If you have a knack for losing items like car keys and handbags — or if you’re often targeted by thieves — you need a location-tracking device. And it doesn’t have to be Apple’s AirTag. That’s because you can get something very similar for less with the Momax Tracker Tag.

Momax Tracker Tag: Affordable AirTag alternative
Momax released its Tracker Tag this spring to help you find all your stuff. It’s “just like an AirTag,” the company says, but it costs less.
While a new AirTag retails for $29, you can get a Momax Tracker Tag for about $18 with the deal below. And you can save even more if you buy more than one.
Works with Apple Find My
Like Apple’s AirTag, the Momax Tracker Tag uses Apple’s Find My network — which Apple opened up to third-party accessories in 2021 — to easily turn your items into trackable devices.
You don’t need an app or features you have to pay for. All your location data and history is encrypted and remains anonymous while you use the tracking feature. The tags do not store any information.
Broad, accurate tracking
Thanks to Apple’s powerful Find My network, the Momax tracker can search for your missing item with the help of millions of Apple devices around the world. That means its search range is virtually unlimited.
And if your item falls into a tight spot out of sight, you can also make the tag sound off to help pinpoint the location for you.
Smart notifications, long-lasting battery
In addition to active tracking, Momax’s tracker includes alert features for different situations. Lost Mode pops up a notification to your phone when you leave your item somewhere and go off without it.
Like the AirTag, the Momax Tracker Tag is powered by a standard CR2032 battery. These inexpensive coin-style batteries give the Momax tracker a super-long standby time of approximately one year. And you can easily replace the battery when it runs out of juice.
The tracker tag is small enough to fit anywhere. You can put it in your wallet, bag, luggage or suitcase — or all of the above with multiple tags — as an item finder.
You also can mount it on your bike or car as a vehicle tracker. You can even put it in a collar and use it as a pet locator. It’s ideal for different scenarios.
One CR2032 battery is included with each tracker.
