The gadget retails for $370, and for that you get 3 years of service by way of the Sigfox network, which is a worldwide service that connects low-energy devices like place trackers. Not all airports assistance the network, but the quantity that do is expanding, and when your bag arrives at an airport on that list, you will get a notification on the LV Pass app on your smartphone or on your Louis Vuitton smartwatch, if you have a single. The Echo also has a light sensor, so it will inform you if your bag was opened whilst it was away from you. Theoretically, this could perform in any checked bag, not just the Horizon Suitcase.
