Tile is one of those things you hope you’ll never need, but it’s an absolute lifesaver when you do. And although Tile is predominantly designed as a protection for your keys, both the Mate and Pro have circles cut out for a keyring, the company’s online shop has accessories to make them more flexible. Adhesive pads mean the tile sits tightly on a laptop, while the luggage tag should make saying goodbye to your bags at the airport that bit less stressful. There’s no limit to the number of Tiles you can have in your account, and you can rename them to make them easier to track.

To be clear, the Tile itself doesn’t have GPS built in, that would kill the battery. But as your phone does, you can boot up the app and immediately see which ones are in range. If the app can see them, but you can’t, simply tap “Find”, and your Tile will start singing a maddeningly catchy electronic ringtone until you find it. If it isn’t in range, then the app will tell you when, and where, it was last seen. So you can take your phone nearby like a modern metal detector. As soon as it gets a signal, you can press find, and the Tile will make itself known with a jolly tune again.

The Tile is a solid enough package in its own right: connect it, leave it, forget about it. It’ll be there again when you need it. It’s an odd time for the company to introduce this, just when it’s learning to let you manage Tiles yourself. The tile was always a great product, but having to send them back in for a brand new one every year left us cold. It felt both expensive and terrible for the environment. The new Tile Mate and Tile Pro fix both problems in one fell swoop. The tile was always great for peace of mind: now it’s even better.

If you are a dog or cat owner, the thought of your best friend becoming lost is one of the most terrifying fears imaginable. The second that you know your pet is missing, your heart sinks and your mind reels. You want to know where your buddy is and you want to know now. The Whistle 3 is a product that monitors your pet’s location so that you will never have to freak out about where Fido or Mittens is again. The product also monitors how much exercise and activity your pet is getting throughout the day. Whether you’re trying to make sure that your pet is safe and sound, or if you’re just looking for a dog version of a Fitbit, the Whistle 3 a good option to try.

This product is for anyone that owns a pet and is worried about them becoming lost, or just for those who want to track their pet’s activities. If you own a pet, you have almost certainly worried about it running away. Or maybe you have a dog that actually does run away.  There have long been technologies out there that can help get your pet back to you if he is lost, but now that technology is available through your smartphone. Whistle has been putting out products to track your pet’s health and fitness activities since 2013, and recently added GPS tracking so you can track your pet’s whereabouts through your smartphone. The Whistle 3 is the latest and the best that Whistle has to offer.

This product is also for those of us who are tech-savvy, and who love gadgets. The Whistle application is compatible with iOS 9.0 or later, or Android 5.0 or later. Basically, any phone less than four years old should be fine to connect to it. While the activity monitor is cool, the main hook is that pet owners get a notification as soon as their pet leaves the designated safe zone. When you get a notification, you simply tap on it and you are taken to a GPS screen, which will not only show you where your dog is, it will also tell you when they left the safe zone, to give you a hint as to where they are headed next.

Part of the fun of hiking and camping is being disconnected from our devices. But if you get lost when exploring or need to contact someone in your group, a lack of cell service can really get in the way. That’s where the goTele steps in to help tackle the outdoors with its off-the-grid location tracking and texting capabilities.

An ever-growing portion of the world has reliable cellular service, from the city to the countryside. But odds are high that the best exploration locations near you also happen to be the best cellular dead zones. Even if you’re one of the most outdoorsy people, you’d probably still be relieved to have some form of connection amongst your fellow adventuring pals, which is where the goTele enters to help put your mind at ease.

goTele is a peer-to-peer communication device, meaning it sends messages directly to other units in the area without needed to talk with a cellular tower. Relying on its built-in GPS module, goTele can access the current location of you and anyone else in your party. The device can also send SOS signals and SMS text messages to group members as well. Along with other functionality, the device accomplishes all this without cell service.
