SmartTags, however, appear to be within a completely self-contained environment. This means that the SmartThings Find system could only be used to track Samsung tags, and SmartTag 2s could only be tracked by Samsung-branded Android phones. This could prove problematic for the device’s sales, as it would be effectively useless for users who aren’t already using a Samsung smartphone.

At the time of writing, Samsung has not publicly commented on the rumors about the SmartTag 2 or the isolation of the SmartThings Find system. As for the release of the device, there is no concrete date yet, though rumors suggest somewhere in the ballpark of October 2023. The MobileFun listing has the device priced at £42.99, or about $55 USD.
