Tack One, a startup based in Singapore, is dedicated to providing peace of mind and safety for your loved ones with the help of AI-powered location technology. And now, at the 2024 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the company has unveiled its latest innovation, the Tack GPS Plus, an upgraded version of its GPS device for children and seniors.
In 2021, Tack One launched its original GPS tracker, aiming to tackle two common issues in the market: short battery life and high tracking service costs. The company’s solution was a battery that could last up to 30 days on a single charge, and a subscription plan starting at just $2.95 per month for a two-year plan.
The new Tack GPS Plus, priced at $79, is a compact device that utilizes a variety of technologies, including GPS, Wi-Fi, IoT mobile networks, and AI, as well as smart sensors specifically designed for low-power devices.
One notable addition to the Tack GPS Plus is the patent-pending indoor elevation finder feature, which incorporates intelligent sensors and algorithms. This feature enables users to locate missing children, seniors, patients, pets, or valuables in multi-story buildings, reducing search time in high-rise cities by providing both vertical distance and geographical coordinates.
The Tack GPS Plus has a wide range of applications for parents, caregivers, pet owners, and more. The demand for location technology continues to rise in various areas, such as caring for patients with chronic conditions like Alzheimer’s, personal and family security, asset protection, and even disaster prevention.
In conjunction with the Tack GPS Plus, Tack One has also released a new mobile app, OurSphere, which allows users to monitor multiple Tack devices. One of the app’s standout features is the ability for users to share real-time location information with other app users, even if they do not have a Tack device. This is especially convenient for families or businesses. Additionally, enterprise users managing a large number of Tack devices can access a web dashboard feature through the app. OurSphere will be available for download in mid-January, and existing Tack GPS users will receive a free update to the new app.
Tack GPS Plus follows the release of Tack One’s second product, the Tack EVO FloodFinder, a palm-sized device that detects floods autonomously. According to Tack One’s co-founder and COO Eric Yeo, this device is intended for corporate and government agency use in disaster response, environmental and water management. Currently available in Thailand and Singapore, the startup plans to expand its service to over 120 countries while maintaining affordable subscription rates. Yeo mentioned that the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Australia, Japan, Taiwan, and Southeast Asian countries are the company’s primary focus for launch.
Established in 2020 by CEO Justin Zhang, COO Eric Yeo, and CCO Shane Chiang, Tack One has raised $300,000 in seed funding since its inception.
Tack GPS Plus is now available for purchase on the company’s official website and will be available on Amazon, Lazada, and Shopee around mid-January. Subscription plans include $3.95 per month for a one-year plan and $4.95 per month for a month-to-month plan.
