Today we’re talking about travel. Seriously smart travel.
The Bluesmart Smart Carry-On Suitcase aims for nothing less than to revolutionize the way we think about our relationship with luggage.
Pitched as the first suitcase to “connect wirelessly to your smartphone”, the Bluesmart is, in our opinion the future of connected travel.
With so many things going for it, it’s hard to know which of the features of the Bluesmart to talk about first – we really were surprised and impressed about how many of our “travel annoyances” were answered by this case – but one of the first benefits that really stood out to us was the option to weigh the case using a scale built into the handle (with the weight shown on the companion app).
This super-handy feature could be a lifesaver if you find yourself picking up some extra weight at the airport to ensure you don’t exceed your allowance.
The Bluesmart also offers a charging dock, with two USB ports which are built into the case itself, allowing you to power your phone up to six times from a charge – I mean seriously, think of the times this would help when one of your devices is in desperate need of juice but there’s not a free outlet to be found!
Where the Bluesmart Carry-On shows it’s uber-smart credentials in our opinion though is through the ability to track your bag anywhere in the world using 3G and GPS tracking.
The tracking utility of the Bluesmart means that whatever happens on your travels to separate you from your valuables, the luggage will have your back! Whether ‘re-routed’ by the airline, stolen or left behind, the app and suitcase will work hand-in-hand to ensure that you know exactly where your stuff has ended up.
But the best part of this feature? Global coverage and absolutely no costs for using the tracking service – worldwide peace of mind.
Each Bluesmart Carry-On contains an inbuilt digital lock for remote locking.
Approved by the TSA, this awesome feature allows you to lock and unlock your bag with the use of the app on your smartphone.
So, the Bluesmart is packed (see what we did there?) with smart tech and stress-saving functionality and that puts it high on our list as a travel essential.
But how about the other traditional features we look for when choosing a suitable piece of luggage for the trip?
Well, let’s start with the essentials.
The Bluesmart measures in at 22″ x 14″ x 9″ which puts it in line with most international standards for airline carry-on requirements.
With a capacity for a total of 34L, the Bluesmart provides a good degree of packing space making it a suitable option for short vacations, business trips or longer journeys.
An awesome additional feature (and again, one that addresses a major headache for us at the airport) is the inclusion of a compartment for storing electronic devices, meaning they’re reachable when you hit security – no more fumbling around through packed clothes to reach your laptop or tablet!
As well as allowing control of the case’s smart features, the Bluesmart app includes other useful additions such as the ability to receive travel alerts based upon your itinerary.
Travel can be a drag, and let’s be honest, it almost inevitably involves some degree of stress or unexpected ‘event’ taking place.
The Bluesmart Carry-On Suitcase represents a departure from the traditional way we use luggage and begins to alleviate some of the hassles of travel.
A feature set as long as your arm and stylish utility to match make the Bluesmart the ideal travel companion and a smarter way to enjoy your journey.Learn more about the Bluesmart Carry-On here
