Tired of not being able to find your misplaced activity tracker? You can now use Tile’s finding technology to keep track of it via an easy-to-use app on your phone or tablet.
Tile and Fitbit are teaming up to make sure you never lose your Fitbit Inspire 2. Rolling out over the next week, Tile’s Bluetooth-finding technology is coming to Inspire 2.
“We’ve partnered with Fitbit to integrate our powerful finding technology directly into the Inspire 2 you know and love. Starting March 22nd, both new and existing Fitbit Inspire 2 users will be able to track their device with Tile, in the free Tile app,” Tile said on its website.
If you lose your Inspire 2 somewhere nearby, like at your house, just open the Tile mobile app and tap the “Find” button to make your device vibrate so you can easily find it. Or, try using the Proximity Meter in the Tile app to guide you to it visually. And if your Inspire 2 is lost and far away, like maybe you left it at the gym, then you can use the map in your Tile mobile app to see the location of the last place you had it with you.
If you return to the last place you had it and it’s still not there, you can take advantage of Tile’s global network of users to help you track it down. The Tile Network spans 195 countries and locates up to six million misplaced items every single day, reports Tile.
If it’s your phone--not your Inspire 2 that you’ve misplaced, it’s easy to use the Tile feature on your Fitbit device to make your phone ring loudly from wherever it’s hiding. Simply open the Tile app from your Fitbit Inspire 2 and tap “Find my phone.” If your phone is connected and within Bluetooth range, it will start to vibrate and ring, even if it’s been set to silent!
Fitbit Inspire 2 users can also sign up for Tile Premium to get smart alerts and other premium content at a price of $2.99 per month or $29.99 per year.
