Do you have the habit of forgetting your phone, keys or wallet sometimes? You’re not the only one. Forgetting your belongings can be accidental or just out of habit, wherein you tend to scatter around your things, eventually leading to you either misplacing or losing them. With millions of adults losing out on their valuables and kids misplacing their favorite toys and accessories, Mike Farley and Nick Evans came up with a solution called ‘Tile’.
Tile is a personal tracking device for those who need a reminder of their personal belongings. How this works is if you lose track or misplace one of your valuables connected to a Tile tracking device, you can be assured of getting it back wherever it is.
By using Bluetooth and the Tile Companion app on your smartphone, Tile will help you locate your items. When you reach the location and are close enough to the item detected by the app, the device starts beeping so you can hear where exactly it is.
Tile has recently launched its Mate Bluetooth tracker in the Indian market. On the back of the device, there’s a loudspeaker and it also shows the last location of the lost item using maps.
The popular Bluetooth tracking system introduced its other prime products to the Indian market like Tile Sticker, Tile Slim and Tile Pro for a much better and simplified use.
The Tile Sticker is a tiny waterproof tracker, which can be stuck onto things due to the adhesive back. The Tile Sticker has a battery life of around 3-years and has a range of around 46m. It can be attached to most metal and plastic materials, such as phones and outdoor gear.
The Tile Slim has a slimmer shape, resembling a credit card, which makes it easier to place it in things such as a wallet or a luggage tag. It’s said to have a subtle shape and size but doesn’t compromise on the range, which is about 61 m.
The Tile Pro has a range of about 122m and features a replaceable CR2032 battery, which is good for about a year’s worth of usage. It’s water-resistant, but not completely waterproof, like the other two variants.
It’s available in two colours – black and white.All the products are available on Amazon where the Tile Sticker is available as a pack of two, for a price of Rs 3,999 and as a pack of four, for a price of Rs 7,999. The Tile Slim comes down to Rs 2,999 and the Tile Pro for Rs 3,999. Coming to the latest Tile Mate, it’s priced at Rs 2,499 and a pack of four costs Rs 7,999.
