According to Tile you’ll never lose a thing with its new Tile Pro Bluetooth trackers WITH replaceable batteries. Here John puts it through the test.
If you’re like me and come Christmas everything is everywhere in your home locating the most used products such as car keys can be time consuming, frustrating and sometimes a little warring so when Tile Pro came whipping through I was genuinely intrigued to see how this would work.
Firstly Tile physically attaches to any item and pairs with an iOS or Android device via Bluetooth to monitor its location – the set up is basic and easy to get going, simply download and open the free app, tap the “+” and follow the activation instructions.
The design itself has a dark exterior, with metal frame wrapping around the cover. It is durable, unique and will attach to your key ring well without being bulky or too heavy.
Once activated with my phone, I sat my set of keys away tapped the centre button and stood by for the Tile Pro to find my keys. I could already hear the sound which is very loud and easily located my keys. You can also see on your device if you’re getting closer to the lost product.
My highlight of Tile is that the location of the gadgets is picked up by other people running the Tile app. This is called Community Find, so if you drop your keys at a shopping centre or other public places, there’s a chance another ‘Tiler’ will walk past and their app will record your Tile’s location.
With a 300-ft range and loud enough to hear above crowds I’ll not be going anywhere without my Tile Pro especially as Christmas approaches and I become far busier.”
Tile Pro is available to buy for £30.00 at thetileapp.com store.
