The company says that the Tile Pro doubles the detection range to 200 feet, and the companion app has a clearer proximity meter created to help you home in on your misplaced items. The new trackers are also waterproof up to 1.5 meters deep for 60 minutes, twice as loud as earlier versions and offer both volume adjustments and new ringtones – great news considering the model I purchased back in 2014 was prohibitively quiet. Tile Sport features a unique tread-like design and dark slate finish with a graphite ring that offers extra durability. The Tile Style is framed with a champagne gold ring and is satin white with a subtly-ridged texture. Tile is one of the more popular brands out there and while their products have been pretty reliable, they’re now releasing a new line of trackers that have better range and alerts.
The new range is accompanied by an updated Tile app, with features specifically designed for the new products.
For the uninitiated, Tile makes little fobs that can be attached to nearly anything and work in conjunction with a mobile app to help you find keys, wallets, your dog, or anything else. First we got Tile, then we got Tile Slim and Tile Mate. “It’s a simple action, but one that has a lasting impact”, said Farley. The system also works in reverse, meaning you can find your phone by pressing the button on a Tile. They can also see the last place they had their item on a map, and if the item has been moved, they can enlist the power of the Tile community to help them find it. As you get closer to your item, more rings will fill in with green to let you know you’re heading in the right direction. If outside of Bluetooth range, Alexa will provide the last known location.
The Tile Pro Sport is available now through JB Hi-Fi at an RRP of $49. You can order yours from the links below.
