We first heard about the Nokia Treasure Tag back in September, when it was expected to be unveiled at the Nokia World 2013 a month later. But having missed the date, the Bluetooth accessory has finally been unveiled today. Nokia has priced the Lumia accessory at $29.90 (Rs 1,860 approximately) and it will be available globally from April onwards.

The Treasure Tag accessory is targeted at people who tend to forget things at a place and waste time looking for it. This accessory, measuring no more than a matchbox, can be connected to your Lumia smartphones via Bluetooth or NFC and will beep if you leave it behind. There is a companion app (available on the Windows Phone Store) that works with the accessory. In case you have left the Treasure Tag, where you can’t hear it beep, the app shows you the device’s last known location using HERE Map.

You won’t have to worry about charging this accessory either, since it uses a standard coin cell battery, which can last up to six months. The Treasure Tag will be available in four color variants including cyan, yellow, white and black. It will work with all smartphones that have Lumia Black update installed and Nokia has also promised third-party apps for compatibility with Android and iOS devices.

Last year, HTC too launched a similar accessory called Fetch and functionality similar to the Treasure Tag. It costs Rs 2,399 and this Bluetooth 4.0-enabled device is compatible with the One mini, One max and the Butterfly S.
