Taking a dip in technology, Louis Vuitton has announced the launch of their luxury luggage tracker. Priced £235, the Echo is the perfect tech for those who frequently travel with expensive luggage.
The low-energy device has been designed with a light sensor that will detect your bags’ location via a smartphone app or even LV’s Tambour Horizon watch. Bragging up to six months of battery power, the Echo luggage tracker is available in black or brown and can be charged using a micro-USB.
The new hi-tech fashionable tracker has been designed in collaboration with French wireless services company Sigfox, who confirmed that the luxury high-tech tracker is compatible with the Louis Vuitton Horizon luggage range, and allows for luggage-tracking in major airports around the world. “As global operations are split into three geographical zones, the use of Monarch unlocks endless applications in logistics and supply chain, the consumer market, and automated maintenance for the shipping, aircraft and railway industries,” Sigfox said.
Competing with Samsonite International, the world’s largest travel luggage company, who have also launched an advanced global tracking device, Louis Vuitton’s relatively minimal device is not alone. If the Echo is too much of a big spend for you, then note that you can get a more straightforward luggage tracker on Amazon for around £50.00.
