Works quite well
I’m using the Black Edition carry-on and am happy to report the app and functions all work as advertised. Nicely done.
So far not so good
The series 1 bag arrived today. Its charging now. I have an iphone8 and downloaded the latest update yesterday in case either fact is relevant. Downloaded the app, clicked on register and entered my name, then it asked for my email and hitting the corresponding key on my phone typed the letter below what I was pressing. When I finally figured how to navigate that, I couldn’t get NEXT to work. If the app don’t work, the bag’s going back. Too bad, I love the bag so far.
Update: I finally got past NEXT after restarting my phone and reloading the app. It synced properly, correctly identified the bags location on GPS, locked and unlocked properly and told me it was 66% charged. Love the size and look of the bag. I bought this suitcase to solve some recent problems I had while traveling.
On one trip, while my husband was putting his shoes on at security and I was digging in my purse for the luggage key to lock my old bag, he rushed me so I threw the lock in my purse and didn’t realize till we got to the gate that I left my wallet on a bench while digging thru my purse. The last trip I took had several plane changes and on two of them, they made me and many other passengers check our bag before boarding as the plane was very full. Last second fumbling and locking is annoying. This smart luggage locks with a tap on the app and no keys or number locks to mess with. If I forget, once the luggage is moved away from me it locks as well. The other problem I recently had was when my 7 hr flight became a 12 hr flight, due to a runway delay on the first leg of my journey. My phone was charged when I started, but after the 2nd flight, my layovers were 50 mins and I was scrambling to get to my departure gate, no time to sit and wait for a charging station to become available. With this bag, I can plug in my phone after removing it from the overhead storage and zip it into the front pocket and my phone is charging as I am getting to my gate, stopping for coffee, etc.
Everything seems to be working at this point, I will be traveling again in a month and will update if I feel it would be helpful.
Got rid of the annoying ad
But the app still fails to connect to the device. Without carrying the keys this thing is a disaster. It's a nice suitcase pretty much, but the electronics and app are utterly useless.
