Bluesmart, the world’s first smart luggage brand, has launched preorders for its fully revamped and vastly improved Series 2 line. With a carry-on, checked bag, laptop bag and passport case, the four-piece collection syncs to an updated Bluesmart app that boasts location tracking and digital remote locking, and which stores up-to-the-minute flight and departure gate information.
The Cabin carry-on ($275) and larger Check bag ($325) are built from three-layer German Makrolon polycarbonate (not unlike what Away or Raden use) and feature 360-degree hubless wheels, plus compression straps and hidden pockets on the inside. The Check bag has built-in weight sensors that, through the Bluesmart app, sync with individual airline regulations to alert you of any overweight fees, and both suitcases offer built-in 3G and GPS tracking.
The Bluesmart Series 2 line is available for pre-order through Indiegogo now, with early bird discounts of up to 60% off. Items are expected to ship by September.
