Tile brings its lost item-tracking service to wearables #WearableWednesday
A new update will let you find your lost Fitbit. It is a logical partnership and interesting use of Tile’s services. It’ll be interesting to see where the lost item finder will branch to next. Via Tech Crunch:
The company’s ability to expand its reach through industry partners may become even more critical to its future in the face of new competition from Apple, and to some extent, Samsung. Apple has been developing its own Tile competitor, AirTags, which the company accidentally disclosed in a YouTube video last year. These will leverage both Bluetooth and newer ultra-wideband technology to more precisely locate lost items. Meanwhile, Samsung’s newest Tile competitor, the Galaxy SmartTag, will also come in an UWB-powered version later this year.
