Fitbit’s Inspire 2 devices can now be traced with Tile bluetooth technology.

Tile and Fitbit have teamed up now and starting with the Fitbit Inspire 2 devices, you will be able to track the wearables with Tile’s bluetooth technology. So far, Tile has been known for the smart tags that you can slip into your bags or stick on your other devices for easy tracking, but this new partnership marks Tile’s entry into the wearable space starting with Inspire 2.

If you already own a Fitbit Inspire 2, you will get a prompt to update your device software in the Fitbit app from today to add the Tile feature. Once updated, you will be directed to download the Tile app to activate the finding tool. All new Fitbit Inspire 2 devices are capable of enabling Tile’s finding tech.

Once all the updates and downloads are in place, if you misplace your Inspire 2 you can use the Tile app to locate your device. If by any chance you are outside the bluetooth range, you can use the app to view its most recent location or leverage Tile’s global network to find it. Additionally, if your Inspire 2 is connected via Bluetooth to your phone, you can now use your Inspire 2 to ring your phone - even when it’s on silent.

Additional features, such as Smart Alerts, can also be accessed with the Tile Premium subscription. With Tile’s Smart Alerts, the Tile app will be able to proactively notify you before you leave your Fitbit Inspire 2 behind when you are heading out of the house.

Fitbit’s Inspire 2 comes with Active Zone Minutes, 20 goal-based exercise modes, advanced sleep tools and 24/7 heart rate tracking, up to 10 days of battery life and a one year trial of Fitbit Premium. It is priced at 10,999 and is available on the Fitbit site and at major ecommerce retailers.
