Are you looking for a gift for the man who has it all – but can’t seem to keep track of it? I’m talking about our loved ones that constantly lose their keys, wallet, and phone. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could help them keep tabs on their items? (Aside from saying, “Your keys are over here!!”) Well, now you can, thanks to Tile!
Tile is a simple, yet ingenious solution to this very common problem. These small, lightweight Bluetooth trackers affix to your items and sync to a corresponding app on your phone. I received the Tile Combo Pack, which includes 4 Tiles: A set of two Tile Mate, which hook onto your keychain, and two Tile Slim, designed to slip into your wallet or purse. When lost, simply open the app and, if your items are in a 100-foot radius, it will play a loud jingle so that you can locate your things quickly. Alternatively, if you have your keys but lose your phone instead, you can double press your Tile to make the phone ring.
The Tile app has several other handy features: If you leave it running in the background, it will automatically remember the last time and location that you had your item with you and display it on a map. And if you truly lose your item – more than just “Oh, it was in the couch cushions!” – you can select for the app to notify you when your item is found. If another Tile user happens to pass by your item, you will be automatically, anonymously notified of its most recent location. You can click here to read more about how the Tile system works.
I think this is so brilliant! I cannot wait to surprise Jai with this for Christmas to help with his daily keys-phone-wallet hunt. And Tile isn’t just a sanity saver for those who misplace keys frequently; this product would also be great for travelers to tuck into luggage while on the go, and for busy moms to stick into diaper bags and on the items that kids lose constantly, like lunchboxes, backpacks and stuffed animals. It could also be attached to critical health items, such as EpiPens. Watch my video below for more on Tile:
