Tile Is Getting An Upgrade
We all have our moments. We get up to walk out the door and leave our keys on the counter. We get out of our car and walk halfway to our destination, only to realize our phone is back in the car. Or, worse yet, we just leave our purse or our wallet who knows where. You could just glue all those items to your hands, but that would be an impractical way to live. Instead, you just need a better way to track those items.
Tile, the item tracker that’s managed to sell over 10 million trackers since its introduction, has decided to give its trackers an upgrade. They’re now introducing a Pro series including two different devices – a Tile Sport and a Tile Style. Each tracker offers sleeker looks, better components on the inside, and even better waterproof protection for those times when you manage to lose your keys in the fish tank. That happens, right?
So, what exactly makes these tiles different? The new Tile Sport and Tile Style both offer a larger range than the originals, 200 feet compared to the original 100 feet. They also offer a louder ring option, so it won’t be quite as muffled when it’s wedged into the seat cushions of your couch. And, as we said above, better waterproof protection. Now, the tracker can be submerged in water down to 1.5 meters for 30 whole minutes! Although…it’s probably best to just avoid that type of situation if you can help it.
Along with new hardware naturally comes updates to the app. The app will support the ability to change the ringer and show you an improved proximity meter so you can hopefully find your stuff a little easier. There’s even going to be support for Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant! And, as always, the app can continue to rely on the community of other tracker users to help find your lost items if you yourself happen to be out of range.
The new Tile trackers are already available for purchase from Tile as well as several other sites. Both cost $35 for a single tracker or opt for a two-pack for $60.
