The Fitbit Inspire 2's newfound Tile integration means you'll never lose it
What you need to know
- The Fitbit Inspire 2 now works with Tile from today onwards as part of a collaboration between the two companies.
- An update is rolling out to enable this newfound integration.
- Once installed, users will be able to use the Tile Network to keep track of their Inspire 2 wearables.
Fitbit and Tile are getting closer today with a new update. Once installed, users of the Fitbit Inspire 2 will be able to use the Tile app to keep track of their wearable both indoors and outdoors.
The update is rolling out today to Inspire 2 owners. Users will be able to use the Tile app to track their Fitbits if at home and within bluetooth range. They'll also be able to use the Tile app to track any lost wearables if outdoors via the Tile Network. As a quick refresher, this means that other Tile users who pass near your lost Inspire 2 will essentially transmit its location back to you automatically. It's a tool that gets more powerful via way of the network effect, and you'll get a lot out of it in large cities like New York or San Francisco.

It's a nice little addition to a wearable whose compact size lends itself to getting lost and misplaced. You can get a lot more out of the tile integration by signing up to the Tile Premium service, but the base feature-set should be fine for most.
