When you’re in a rush to get out the door, there’s nothing worse than finding yourself in a frantic search for your keys, phone, or wallet. Thanks to the geniuses who created Tile trackers, you’ll never miss your commute again or be late for appointments simply because of distraction.
Simply connect these slim Bluetooth devices to your most important things, then sync them with a smartphone app. They will help you find your missing stuff instantly. Plus, there’s a whole bunch for sale on Amazon, including the Slim, the Mate, and even the Sticker. Oh, and they’ll join you in time for the big day.
How it works? Download the Tile app, sync it to the Tile in an empty card slot in your wallet, and throw it in your backpack. Then, rest easy knowing that if you misplace this item, you can simply connect to the app and prompt it to sound a (quite loud) alarm as long as you’re within 250 feet of Bluetooth range. But what if you lose the tile itself, you ask? An entire, completely anonymous Tile Tracker community is on hand to help you – these users all have the ability to send location updates to your phone. Unity is strength !

Another user chimes in, “This is the perfect solution for people who live alone, don’t have a second home phone, and need to locate their cell phone. I misplaced my phone somewhere in the house and I need to locate it. Tapping on any of the key tiles does just that. Easy to install app. I also need to locate my mailbox key often as I have to walk outside to a group of community mailboxes. Usually leaves the key in a jacket pocket, but I can’t remember what I last wore. Fits the bill. Great gift too. Works for me!”
Plus, these pups are water resistant, so there’s no need to worry about them getting battered by rain or scorching conditions at the gym. At this great price, the Tile would make a great gift, or for yourself.
