Verizon is now selling the coolest smartphone accessory we’ve seen this year

Best Smartphone Accessories Nokia Treasure Tags

Most smartphone accessories are pretty forgettable but Nokia’s Treasure Tags are designed to make things memorable. Treasure Tags, a new accessory that Nokia first unveiled this past February, are matchbox-sized tags that you can attach to your keys, wallet and other important items to make sure they never get lost. The tags, which are now technically Microsoft products after Microsoft’s acquisition of Nokia’s handset business, are now on sale at Verizon Wireless for $29.99 each.

The tags have have two key features: The first is the ability to connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth and NFC and then issue an alarm if you try to leave your house without your tagged items. The second feature is integration with Nokia’s HERE mapping service so you can use your smartphone to track down any items that you’ve lost as long as they’re attached to Treasure Tags. The tags obviously work with all Nokia Lumia smartphones but has also designed an app to make them compatible with iOS and Android devices as well.
