Reliance Jio has come up with an Apple AirTag alternative called JioTag Air in India. The device tracker is launched with Apple’s Find My tracking network’s support. In comparison, JioTag Air’s predecessor, the JioTag worked only on the JioThings platform. Let’s check out all the other upgrades you get with this new Jio device tracker. But first, here’s how much it costs:

JioTag Air price in India, availability

JioTag Air is available for Rs 1,499 as part of a launch offer. Its original price is Rs 2,999. You can pick the device in Grey, Blue, and Red colour. It is retailing through Amazon India, JioMart and Reliance Digital.

The newcomer is more expensive than the first-gen JioTag and is available in more outlets. Meanwhile, Apple AirTag costs Rs 3,499 in India.

How JioTag Air works

  • You can track keys, wallets, backpacks, packages, luggage, vehicles, pets, and even people (for safety).
  • It connects to nearby devices through Bluetooth 5.3 and is compatible with iOS and Android.
  • Outside the Bluetooth range, it taps into JioThings and Apple’s Find My network (global coverage) to triangulate the location.
  • A JioTag Air can be used by one person at a time through the JioThings app.
  • To locate your JioTag Air’s location, you can sign in to the JioThings app or Apple’s Find My platform. Then, you can trigger a loud sound alarm of 90-120 decibels. You can find the recently updated location and directions to it. If the lost device is spotted on JioThings or Find My network, you will get an alert.
  • You get a disconnection alert if the device is left behind.
