Chipolo delays trackers for Android’s Find My Device network to July

Published

After a year-long wait, trackers for Android’s Find My Device network are set to start shipping this week. However, if you’ve been waiting to place an order for Chipolo’s Find My Device trackers, the Android-compatible options have been delayed.

Chipolo first announced the One Point and One Card trackers for Android’s Find My Device network last year, later delaying the trackers while waiting on Google to push the network live amid an Apple-fueled pause. But when Google launched the Find My Device network in April, Chipolo announced that its trackers would be available starting on May 27.

That’s still true. For anyone who pre-ordered a tracker last year (before July 2023), Chipolo is shipping the Android Find My Device-compatible trackers starting today. It’s anyone who waited that will see a new delay.

For the past few weeks, Chipolo has been estimating that the “2nd batch” of orders would begin shipping on June 10.

That’s now been pushed back to July.

Chipolo now says on its website that One Point will start shipping in “mid-July” while One Card orders won’t ship until the end of July.

Again, that only applies to new orders. Anyone who pre-ordered previously and made it into the “1st batch” should be getting their devices over the next few weeks.

Chipolo hasn’t provided any reason for the delay, but the world of shipping and product logistics is incredibly complex. We’ve reached out to Chipolo for further details on the delay and any potential changes to who falls into the “1st batch” and “2nd batch,” but the company wasn’t immediately available for comment. We’ll update this post as more information becomes available.

Meanwhile, the other brand launching Find My Device trackers, Pebblebee, estimates that new orders will ship within 2-4 weeks.

Pre-orders for Chipolo’s One Point and One Card are still available starting at $28.
