T-Mobile has introduced its newest product today that adds to its SyncUP line. The new device, called SyncUP TRACKER, is a device that keeps track of your valuable items through the use of T-Mobile’s nationwide LTE network.

According to data gathered by T-Mobile, the average American spends 2.5 days a year looking for lost items, collectively costing U.S. holds $2.7 billion annually in replacement costs. T-Mo wants to do its part in lowering this number by allowing their customers to keep track of their important devices. 

“SyncUP TRACKER brings peace of mind to customer’s most prized possessions and valuables, which is why we’re putting the power of our network behind it,” said T-Mobile’s Chief Marketing Officer, Matt Staneff. “From families to cars to now things, T-Mobile’s network is connecting just about anything — because it has the power and reliability customers can depend on.”

The good thing about SyncUP TRACKER is that it does not rely on Bluetooth connectivity to track your things. By using T-Mobile’s LTE network, the device you’re tracking can be found just about anywhere. You won’t even need to be in range or near a smartphone to work. 

Some of the features available with the SyncUP TRACKER include the following:

  • Location Tracking
  • Virtual Boundaries
  • Ring When Lost
  • Customizable Profiles
  • Light Sensor
  • Water and Dust Resistant
  • Rechargeable Battery
  • Easy Setup

The SyncUP TRACKER will be available in T-Mobile stores starting Friday, May 7th. Each one costs $2.50/month (Full retail price: $60) for well-qualified customers under T-Mobile’s no-interest Equipment Installment Plan for 24 months. You can also pair this with data for $5/month with AutoPay.

      Be sure to keep the land line though, so you can call your lost cell phone, so you can use the cell phone to find your lost object :)

      I actually think this is a good idea, but I am not sure how fine the range is. I think Tiles, you can locate something with a few feet.

        Ha, ha!
        Hopefully with 5G it would be within inches…

    “the average American spends 2.5 days a year looking for lost items,”

    And most of the time those lost items are – the phone. Would need a phone clapper. Clap three times and the phone beeps so you can find it.

      Years ago before the smartphone arrived, they used to do the pants belt clip phone case with recoil.
      I was really sorry to see that discontinued- you couldn’t drop break the phone or misplace it.

    I would say that this would be good for someone that is always losing their keys.. But I could see other features that it would be good for too.. have a neighbor that is always stealing your stuff.. Attach this to an item that you know they would steal, and then when it comes up missing, call the cops and follow the tracking..

    One thing I am kind of disappointed about is the size and lasting of the battery. only a 900 mah battery?? That is equivalent to a rechargeable NiMh AAA battery.. and it only lasts a week?? Most people that lose stuff that much are not going to remember to recharge this thing every week.
