I want to get one of these devices to track my skis this winter... there seem to be two products that could work
stated range: 50-150ft 'line of sight'
iOS based, bluetooth 4.0
preorder for about $18
still not shipping for a couple months (claim shipping 'winter 2013-14')
best advantage - can alert cloud network to let any other tile user know if your missing device is within their range
biggest con - they say batteries aren't replaceable and that you need to order new tiles each year essentially making it so that you pay ~$20/year for the service of finding your shit.
Stick n Find http://www.sticknfind.com
stated range: 100ft
Android, iOS based, bluetooth 4.0
order for $49 for two devices
best advantages - replaceable batteries, smaller size
biggest con - slightly more costly, open speaker doesn't look snow friendly
Will these work under snow??? Are they water resistant?
