I have had several different Bluetooth tags on my bag, and I was hoping that this one would finally solve the problem, but it doesn’t. The earlier tags were all designed to alarm on my phone and the bag if I walk away from the bag. Yes, this one will do that BUT ONLY IF YOU PAY FOR AN EXPENSIVE MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION at £2.50 per month if you sign up for a year else £2.99 per month.
Tile Starter Pack (2022) Bluetooth Item Finder Set Review
Without the subscription, you can only trigger an alarm from one end or the other by pressing a button, and you can find out where the bag was last seen, but that’s no good if you’ve walked off and left it behind and then someone has taken it.
Its predecessor (different manufacturer) worked just fine but was a poor quality construction meaning that the battery contacts were not reliable, but it did everything and at a much lower price and no subscription.
This one is good sturdy construction and I’m confident that it would work reliably.
The subscription service is well thought out especially as it will use signals from your Tile device being detected by the phones of other Tile users to help find where your item is now. The subscription also includes free battery replacement.
The packaging is unfortunately destructive – you have to pull a tear strip to open it, and if it were not for this then I would return it and request a refund. I can’t say it doesn’t work as described because reading the description carefully it doesn’t say anywhere that it will alert if you walk away from your device.
Overall, the Tile Starter Pack (2022) Bluetooth Item Finder Set is well constructed, good looking, expensive subscription through well thought out, but doesn’t meet my needs.
