Apple’s Find me Tech is entering more products, including a backpack from Targas. Cypress Hero Backpack has a built-in location tracker that can help its rightful owner find it. Find my network If it is missing. Conversely, if you place your iPhone in the wrong place, you can press a backpack button to ping your phone, until you set things up in the Targus app.
Targus Says the tracker is “highly integrated” into the backpack, which will provide some extra anti-theft protection. You can set up geofencing alerts, so if the backpack goes out of a certain area, you’ll get an alert. The tracker also has a built-in sound alert (which is probably as loud as a sound Airtag) Which you can remotely trigger.
The tracker has a replaceable battery that you can top up via USB, though Targus says it will last about a year before recharging. The Targus backpack is designed with durability in mind, as it is made up of 26 recycled water bottles. The Cypress Hero Backpack, which has an IPX3 water resistance rating, should be available sometime in the spring or summer. It costs 150.
On top of that, Targus has announced the DOCK720, a docking station that supports a single 8K monitor or four 4K monitors. The company says it is “the first biometric device and one docking solution” – in other words, it has a fingerprint reader. You can expect an array of ports, including USB-A, USB-C, Ethernet, HDMI, and a combo audio jack. The dock will be available for $ 443 this month.
The Targus docking display, meanwhile, is a 24-inch 1080p LCD monitor with a built-in 2MP webcam, microphone, speakers and USB-C docking station. You can daisy chain it on a second monitor and get both displays from your computer. Docking displays will be shipped in February. The primary monitor costs $ 400 and the secondary monitor (without a webcam) $ 180.
Also, Targus is expanding its lineup of antimicrobial products, which now includes protective sleeves for backpacks, shoulder bags and laptops. The company claims that its DefenseGuard antimicrobial protection effectively inhibits the growth of 99.9% germ-causing microorganisms.
