Treasure Tag helps keep track of objects via Bluetooth proximity

Nokia will be shipping its rumored Treasure Tag item-tracking accessory in April, the company has announced. The Tag, which uses a combination of NFC and Bluetooth, is designed to be attached to important objects, such as a bunch of keys, and via an app, provides feedback on where the tag is in the event it is misplaced or lost.

Up to four Treasure Tags can be connected to the same smartphone, according to the Nokia Conversations blog, with both the tag itself and the smartphone making a loud noise to warn if they are too far apart. If the audio warning is ignored, the app will provide the last known location of the Tag via a map, with the noise reactivating when the Tag is back in range of the linked smartphone.

Weighing 13g (0.45 ounces) and measuring 30mm square by 10mm thick (1.18x1.18x0.39 inches), the tag will be supplied in a choice of four Lumia style colors, and while it will work with Lumia devices, it will also function on Android and iOS using a third-party app. Nokia expects to sell the Treasure Tag for $30.
