Review: Tile Mate & Tile Pro

Tile 

Tile is the ideal solution for the days when your phone or keys seemed to have disappeared off the face of the earth. Tile is a small, Bluetooth tracker. The app is simple to use and can locate any item, including your phone, keys or even your wallet in just a few seconds. Now you can spend less time looking for misplaced items and get to the task at hand faster.

Tile is a white (or black) and square-shaped gadget that will help you find virtually anything you are looking for. The original Tile was only available for iOS; however, the second-generation offering also works with Android devices. It also has a few additional features that boost its overall usefulness.

Tile mate

The actual Tile Mate weighs only 7g and measure 35mm x 35mm x 6.2mm. A small keychain hole is located in the left, upper corner and the Tile logo is on the front surface. The Tile on top of the devices is actually a hidden button that allows you to pair it with the phone of your choice. It will work with any Bluetooth 4.0 devices that run Android 4.4 or above and iOS 7 or above.

Tile Mate Features:

  • The small Bluetooth tracker is simple to use.
  • Ability to use as a phone or key finder, or anything else you don’t want to lose track of (like if your kids run around the house and you want to find them 🙂 )
  • Simply attach the device to any item and sound it by using the app on your phone.
  • Press the Tile to make the lost phone ring – even when it is on silent.
  • Benefit from a Bluetooth range of up to 150ft.
  • Easily hear the tone or ring thanks to the 90-decibel tune
  • Comes in weight/grey.

What’s Unique About the Tile Pro?

There are several unique features of the all new Tile Pro. One of the most appealing factors is the fact you don’t have to worry about replacing the battery or charging it for up to a year. This is a hassle free experience for up to 12 months, which means you don’t have to worry about losing your necessary items again. Furthermore the bluetooth range on the tile pro is 300ft instead of 150ft on the Tile mate.

Another unique feature is the fact that the Tile Pro has been fitted with upgrades that make it more appealing for more users. For example, it:

  • Works with both Android and iOS devices.
  • Features a louder tone than the Tile mate
  • Waterproof design.
  • Comes in different colors.

Potential Drawbacks

While the Tile devices ARE sleek IN design, there is still a few drawbacks that you should be aware of.  Also, while you can attach the Tile to many objects, it is specifically designed for keyrings and you may find it difficult to attach to other items. If you are out of range of the Bluetooth reach, the Tile will not work, as well. So if you want a real GPS tracker, you should look at different devices like the Americaloc GL300W.

Conclusion

Tile definitely accomplishes its main objective, which is to help you find the item you have lost in an efficient and quickly manner. While it does not offer notifications like some of the other devices available, it only costs half the price. The Tile will also remain connected to the phone you choose allowing you to easily find any device you connect it to. This makes it more than worth the low price you pay.
