What’s more? You can control your suitcase through your smart phone with their mobile apps. The smart suitcase alerts you when it’s out of radius and you can track it via the build-in GPS through your phone. The suitcase will notify you when it’s overweight helping you to prevent extra baggage charge. The technology of this suitcase brings another device connected to the internet.
