Motorola's Moto Tag ready for launch with FCC's sign of approval

In 2017, Motorola launched a smart object tracker called the Moto Tag. Seven years later, the company is gearing up to introduce an upgraded version, seemingly with the same name. The new model has already received a few regulatory certifications, hinting at an imminent launch. The FCC also recently certified it, further supporting the theory.

The FCC clears Motorola’s Moto Tag for launch

The Federal Communications Commission certified the Moto Tag with the model number XT2445-1, which we have seen in other certifications in the past. As usual, the listing doesn’t reveal a massive amount of details about the upcoming smart tracker. However, we got a confirmation that it will feature a standard button watch battery bearing the identifier CR2032.

Most smart trackers use this commonly available lithium battery. This ensures that you won’t have problems finding a replacement battery once the original one drains out (these batteries aren’t rechargeable). The CR2032 battery boasts a rated capacity of 210mAh and a rated voltage of 3V. It may not seem much, but it is big enough to power the tracker for months before you need to replace it.

Of course, the battery life will depend on how often you use the product and the connectivity method. The Moto Tag boasts Bluetooth LE and Ultra Wideband (UWB) connectivity options, with the latter being more power-hungry. It is more effective in finding lost objects, though. You get granular tracking support compared to Bluetooth. It’s nice that Motorola is offering both technologies.

The FCC listing doesn’t reveal anything else about the Moto Tag. There’s no mention of Find My Device support. However, Google recently said that Motorola is preparing a smart tracker with support for its crowd-sourced network that uses Android phones to locate lost objects or trackers. The search giant said the device will debut later this year. This is a massive hint at the Moto Tag being that product.

Motorola has a major launch event scheduled for June 25

Motorola has yet to announce a launch date for the Moto Tag. It hasn’t even teased any such product. However, the firm has a major launch event scheduled for Tuesday, i.e., June 25, in China. It is expected to unveil the Razr 50 series foldables at the event. There is no reason why the Moto Tag won’t debut alongside the new foldables. Thankfully, we won’t have to keep guessing for much longer. Stay tuned for more from Tomorrow’s Motorola event.
