In this part of our guide, we’ve taken a look at the very best smart luggage solutions for making your trip as smooth as possible.
The smart luggage carry-on that does it all, the Bluesmart One is an intelligent suitcase looking to redefine the way you think about luggage.
A truly smart luggage device packed full of intelligent, interconnected and airport anxiety-saving features, the Bluesmart utilizes Bluetooth and allows you to locate and track its location, remotely lock the case and check the weight of what you’ve packed, all through your smartphone.
With a built-in digital scale, simply picking up the Bluesmart by the handle provides you with an instant weight readout on the app – incredibly useful at helping ensure you never go over a weight restriction again.
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 in the airport.
An integrated digital lock is controlled via your smartphone or device and allows you to access your smart luggage with ease, while a proximity sensor automatically locks the case when you’re separated.
And what if you do get separated (like, 2000 miles separated)? Well, this is where the Bluesmart comes into its own. Internal tracking sensors will keep you updated with the exact location of your valuables, displaying the coordinates on a map within the app.Learn More About the Bluesmart Carry On Smart Luggage

One of those little annoyances of modern living has to be when something you’re looking for goes missing.
Whether it’s a set of keys, an elusive phone or your wallet, the important stuff we keep in our pockets always seems to have that habit of ending up somewhere it shouldn’t, right when you need it most – no more so than when you’re packing for a trip or already travelling
This is where the simple genius of the Tile family of smart trackers come into play.
The Tile Mate and Slim are both tiny Bluetooth trackers for keeping an eye on your wallet and pocket valuables, wherever they wind up.
With a slimline design (the thickness of two credit cards) made for fitting perfectly into a wallet or pocket, the Tile Slim is made to be placed wherever it’s needed, without being obtrusive and noticeable when it’s not.
Tile Slim is a discrete way of tracking your things and works by connecting to your phone through a companion app and letting you know where your wallet has wandered to at the tap of a screen.
The Tile Mate works in the same way as it’s slimline sibling but incorporates useful holes for looping onto drawstrings, bags, keys, and those bits of travel gear and luggage that are perfectly suited to attaching things in this way.
We’ve all had that moment where you need to grab your wallet, find your passport, or locate that missing item before rushing out the door but just can’t find it. With the Tile Slim and Mate devices, simply tap the screen on the app and the relevant Tile will ring, revealing the hiding place of your missing valuables – Under the bed or in that jacket you never wear anymore.
If your wallet has been left further afield though, the Tile smart trackers get really smart.
Firstly, the system will ‘remember’ where you were when it was last able to connect to the device from your phone.
If this doesn’t throw up any clues, the app will anonymously enlist the help of other Tile users who come near your Tile (and of course, wallet) and will let you know exactly where it is when this happens. If your wallet gets left under your seat on the bus for example, as soon as another Tile user gets on the bus, the app will let you know it’s found your possessions.
The Tile Slim is thin enough for multiple applications outside of pockets as well, and combined with the Tile Mate smart trackers, you can use this set to simply attach to any valuables and be sure that your things will always be found without adding extra weight into the equation.Learn More About the Tile Mate and Slim Combo Pack Here
