Inside Various Bluetooth Trackers: Batteries, Speakers, and SoCs Examined #IoT #IoTuesday

All About Electronics have some great teardowns of three Bluetooth trackers – they each have unique design elements and features, including transducers vs piezoelectric speakers, common CR2032s vs rechargeable Li-ion batteries, and various System on Chip solutions. The iHere tracker is my favorite looking for that triangle shape with carabiner loop and rechargeable battery implementation, but the piezoelectric speaker on the Tile is a pretty slick solution too. Take a look at them each.

Bluetooth trackers are a new emerging market. There were existing solutions such as proprietary RF pagers and whistle reactive key finders, but with the widespread use of Bluetooth LE, they are starting to gain traction. This Teardown Tuesday is going to be a little different, we are going to look at the insides of 3 different trackers. In this article, the insides of a Tile 2.0, a Nut Smart Tag, and a Nonda iHere will be revealed.
