This booomtag® has been specifically engineered to cater to the needs of carbon and metal surfaces. To ensure seamless usage, we have incorporated an additional isolation layer which effectively prevents any signal interference with these surfaces.
Very happy with the product
Got the Booomtag in case I lose my kiteboard or snowboard. The Booomtag allows the finder to contact me about my lost item. Furthermore, it is also great for finding important info on medical necessity. And it looks good too.
Convenient to apply to your kiteboard. Is beautiful too. If you lose the board and are found, the app is useful for finding the owner.
Really useful for kiting and all the rest of expensive gear 👌
Love the product! It's useful, and already got 1 of my lost products back :)
An integrated booomtag will make your lost - or stolen gear hard to sell, because ownership cannot be transferred without your consent. And showing up with a new piece of equipment which is marked as ‘lost’ is not cool.
We all own lots of expensive gear. Our gear gets lost in the currents or in powder and “accidentally switched” or taken from the apres-ski bar. And sometimes after a great session we are so stoked that we forget stuff and leave it in the parking lot.

What is NFC?
Have you ever wondered what makes tap-and-go services like Apple Pay, Android Pay and Amiibo work? As much as it seems like pure magic, it isn't. So what is it exactly? Simply put, it's a method of wireless data transfer called NFC (Near field communication) that detects and then enables technology in close proximity to communicate without the need for an internet connection. It's easy, fast and works automagically.
How does NFC work?
The tech involved is deceptively simple: evolved from radio frequency identification (RFID) tech, an NFC chip operates as one part of a wireless link. Once it's activated by another chip, small amounts of data between the two devices can be transferred when held a few centimeters from each other. No pairing code is necessary to link up and because it uses chips that run on very low amounts of power (or passively, using even less), it's much more power-efficient than other wireless communication types.
How does NFC works on your device?
All iPhones require iOS 13.0 or later.
Compatible with iPhone 7 and up.
iPhone NFC readers are found on the front of the devices. Place the device close tot the booomtag® with the top of the screen.
Samsung have some great supporting information about the location of the various NFC detection areas which can be found here:
Sony Xperia devices
Sony Xperia devices have a wireless technology range of one centimetre, so your TravelMaster smartcard must be held close to your smart device.
The NFC detection area is located on the front of the device. Hold your device close to another device or an NFC reader so that the NFC detection areas touch.
NFC readers contain an N-Mark on the back the official symbol indicating that the device is NFC-enabled.

Vodafone has a support article on the Huawei P8 Lite and how to enable NFC:
Moto G Play: To use NFC technology on your phone, your phone must be within approximately 0.78 in. (2 cm) of the NFC-enabled smartphone, and smartcard.
Google Pixel Devices
Google have some support information for NFC users which provides hardware diagrams to show customers where the NFC reader is on their Pixel and Nexus devices.
