An AirTag tracker is a worthwhile investment if you’re the sort of person who regularly misplaces things like keys, bags, wallets or other valuables. The tiny item trackers can easily be dropped into a bag pocket or attached to a keyring to keep tabs on anything you’d want to keep close, and right now Walmart is offering a 2023-low price on a four-pack of Apple’s trackers. It’s down to $80, meaning you’re paying just $20 per device and undercutting the price of a single AirTag significantly. Verizon has the same deal going on right now, and Amazon was matching the price earlier before the deal sold out. Keep an eye out for a restock there.
Apple’s AirTag trackers work seamlessly with your iPhone and the Find My app and offer a super simple one-tap pairing process. You can then throw a tracker into a pocket as is or grab an appropriate AirTag accessory in order to clip them to keys, hook them onto a bag, stick them to your bike or attach them to anything else you want to keep track of.
Once set up, the AirTags will show up in the Find My app and show your items on a map so you can easily find them. If an item is in your vicinity, you can use the app to play a sound on the AirTag’s built-in speaker to help you find it and use the Precision Finding feature to be guided to your lost possession. This is handy if you’re just looking for your keys around the house, for example. If you lose an item further afield, you can put it in Lost Mode which will then ping you if the AirTag is detected on the Find My network and allow you to add a message and include your phone number or email address.
Each AirTag is powered by a CR2032 coin battery, four of which are included with your purchase and which last around a year before you need to replace it. AirTags are IP67 water- and dust-resistant too, so you don’t have to worry about them getting damaged if exposed to the elements.
