Tile Style Pro Series 4 Pack with Replaceable Battery Bluetooth (2 x Black, 2 x White) £67.49 (£16.87 each) delivered @ John Lewis & Partners

Tile Pro is the most powerful tracker as it'll find your keys, handbag or any other item up to 200 feet using your smartphone, tablet or smartwatch. You can also use it to locate your lost devices.

New and improved design
The Pro model is waterproof up to 1.5 meters deep for 30 minutes to provide full protection no matter the weather and it has a 98 decibel melody, so it’s easy to detect.

How it works
  • Attachment: The Tile's compact, lightweight and innovative design means you can easily attach it to most objects that you're worried you might lose. For example, it easily hooks onto your house or car keys, but can also be attached to your laptop, bike or handbag, even your suitcase.

  • Detection: Once your smartphone is within 200-foot Bluetooth signal of the Tile it'll start the hunt. As you get closer to the lost object the signal will get stronger and the distinctive melody (up to 98 decibels) of the Tile can be heard.
Use Tile to Find Your Phone
On those days you can't find your phone you can use the Tile to locate it. Just press your Tile twice to make your phone ring (even if it's on silent) as long as it's within 200-foot Bluetooth range.

Easy app
The app is simple to set up and straightforward to use. It'll automatically record the last time and place you had your missing item, so you can pinpoint it on a map. It also lets you use other devices to sign in to your Tile app and enables you to reach out to the wider Tile Community to find your missing possessions.

Durable design
The Tile is built to last around 1 year is water resistant (IP68) to prevent it from damaging when caught in the rain or drops in water (up to 1.5m for 30 mins).

Compatible with
  • Android 6.0 or newer
  • iOS 10 or newer
  • Bluetooth 4.0 or later

Yes bluetooth does need to be on or any other person running the app on their smartphone with bluetooth on. I have one on my 11yr olds house keys, one sewn into his schoolbag, one hidden in my keyless entry car, one in my DJI Mavic pro.
I bought the 4 pack(older mate version) from Amazon Warehouse deals for £34. One tile had been registered but chatting through the tile app they sent me a new one like these in the deal. I live in the countryside at it only really works at home when the school bus passes through a built up area. All the devices running the app can be found also, once you have installed the app.They aren't perfect but I did pin down my sons keys in the school changing rooms one weekend when he couldn't find them.

I do subscribe to the premium, which at first I thought was a waste of money but I have used the features quite a lot. Until the batteries die in mine I will stick with them.

I also bought one for an elderly relative who has dementia. Sewn into his coat (he doesn't know it's there) handy for finding him when he gets lost

(at least to within 200 feet or 60m)Is that 60m range reduced if there are walls in the way??I'm still a bit confused about using it for cars / bikes and the like if this is the case??


The way it works is that it isn't just reliant on your phone. If the Tile can be seen by ANY Tile User's device, you will see a "Last Known Location" of your registered Tile.

So if your car was stolen and driven abroad (and assuming the thief doesn't discover the Tile), and a tourist/local with the App walked nearby the car in 6 months' time. You'd get a notification that your device had been found and a graphic of where and when the device was last seen.

As well as in my car, Day-to-Day I have them on my keys, in my wallet, in my insulin bag (I'm Type 1 Diabetic) with warnings to my phone if I leave any of those things behind (a Premium feature)

The Tiles can be made to make a loud noise from your phone, it's really useful for finding things around the house. You can also click on any Tile to force your phone to ring on Maximum volume (really useful for when it's fallen behind the sofa).

Hope that helps! I find them incredibly useful but they are one of those things that only really show their true value when you really need them.

You could just check the phones locate every now & than, just like testing a fire alarm battery.

Great idea - I wonder if this is legal, though? Breach of right to privacy, perhaps?
Can this trigger an alarm when going out of range?
I've mentioned before on here, but my wife scoffed when I first bought these. Since then she has lost her house keys and car keys on multiple occasions and we've found them again due to the Tiles.

Yes you can activate smart alerts, although it doesn't work for single tiles. I have a lasting power of Attorney for my relative, he isn't going to be taking me to court over privacy issues, the same as my 11yr old who I wan't to protect equally, I think you may be in a sticky situation if you were using it for other reasons, for example catching out your cheating partner or stalking an actress/actor

Excellent find. Thank you VFX9
Ordered. Thanks. I will use 2 to track my bikes. Plan is to put them inside the top tube by removing the steerer. They are both carbon fibre so the signal should pass through. A bit of extra piece of mind

Hardly his fault if it's a crap design decision. Of course it should notify the user of a low battery. Are we supposed to start setting up calendar invites for replacing batteries now?
Anyone comment on this compared to the 'Nut' for daily use.

The Nut's have worked okay, but overall a bit flaky it seems.

Those battery level checks usually drain the battery quicker and require extra hardware, thus extra cost.

Each and every keyfinder i've had hasn't ever shown me the battery level. So i don't recognize this argument. I guess if these devices typically had battery level indicators, and this particular one didn't, i would understand your complaint.

What would make more sense is if you posted that suggestion on their own forums as a feature request.

Whilst there, maybe ask if they would also remove bluetooth and instead add GPS so i can locate it from anywhere, and perhaps a solar panel

As this goes, it ain't perfect but it clearly states 12 months between battery changes, seems simple enough to me.

So in summary, I can critique it? Thanks

Do you often pay 70 quid on key finders? May be easier to just cut some spare keys tbh.
I really don't get these as I have the Tile Mate version and they are pretty useless unless they are within bluetooth range of my phone. If I lose things at home then I will eventually find them with or without this gimmick. It is for when I lose stuff outside and want to know where they are that is important for me but this device will not be of any help.

You can critique what you like, forums are also for debate. Which is what we're doing right?

£70? i bought something similar for £20. I think this price is for 4 of these.

My car key would cost over £100 to replace, my storage locker key another £50

It's not just about the loss, security is also a concern

I got one of these for Christmas and the battery already died a few weeks ago. It did beep a bit beforehand so that was it possibly warning me about low battery. It takes those button cell lithium batteries so I'll replace it and hopefully it'll last a bit longer next time.

That isn't the sole function of these tiles, they work well for me in different situations.
1. 11yr old son catching the school bus from the lane outside my house
2. Fixed to a drone as a failsafe
3. In my car which has keyless entry and worries me to hell that someone can steal it from my driveway with a relay box
4. Warning that I have left home without my keys or phone.
5. Safeguarding an elderly relative with dementia

Yeah i think it beeps, these guys expect some battery level indicator built in the app, not realising/appreciating it would need a dedicated chip just for that.. and all for £16.87 a piece.... i really don't know why i bother conversing with some on here, it's like pulling teeth.
Thanks, just ordered
Wow, cheaper than the re-tile “discount”

shame the singles are oos, £17.99 each
Thanks OP. Excellent deal. Have some heat!

it uses shared gps from the mobile app on your phone and of other people with the app who happen to go near your device, and 'supposedly' remembers the last known found location on their servers. Which works unless it's been moved since then.

With full GPS this device would be much larger, and use more power. Not to mention 5 times the price.

I suppose it makes sense but in practice probably it doesn't work so well. It would work with huge customer base I guess?
I'm the worst for putting things down and then forgetting where they are.
I have one on my keys and one in my wallet.


And if you misplace your phone but have a tile with you, you can press the tile and it will activate a ringer on your phone!
