When you’re in a hurry to get out the door, there’s nothing worse than finding yourself in a frenzied search for your keys, phone, or wallet. Thanks to the geniuses who created Tile Trackers, though, you’ll never have to miss your ride or be late to appointments again just because of absentmindedness.
Just attach these slim Bluetooth devices to your most important items, then sync them up to a smartphone app. They’ll help you find your missing stuff instantly—and if you’ve lost your actual smartphone, just press a button and it will activate a ring tone to locate it.
Meet some of the life-changing devices that are about to help you get your act together in a major way.
Download the Tile app, sync it up to the Tile Mate 2020—20 percent off for a one-pack—then clip the palm-sized gadget to your key ring, purse or any other everyday item. Then rest easy knowing that if you misplace that item, you can simply log into the app and prompt it to sound a (pretty loud) alarm as long as you’re within 200 feet of Bluetooth range. But what if you lose the Tile Mate itself, you ask? An entire, fully anonymous Tile Tracker community is on call to help—these users all have the ability to send location updates to your phone. There’s strength in numbers!
“I normally don't write reviews for products, but the tile is too fantastic not to yell it from the roof tops!,” wrote one self-professed “scatterbrain.” “I am always losing my keys or my phone and with the tile it makes it so easy to find my keys in a flash or find my phone.. I am thinking about attaching them to everything in my house!”
Looking for something a little more powerful? The Tile Pro (2020) does everything the Tile Mate can do—locate all your lost items in a jiffy, ring your phone, recruit the Tile Tracker community to lend a hand remotely—but this baby works with double the range of the Mate. That’s right—the Pro can locate any items within 400 feet. Right now, a Tile Pro (2020) four-pack is now 16 percent off.
“I LOVE THIS. Easy set up, easier to use. I can find my phone even when it is on silent, which is usually is. That is genius!,” wrote an excited shopper. “It has saved me so many times...Unfortunately it makes it really easy for me to continue being irresponsible and forgetful... but at least I won’t be late for work!”
These tiny Bluetooth trackers have an adhesive strip on its bottom that you can then attach on nearly any small object. In fact, Tile partnered with 3M, the makers of Post-it notes and Scotch tape to develop the Tile Sticker to make sure it sticks to just about any surface.
The Tile Sticker is roughly the size of a quarter, but it’s pretty mighty with a Bluetooth range of 150 feet. Here’s how it works: Simply stick one on any small object like a tablet, skateboard, water bottle or Apple AirPods case and sync it to the Tile mobile app on your smartphone. And that’s it!
Now whenever that item goes missing, you can use the smartphone app to track it down. The Tile Sticker will emit a loud chime to alert you to where the object is in your home or car. Meanwhile, if you ever lose your smartphone, the Tile device will work in reverse to activate your ringtone—even if the phone is on silent!
Here it is, ladies and gentlemen: The whole kit and caboodle. Take the utmost advantage of Amazon’s amazing Tile Tracker sale with this all-in-one essentials bundle that includes a Tile Mate, Tile Slim, and two Tile Stickers: tiny Tile Trackers with adhesive backs that stick to anything from your camera and smartphone to your remote control. The whole thing is 15 percent off.
“Man, back in the day, I coulda used these to stick on my kids,” wrote one creative customer. “ One keeps my Apple TV remote findable when it hides in the couch. Another is attached to the bottom of a small generator to help it ‘stay’ home...If you ever have anything you consistently lose, get yourself some of these and stop wasting time tearing the house and car apart.”
