Did you know that roughly a third of all American households own at least three smartphones? With so many gadgets and gizmos we’re lugging around each day, we’re bound to misplace some. Whether it’s your keys, your phone, your remote, or even your wallet, having to waste time turning your apartment upside down just to find what you’re looking for can be a hassle. Fortunately, this teeny tiny tracker sticks to your gadgets so you can keep tabs on them without actually having to keep tabs.
The Tile Sticker is an incredibly small Bluetooth tracker that sticks to virtually anything, from rugged bike frames to remote controls and more. The battery itself sports a shelf life of up to three years, and the WiFi range covers up to an impressive 150-foot radius.
You can use your smartphone to make the sticker ring to help you locate your belongings. And for when you can’t find your phone (hey, it happens!), you can use your Tile Sticker to make your phone ring. You can even download the Tile app to help keep track of your Tile’s every movement, so if you happen to misplace it (which is quite possible—it’s insanely tiny), you can see where you last had it.
Now, when we say you can stick it on basically anything, we mean it. Because the Tile is 100 percent waterproof, it’s able to withstand both occasional sprinkles and heavy downpours. Place it on your bike to help keep tabs on where you last locked it, or slap it on your car keys to make sure you don’t lose them again. While the original Tile was a useful keychain and tracker, it was a bit expensive and required something to hook onto. The Tile Sticker is an improvement in all regards, both in price and versatility.
Have an expensive camera you’re worried about toting around on your next vacation? Simply place the Tile on it and keep tabs of its every movement. And for all you readers who are always misplacing the remote, you can slap one on there, too.
You can even share your Tiles with friends and family by granting people access to the app. But perhaps the coolest feature of all is the ability to sync it to your voice-activated assistant. With so many features and options available, there’s really no shortage of uses.
