Anker's Eufy has launched a new Apple AirTag alternative. The Eufy SmartTrack Link is a smart security tracker that is compatible with Apple's Find My app. It works similarly to the AirTag except it is notably cheaper and has a standalone app if you are not planning to use Apple's application.

TL;DR

  • Eufy's SmartTrack Link is a smart tag certified by Apple.
  • The Eufy SmartTrack Link works both with Apple Find My and Eufy security app.
  • The smart tag costs $20 each.

The Eufy SmartTrack Link is one of the few tags that are Apple-certified. It means that it operates in the same manner as the AirTag by relying on a network of iPhones and other Apple devices to pinpoint the location of the tag. You can pair the smart tracker through the built-in Find My iPhone app. Alternatively, it can also be added to Eufy Security with more features and support for Android.

As regards the design, the tag has squared-off corners with an eyelet for hooking, which is another advantage compared to the AirTag since you won't be needing to buy a holder or case. Eufy's smart tag also features a built-in speaker that emits a sound when activated. The tag itself is water resistant and rated with a 1-year CR2032 battery before it needs a replacement.

In addition to finding lost items or pets, the Eufy SmartTrack Link can make any paired phone ring even if it is in silent mode. Other features of the tracker include a left-behind alarm, sharing of item locations, and a secure QR code link for easy scanning.

Eufy currently sells the SmartTrack Link on their website for $20 each. Surprisingly, they are currently running a promotion that slashes 20 percent off the SmartTrack's price. In contrast, the Apple AirTag individually costs $29 but it is only compatible with the Find My ecosystem.

Do you have a smart tag or tracker too? Which item did you attach the tag to? We'd love to hear your opinions.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
