It can operate for up to six months on a full battery and can be recharged via simple USB cable. Customers use the company's LV Pass smartphone app to pair with the tracker, which slides into a dedicated pocket in Louis Vuitton luggage. The Echo automatically switches to Airplane Mode in flight; After landing, customers can check the app for their bag's location and see if it was opened in the interim.

However, One Direction star Louis was unimpressed by those on the bill, tweeting on Wednesday: "Is it my imagination Just seen the Coachella line up . Where the f**k are all the bands !? It’s a festival !?" One fan replied that Louis should check out festivals in the Netherlands, writing: "Since you’re in the netherlands a lot you should check out some festivals here cause they’ve had good lineups the past few years." "Good to know ! I’ll have a look,” the singer responded. Seattle-based solo artist Perfume Genius is another artist to make the Coachella line-up.
