Tile makes great little products that enable us to keep track of our precious items. The trackers it makes can be used to keep an eye on stuff that we can’t stand to lose, it’s very easy to locate the tracker using the companion mobile app. Tile today announced that it has come out with a new Slim tracker that’s so thin that it can easily be carried inside a wallet. This one is certainly for those of us who have a habit of forgetting our wallets.

According to Tile, the new Slim tracker is as thin as two credit cards stacked on top of each other. The actual dimensions come in at 54 x 54 x 2.4 mm while an average credit card comes in around 54mm wide and 0.76mm thick, so it’s more like three credit cards stacked on top of each other.

Aside from the fact that it has shed off quite a lot of weight, the Tile Slim tracker is not that different in functionality from the original Tile tracker. If you misplace an item and know that it has a Tile with it, just mark it as lost in the app and the tracker will ring until you are able to find what you lost.

The Slim offers four different ringer options and reaches a maximum 82dB volume. If you’re interested in purchasing one, go to Tile’s website and buy one for $30 or pay $100 for a pack of four. The new Slim tracker will also be available from Apple, Target, and Best Buy starting this Friday.
