Starting this week, your Inspire 2 device can be found using Tile’s Bluetooth finding technology. The partnership marks Tile’s entry into the wearables market and provides both new and existing Inspire 2 users access to Tile’s finding features at no additional cost.
As an existing Inspire 2 user, starting on Tuesday you will be prompted to update your device software in the Fitbit app to add the Tile feature and will then be directed to download the Tile app to activate the finding tool.
All new Inspire 2 devices will also be capable of enabling Tile’s finding technology.
If you misplace your Inspire 2 at home, you can use the Tile app to locate your device. If you’ve misplaced your Inspire 2 and you’re outside of Bluetooth range, you can use the Tile app to view its most recent location or leverage Tile’s global network to find it.
Additionally, if your Inspire 2 is connected via Bluetooth to your phone, you can now use your Inspire 2 to ring your phone – even when it’s on silent.
Tile has been working with other brands like Skull Candy to achieve the same thing. It won’t be long until you can find everything you own using Tile.
For now though, you can find your Tiles and your Smartwatch. Hopefully it is a feature more Fitbits will have soon.
