Bluesmart, Creator of World's First Connected Carry-On, Partners With eBags.com

Partnership Brings Innovative Luggage to Travelers in Time for the Holidays

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 23, 2015) - Bluesmart, creator of the world's first smart, connected luggage, today announces a retail partnership with eBags.com, a loved and trusted online destination for bags and all things travel. The partnership with eBags will bring Bluesmart's innovative new carry-on to customers nationwide just in time for the holiday season.

The Bluesmart Carry-on is the first and only smart luggage on the market that features worldwide location tracking enabled by GPS and 3G technologies, remote digital locking, two USB chargers with 10,000 mAh capacity (enough to charge an iPhone six times), and a built-in weight sensor to ensure the suitcase is within airline limits. The luggage also fits all U.S. airline size constraints and meets Transportation Security Administration criteria, making it the perfect gift for that expert traveler in your life.

"We are very excited to partner with eBags.com, a company that, from its inception, has reinvented the way people shop for the best luggage online," said Bluesmart co-founder and president, Tomi Pierucci. "The team at eBags.com understands where the industry is headed, and that's why they see the value in bringing Bluesmart's smart and connected luggage to the market quickly."

Bluesmart was created by a group of seasoned entrepreneurs, designers and engineers who encountered several problems with their luggage while traveling internationally and decided to partner to develop the world's first smart luggage. The result of this collaboration is a first-of-its-kind, lightweight, durable, water- and scratch-resistant suitcase that is intelligent, fashionable and functional. 

"eBags.com is always looking for the best travel solutions and we found it in the Bluesmart connected carry-on," said Peter Cobb, co-founder and executive vice president at eBags.com. "The product Bluesmart has created is perfect for the traveler who demands the best."

The Bluesmart Carry-on is available at eBags.com on a dedicated landing page and is available for shipping before the holidays.
