Speaking of travel, sometimes the unexpected happens.

This starter pack includes 2 Bluetooth enabled tracking devices – one perfect for attaching via a ring to keys, purses, wallets, luggage and another Slim fit that is as thin as a credit card and can be slipped into a wallet, or sticky attached to a laptop, or any other object. If something goes missing, Mom can locate it on her phone app (including that lost luggage via GPS). And if she loses her phone? She can double press the Tile button on her Tile to make her phone ring (even if it was set to Silent mode).
