Sprint this week announced the availability of matchbook-sized device "Tracker and Safe & Found", enabling customers to track just about anything. 

The device can easily attach to vehicles, children’s backpacks, pets, bikes, luggage and more to provide real-time location tracking. Parents of younger children who don’t yet have a wireless device can attach Tracker to their child’s backpack and receive a notification when their kids arrive at school.

Tracker + Safe & Found runs on Sprint’s nationwide 4G LTE network with GPS and a powerful Wi-Fi-assisted location service. Powered by the Safe & Found app, Tracker is one of the industry’s leading location and parental control platforms to provide real-time location tracking. 

Tracker, manufactured by Coolpad, comes with a long-lasting, rechargeable battery, and many other features. It cost $2.50 per month for 24 months, plus an additional $5 per month per Tracker (when on AutoPay) for connected services.

Doug Smith, VP of Product Marketing and Innovation
With our new Tracker + Safe & Found, Sprint helps deliver all of the above. Users can quickly and easily know the location of and keep track of children, pets and virtually anything else they love and care about, all in a single app. It’s a great service that can help families, pet owners, small businesses and more.
