My project partner was able to press the “Find my Keys” button on his phone and within 5 seconds my bracelet lit up with the beating heart effect from 300 miles away. Total cost of the project came out to about 20 bucks. This was basically just the price of the Tile. I used a old broken watch’s band for the bracelet, and the LED is less than a dollar if you don’t already have one laying around.
