Easily attach to keychains

Simply attach the small, discreet and useful Tile RT-13001 Mate Bluetooth Tracker to an item and locate it quickly and easily with Bluetooth tracking. You could also use the adhesives (sold separately) to stick to flat surfaces, such as a laptop.

Use it with your keys, wallet and other treasured, useful, or easily misplaced items so you don't lose them in future.

Find your phone

Lost your smartphone? Press the Tile button to ring it loudly, even when it's on silent mode, so you can track it down.

Using the map you can see its last known location to search there first, or send a lock-screen message in case someone finds it for you.

Enlist help

The growing Tile community can help you find your missing item. When a Tile user approaches, the app notifies of the last-known location. With other users on the case you could find your important belongings in no time.

A full year of use

The Tile Mate features non-rechargeable batteries which will last a year, after which you can replace your old Tiles with new ones for a special community member price.

With a sealed, water-resistant case, the Tile can also stand up to the rigours and stresses of daily life. The battery is sealed away from children and pets, while the Tile cannot be disabled if it falls into the wrong hands. This gives you added peace of mind, knowing that you can use the gadget confidently and continuously.

A few months back, I lost my keys in the car. I'd got to a job site, jumped out, wnet to the boot, and put on my PPE - boots, coveralls, glasses, gloves, hard hat. I grabbed my toolbags for the day, and went to lock the car. No keys. I Searched everywhere. No luck. I have a habit of putting my keys on top of my toolbag when I'm putting PPE on, so I emptied the boot of all the tools, ppe, spares. Twice. No luck. After a whole hour of lookingin/ around the car/toolbags, I found the keys. They were in my back pocket. After the job I went straight round to the nearest shop that sold these (Halfords), and bought one.
Now I have little faith in the crowd based network finding my keys if I lose them 'properly'. As others have poined out, someone else needs to have the app, and Location Services running to aid me, but that's not why I bought one.

Most of the time if others are like me, I 'lose' my keys in a known area - usually the house. With a Tile on my keys, I can find them in seconds. Others will say, "get into the habit of putting your keys in the same place every time you don't need them". This is good advice, my keys usually live in a box near the front door.

Except when they're not. This helps for those times when they're not where they're supposed to be. As long as I'm within range of the tile, 45 meters in the case of the Mate, I can find it.

The other function that I have had more use out of, is the Tile can find your phone. This may be a foreign concept to many people today, but I don't always have my mobile permanently on my person. In fact sometimes there may be several tens of minutes where I haven't looked at it. Yes, strange and unusual behaviour, I think you'll agree. So, several times I have put my phone down and can't remember where. This isn't a problem as pressing the button on the Tile rings the phone, even on Silent.

I have yet to lose track of both my phone, and my keys. This could be a problem when it inevitably happens, but it isn't. With the app, I can share the Tile with another user. e.g. the wife (also my work phone). Now she can find the keys for me using the app. Or she could ring my phone, then I use my phone to find my keys. Either way, I find my 'lost' items.

For me, Tile is useful.

These are sh!te what they don't tell you is if you loose something without anything bluetooth in the area its lost forever. Also if someone passes your lost keys/dog etc it'll only work if they have the tyle app installed
Neither can you find your phone unless you’ve got (battery draining) location services on!
Apparently none available within 100miles of the Cramlington store.

I’m pretty sure they do tell you that lol.
Tesco's version are £2.50 at the moment, I picked up two yesterday.
I have it, but hey, it only lasts a year

change it every year I don't find it very practical
Bear in mind after 1 year when the battery runs out, it becomes useless as the battery isn't replaceable. More landfill
I thought the new ones had a replaceable button battery?

If you read the text, it says "The Tile Mate features non-rechargeable batteries which will last a year, after which you can replace your old Tiles with new ones for a special community member price."

other option is to use them as tiles...
These ones have a replaceable battery. Check the video on the website - it clearly shows the battery. Good price. CostCo sometimes have them on offer at 4 for £30 but their usual price is 4 for £42.

I never click links from HUKD, no referral money from me!

Or you should be able to figure out that a Bluetooth device will need something that can pick up the bt signal to be any use.

It's the 'growing community' but that worries me. Bought a load of stuff down the years that required other users to make them truly useful. Pretty much never take off with Joe blogs unless there's a Crapple© logo on it.
Give to a kid and let tile users track them down....hmmm. This is a total load of rubbish.
Zero stock
Sure I've seen or something similar in Poundland \ Poundstretcher recently.

But they do tell you this, what did you expect? A GPS tracker this size with a battery that lasts a year!
