It is May 27, and as Chipolo and Pebblebee both told us, their Google-compatible Airtag alternatives are shipping today. The two Chipolo Bluetooth trackers were the first to reach my home today, so I’m focusing on them in this hands-on, but you can check our guide to learn more about the differences between Chipolo and Pebblebee’s trackers. The two should behave very similarly.

Also, keep in mind this is a very quick and raw first impression from setup to available options. I haven’t had time to “lose” these trackers in the wild and try to find them just yet. I’ll be reviewing them extensively and comparing them with Pebblebee’s trackers, Apple’s Airtags, and Samsung’s Galaxy SmartTag 2 later.
