They charge by Lightning cable and will be offered in black, white, blue, & gray.
Taking the Bluetooth tracking tag device a very practical step further, Ping has added GPS & cellular connectivity to their new tracking tag. The result is “always-on global tracking”, meaning a much greater likelihood you’ll find what’s missing. Whether your lost item fell down under the car seat or you dropped it in a city now thousands of miles behind you, you’ll know exactly where it is. Ping is also smaller than the popular Tile trackers while being much more powerful.
