Tile Sport vs. Mate vs. Slim: Which Tile is best for you?

So how do you choose between them? Well, here’s a breakdown of the best use cases for each model!

Tile Sport

The Tile Sport is good for keys, cameras, travel bags, backpacks, camping gear, and anything that could end up getting wet or dusty. It’s small, loud, and perfect for most use cases. You can grab one for about $30 on Amazon.

Tile Style

The Tile Style is almost identical to the Tile Sport, save for the stylish colors and trim. Clip it on a backpack, a keychain, luggage, etc. and you’ll also be showing off your unique style (ah, so that’s why they call it that)!

Tile Mate

The Tile Mate is also good for keys, cameras, travel bags, backpacks, and more — just as long as your stuff isn’t going to end up getting banged around too much or left in the rain. The Tile Mate doesn’t offer the same water and dust resistance as the Tile Sport and Tile Style and it’s got that shorter Bluetooth range.

Tile Slim

Unlike the other Tiles, the Tile Slim is uniquely designed for wallets, tablets, and laptops. The slim design doesn’t add too much bulk to your devices while still offering that ever-so-necessary Bluetooth tracking you’ve come to need.
