Is JioTag worth buying? Our JioTag Review Based on its specs

Before we share our quick review of Reliance Jio’s JioTag and what we think of it, here are some pros and cons of JioTag that we think might be useful for you to know.


Pros

Cons

Affordable Price (Rs.749)

Location reliability & accuracy may be a doubt

Offers similar features as that of Apple AirTag which costs almost 4 times as JioTag

No UWB Chip

Comes with a Community Find feature

The case can be opened pretty easily and the device built puts a small doubt of durability

Comes with an inbuilt lanyard cable for accessibility

No IP Rating

A range of 20 to 50 meters (if it provides) would be great

Compatible with both Android & iOS

Comes with an extra battery



As you can see, JioTag by Reliance Jio offers a pretty good deal of features for the price it is currently available at. Even the location accuracy of JioTag isn’t “bad” per se. It does however can be improved we believe.

For the number of features, it offers such as a range of 20 to 50 meters, an inbuilt lanyard cable, Community Find, in-built speakers, a 1-year warranty, and an extra battery, the JioTag is worth buying at its current price of Rs.749 or lesser, we believe.

For indoors or smaller distances or minimal usage, JioTag may be a good deal to buy. But if you do not want to compromise on quality, accuracy, and durability, Apple AirTags may still be a better option for you.

Note that this is our personal opinion and review of JioTags. You may have a different experience or opinion to share which is welcome too in the comments below.

Lastly, JioTags isn’t coming up in the market for the first time. Reliance Jio released JioTag back in 2021 at a price of Rs.699. It is only now that the JioTag launch is official and commercial. Interested buyers can buy the JioTag device from Reliance Jio's official website.
