Is the body metal now!??!
I've had one of these since the initial Kickstarter campaign and I still use it. Mine's version 1, this version has a lot of extra features. Only problem I ever had is with long keys having to oppose short keys, which made it a bit like a puzzle to assemble. I cut and filed the key ends too, that is another thing that helps if you don't have the special key blanks. A Lishi cutter is good to have for modifying your keys.
These actual-use cases are very helpful in establishing realistic expectations. Allow me to add another one: Price/Availability - A simple Google search shows multiple sources where these can be bought a little cheaper & shipped immediately, rather than waiting 3 weeks - from multiple sellers on eNay, QVC, and others.
I bought it the last time, so far i find the flashlight the most useful part of the item, it doesn't really fit 12 key's either, it only really fits 6 well enough for me to be able to fold into each other properly and not get them caught up on each other constantly. I think it is very overpriced for the tech thats inside and i.m.o. it takes too long before the bluetooth can actually locate my keys. If i am on the third floor of my house it can take up to 5 minutes for it to connect to they keys downstairs. Big disappointment to me.... not to mention the crap and extra costs i had to have it shipped and imported in the EU...

does this have bluetooth or gps? if gps, it should be trackable to any distance?

It connects to your phone via bluetooth. Its doesn't use GPS at all. If you lose your keys it can tell you the last time your phone and keys were connected but doesn't tell you if you want away from your keys. It's not very helpful for finding your phone using the Tile. The app has to be open on your phone for the 2 to connect. Most phones will auto close the app all the time to save battery so that makes that part of the Tile useless.
It is very helpful as using the app to find your phone. My battery does last the 1-2 months like it's supposed to. Whenever I can't find my keys I can activate my app and my keys will ring. If they aren't connected my phone will actively connect to my keys and then ring. If I lose my keys and someone else with Tile finds my keys, their tile will talk to my Tile and tell me where my keys are.
Overall it is a pretty useful product. Good at helping you find your keys with your phone, less useful finding your phone with your keys.

About having to have the Tile app open to find it: no offense meant, but what you're saying just isn't the case. The app runs a service in the background to listen for requests from the Tile to find your phone and then sounds off the alarm. The full app doesn't need to be open or in the background for that to happen. This is true for iPhones and all but the lowest-spec'd Android phones, which might struggle to keep multiple services and apps running in the background.
Your battery lasts a week? Mine only last 3 days if I’m lucky. I am interested in the black version since my white one has been getting dingy since it’s in my pocket with other EDC items all day. Hope the battery will be better and I agree that it needs a battery indicator even if just in the app.
I have this, and it sucks balls.
Range? Probably decent.
Decibels? No idea, but passable for finding your keys in a quiet environment. It's not an alarm.
Waterproof? Probably not.
The worst thing about this is that the battery life lasts around a week or two--I'm not sure. I doubt anyone knows who didn't perform some sort of scientific test and checked daily if it was still reporting its position. The device doesn't report its battery level on the device itself, or in the Tile app. There's no low battery warning or indicator. It just goes from working to not working one day. The only way this thing is useful is if you're disciplined enough to plug it in to charge weekly.
I'm not trying to crap on KeySmart. I've bought basically every incarnation of their products up to and including this. From the regular KeySmart, to the extended one, to extra spacers and extensions to hold more keys, etc. But they really dropped the f'ing ball on this one. A regular tile uses a CR2032 and lasts a year. This thing uses a rechargeable battery and doesn't last 1/10th that, with absolutely no warning of when it needs to be recharged. How they're still peddling this shit boggles my mind. Stay away!

That's the trade-off for having a rechargeable battery - it has a much lower capacity than disposable batteries. I just plug mine in next to my phone and headphones before I go to bed. Just another small part of my daily routine.

1) It is easy to check. If the light doesn't come on its time to charge. Easy. 2) Don't worry about having it charged 100% of the time. I have a tile in my wallet, one in my back pack and one for a checked bag. I charge the keys and test each tile before a long trip. Takes 1 minute of my time and my key chain becomes a tracker for my Scottie vest or Columbia water tight II rain shell so I end up with my wallet, jacket, keys, and bags all lo jacked when traveling. I don't use Any thing but the wallet tracker the rest of the time and don't daily charge my keys to make the battery last longer. My favorite part of it isn't even the tracker...its the little magnet system that lets me hotswap between my 3 car keys or just grab a keyfab and leave the house keys at home (electronic combo locks on front and rear doors at home and if those die I can get the garage open with cell phone so all I REALLY need is a car key). A few other points. I loaded mine with a jump drive and always install a back up ppt of what ever class im teaching that week incase TSA breaks my laptop. I also keep a bottle opener on it as its the only TSA carry on item I can use to open those 20 card board boxes every where I go....although I some times check a travelpro rolling garment bag with my suits and just toss a cheap flea market variety knife inside there.
