The Victorinox INOX Watch ($TBA) is made from a solid block of solid stainless steel and can handle anything you can throw at it. It's the big boys version of a G-Shock. The INOX was made to celebrate the 130-year heritage of Victorinox and has gone through and unprecedented 130 homologations tests.

A little bit ago we did a write-up on the Tile App ($25) and it was a big hit. Well we just got one in our little hands this article will review our experience with this little device.To get started lets review exactly what the Tile is. It's a small 1 3/8", well tile, that you can attach to personal items to track them if they get lost. You can either clip Tile through a key ring or use the provided adhesive. Simple enough.Getting started is simple as well. Just attach the Tile to whatever you're tracking and download the app to your Apple or Android device via their Tile App url.Once the App is installed you create an account using an email, and add the tile by pressing the 'e' on the Tile and placing it on your device.Once you're connected you can add a picture to identify your Tile, and you're good to go.I ran a quick test by having my daughter hide the Tile in the house. The App immediately noticed that it was in range and I could hear the tile making a notification sound even though It was a level below me. I was surprised at how loud the actual sound was. The fact I can hear it through the entire house is a definite bonus.So this got me thinking of all the things I've lost over the years that I could have easily found again if only I'd had a tile.
