The companies Tile and Fitbit have teamed up to equip the Inspire 2 devices with Bluetooth discovery technology. This allows users to find their wearable at any time.
Fitbit Inspire 2 receives Bluetooth discovery technology from Tile
Fitbit has teamed up with the discovery technology company Tile and further developed the functions of its Inspire 2 fitness tracker. For Tile it is the entry into the wearable market.
“Fitbit helps people lead healthier, more active lifestyles, and we want to help by making sure you never lose your fitness tracker,” said CJ Prober, CEO of Tile, in the press release. “With Tile location technology now available directly from your Fitbit Inspire 2, you’ll never have to worry about missing a step again. Wearables are an exciting new category for us and a strong addition to our existing integrations with headphones and laptops. “
The function should be available free of charge to both new and existing Inspire 2 customers. The latter should be asked later this week to update the device software via the Fitbit app. In order to be able to use the tile function, the tile app must also be installed on the smartphone.
“With Tile technology, we’re adding even more convenience and helpful tools to Inspire 2, our accessible, easy-to-use activity and sleep tracker,” said Larry Yang, director, product management of Fitbit Devices at Google. “We’re excited to partner with Tile as it allows our users to focus on building healthy habits without worrying about not being able to find their misplaced device. And we have the potential to bring Tile’s search technology to more Fitbit devices in the future. ”
Notifications are also possible with Tile Premium subscription
The new function makes it possible – within Bluetooth range – to find the Fitbit Inspire 2 by ringing the smartphone. Out of range, the last location of the fitness tracker can be determined and found with the Tile app.
Additional functions such as Smart Alerts can also be used with a Tile Premium subscription. With Tile’s Smart Alerts, the Tile app sends a proactive notification if the Fitbit Inspire 2 is forgotten before leaving home.
