Tile Tracking Being Built Into Headphones, Luggage and More

January 8, 2018

Tile has introduced several new partnerships that will see its popular smart location technology built into consumer products. The Tile tracking technology will soon be found in headphones, luggage, and more.

According to the Monday announcement, Tile has partnered with three companies, including Bose, Samsonite, and Propeller Health.

  • The company today announced it is working with leading consumer electronics company, Bose. Beginning late spring 2018, Bose SoundSport Wireless and QuietControl™ 30 headphones will come with Tile technology embedded inside, allowing users to ring their headphones when misplaced or tap into the Tile community when truly lost.
  • Tile also welcomes Samsonite to the Platform. With a global pilot scheduled for spring 2018, Tile and Samsonite are working together to define and create next-generation luggage.
  • Propeller Health is now working with Tile to integrate Tile technology into its sensors. Through Propeller’s connected inhalers, digital interfaces and personalized insights, it will now be easier than ever to ensure asthma and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease patients are able to find important inhalers and information.

As Mike Farley, CEO and Co-Founder of Tile explains:

With the Tile Platform, we’re extending the finding power of Tile and its global community to leading brands spanning audio, travel, transportation and even digital health management. Whether it’s a pair of wireless headphones, a suitcase filled with precious memories, or a life-saving connected inhaler, we want to make sure consumers can find their items no matter where they are, whether under the couch or halfway around the world.

Building Tile trackers into consumer devices is a great idea, no?
