What is U-Tag?
Accessory U-Tag is a Bluetooth tag which can be connected to your belongings as well as devices, so that you don’t miss them. Whenever you miss them, you can locate them using a buzzer in close range and the same will also be indicated through alerts on your phone in case it goes beyond a certain distance from the smartphone. The phone will also keep uploading its location to their server, which will track its location without overwriting the previous location.
