Finders Keepers? Not with Tile!

tile_findI forget things… ALL THE TIME.  For the last 10 years I’ve been blaming it on pregnancy brain, but as my husband recently pointed out, being over 3.5 years out from my last pregnancy, I don’t have much of a leg to stand on with that argument… BUMMER. I’m just facing reality, I’m getting OLD.  With that, I’m definitely forgetful. I misplace things all the time. Things like my keys, my sunglasses, my phone and uber important things like my son’s emergency med kit. Usually things aren’t that far away, but if my husband had a dollar for every time I’ve asked where my keys are, or where’s my phone… or even worse when I’ve gotten to that panicked state where I’m running around frantically with my heart racing… only to realize (a) I’ve left it(my phone) in my car, (b) left it in the fridge (true story with my phone, don’t ask for details) (c) left (keys) in the door lock. My husband could tell you stories of my many momentarily lost items.

When I first learned about mini tracking devices, I was super excited. My husband and I desperately agreed that I needed something to keep track of my most important things. We’ve tried them all and all have fell short of expectations until we discovered Tile Bluetooth Tracker.  Not a new product, but at the time, I had an android phone and it was only available for iOS. I’m super excited to say it’s now available for both iOS and Android, which is awesome.  I do have an iPhone now, but the husband still is very much a loyal android user.

I seriously love the simplicity of TILE.  It’s super easy to set up and use.  The app itself is very intuitive and simple.  It does one thing, keeping track of your things… and it does it well!

tile_skinsLOVE

  • It’s seriously a sleek looking device
  • It’s solidly built, I’m not afraid it’s going to fall apart
  • It’s ring is LOUD and CLEAR at over 90 decibels
  • The familiar map feature is awesome for pinpointing an items last location.
  • By far one of my favorite updates to the 2nd generation TILE is the Shared Tiles feature. It is an amazing feature that lets my Android husband find my linked items even if I am on iOS because sometimes I lose my phone and keys too.
  • The ability to find your phone by pressing TILE… yes losing the very thing that keeps track of my items is something I do ALL the time. Do I sound like a mess?
  • The 2nd generation TILE has a range of 100 feet!
  • It’s water resistant with a rating of IP5
  • Love that you can personalize it with skinit with patterns or even photos.
  • It’s super safe, even when crowd sourcing, it doesn’t share your information with others.

CONS 

  • It’s not thin… in fact it may be one of the thicker tracking devices, but it’s also a love too
  • Maybe it’s just me, but I’d like to share my TILE with more than 1 person… considering how often I lose things.
  • Wish it had a replaceable battery, it’s guaranteed for 1 year only
  • Wish it was waterproof, but no other device is either

THINGS YOU CAN TRACK WITH TILE (A Short List)

  • keys
  • phone
  • purse/backpack
  • med kit
  • camera
  • luggage (airline misplace your luggage? tell them exactly where it is!)
  • dog (perfect collar accessory!)
  • children (attached to a jacket zipper)
