EatSmart Precision Voyageur Luggage Scale
No one likes unexpected overweight baggage fees and those normal bathroom scales can be a hassle to use for luggage. Luckily both of these problems can be easily fixed by this lightweight and portable luggage scale. By simply clipping it onto the handle of your bag and lifting, it automatically measures the weight of your bag and instantly displays it on the built-in screen. It can weigh luggage up to 50 kilograms, but is very light itself so can be packed away for your return trip. Never worry again about the problem of overweight luggage!
Trakdot Luggage Tracker
If losing your luggage is one of your greatest travel worries, then Trakdot is the perfect gadget for you. This tracker monitors the cellular network to determine its city location when it lands, confirming and notifying you on its location by text message or email. It can be linked to multiple devices and works internationally so long as a cellular network exists. Don’t worry about it taking up space or weight either – it’s completely portable.
Tile – Bluetooth Tracker & App
So once you’ve got your luggage tracked, you’ll want to ensure your keys, wallet, and other valuables are taken care of. When you’re moving around a lot, it’s easy to lose track of where you’ve place things. Tile is a handy tracker that attaches to your items and allows you to use Bluetooth to “ring” the Tile gadget and track it down. Once you install the app and connect it to your Tile devices, you can either make it ring loudly or check the map to see the item’s last known location. Trying to find your phone? Tile also has a desktop app that you can access in case your phone is the one that’s missing.

This lock gives you peace of mind whenever you need to be away from your laptop for a moment to order a cup of coffee and greet a colleague.
