Verizon now sells a $100 tracking device with one year of free service | The Verge

Verizon today launched sales of the $99.99 Verizon Smart Locator, a tiny device that can be kept with your keys, bag, or other possessions (or pets) that you never want to lose. Similar to the Samsung SmartThings Tracker that AT&T sells, Verizon’s new gadget uses a combination of Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi-based positioning (WPS), and LTE coverage “for pinpoint accuracy wherever your mobile network is present.”

Unlike a Tile, which requires you to be in Bluetooth range to find a missing item it’s attached to, Verizon says the Smart Locator will work even if you’re nowhere near it. (Tile also has a community-based feature that alerts you if another Tile owner should pass by your lost property.)

A companion Smart Locator Hub app for smartphones allows you to adjust the frequency of location pings — doing less of them will help preserve battery — and set up other options like geofencing (for a dog in your backyard, perhaps) or add up to 10 trusted contacts who will also be able to check where the Locator is if there’s a situation where you’re unable to.
