Of course, all of the usual shills get their hands on some first. So cringeworthy.

I was hoping there would be an AR overlay through the rear camera; the directional component is nice, but I think there is a missed opportunity here with using AR.

Do I really need an advanced piece of technology to remember where I left my backpack? Really?
No but if you travel and your airline loses your luggage, a tracker could come in handy when Delta gives you the run around.

Is it easy for a thief to find your bag with airtag and reset it for his/her personal use? So you loose both bag and airTag...oops
No, it is tied to original owner's AppleID, like an IOS device, and cannot be reset without the AppleID password nor can it be tracked by someone else other than its owner.

However, the thief can throw away the Airtag and walk away with the stolen goods no longer being tracked.
