Cube PRO Review

Table of Contents

Throughout my childhood, I was constantly losing things. Keys, pets, my homework (so I claimed)— if it was in my hands, it was as good as gone. That’s why I wish I could travel back in time and give my poor little self a Bluetooth tracker. All you have to do is attach one to your item and you’ll be able to see its location on your phone. Imagine all the confusion I could’ve avoided!

Today I’m reviewing the Cube PRO; its design, features, and the Cube app. Let’s see begin the Cube PRO review now!

The Cube PRO has an impressive 200-foot range, an integration with Amazon Alexa, plus, it doubles as a shutter button. 

Cube PRO Design

If the Cube PRO was a celebrity, it would be Arnold Schwarzenegger. Black and silver, almost aggressive, the Cube says “don’t mess with me” and it has the specifications to back it up. First off, let’s talk about its siren. At 101 decibels, this 1.5 inch square can emit sounds as loud as a handheld drill. That’s pretty alarming, especially for something that weights a third of an ounce. If the siren isn’t enough for you, the Cube PRO can be found within 200 feet of your phone.

But the Cube PRO isn’t just a screamer. It can also withstand tough weather conditions, from temperatures negative four to 150 degrees Fahrenheit, to immersion in one meter of water. Should I be entering the Cube PRO on Survivor?

The small but might Cube PRO has replaceable batteries plus a keyring so you can easily attach it to your keys. All in all, I have no issues with the design and I’m particularly impressed with the siren. Now let’s talk about what the Cube PRO can do.

Like I said, if your Cube Pro is within 200 feet of your phone, you’ll be able to track its location. However, the world is a big place, and things can easily get lost beyond that range. What’s a man to do?

Crowd Find

Crowd Find means that anyone with a Cube app will be able to help you locate your Cube PRO. All you have to do is log onto your app, mark the Cube as lost, and wait for it to show up in someone else’s network. And don’t worry— no one is literally looking for your Cube. Instead, it’s done automatically by the Cube network. As soon as a Cube-user has stumbled into its range, you’ll be notified that your Cube was found.

Most Bluetooth trackers have a community feature, but my concern with Cube is that they’re a pretty small company. While I can’t find exact stats on how many products they’ve sold, they are clearly not one of the big names in Bluetooth trackers, like Tile or Chipolo. My concern is that without a large network, your Cube may be less likely to be found through Crowd Find.

Smart Platform Integration

Another negative of the Cube PRO is its lack of smart platform integrations. Fortunately, the company says that partnerships with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant are coming soon.

Have you ever gotten tired from taking too many selfies? With your arm in the way, we all know how difficult it can be to get a good angle.

The last and certainly most unique feature of the Cube PRO is that you can make it a shutter button. All you have to do is change the settings in your app and voila— you can simply press your Cube to take a picture. Move over, Kim Kardashian.

Installing the Cube PRO

After you download the Cube app and set up your account, click add new device and select what else? The Cube PRO. The app will make sure the Bluetooth is on, and once you press the button on the tracker’s face, it’ll sync with the app. The whole process took less than three minutes and truly couldn’t have been easier.

The Cube App

The Cube app is where you’ll track any lost items, help others to find their lost items, and create the shutter button feature.

The good news is that Apple users absolutely loved the Cube app, giving it a nearly-perfect rating of 4.8 out of five stars.

Unfortunately, Android users were not as pleased. They only gave it 2.8 stars, most people citing issues connecting with the Cube.

Recap of the Cube PRO

Overall, I think the Cube PRO is the right choice for some but not all customers. Let’s talk about the good first:

  • 101 decibel siren: although it’s not the loudest siren I’ve seen from a Bluetooth tracker, I think the siren will be really helpful in finding your lost object.
  • Large temperature range: whether it’s the dead of winter or the hottest summer in decades, the Cube PRO sure is tough.
  • High IP rating: smash it in dirt, immerse it with one meter of water— the Cube PRO will still work perfectly.
  • Replaceable battery: you won’t have to replace your tracker when the battery runs out.
  • Fairly high range: while 200 feet is not the highest range I’ve seen from a Bluetooth tracker, it is definitely above average.
  • Shutter button: this feature has nothing to do with finding objects but it sure is fun!
  • Easy installation: Even the least tech-savvy person can easily set up the Cube PRO.

However, the Cube PRO definitely has its negatives, such as:

  • Smaller network: Cube doesn’t exactly dominate the marketplace, meaning fewer people have the app.
  • No smart platform integrations: if you’re an Alexa or Google Assistant nut, you’ll have to wait for voice commands.
  • Poor Google Play store reviews: Cube’s app doesn’t work well for Android users, so I would steer clear.

FAQs

How does the Cube tracker work?

Connecting to the Cube Tracker app over Bluetooth, users will be able to find their Cube Trackers if they’re within an 100-foot range. If they’re outside of that range, users should mark their trackers as “lost” in the app and wait for someone else to walk into it’s range, which will notify them of the tracker’s location, a feature called Crowd Find.

What is the best key finder?

The best key finder on the market is the Tile Pro. It has a 400-foot range, a one-year replaceable battery, integrations with Alexa and Google Assistant, and a 98-decibel siren. It is also hermetically sealed and can be immersed in water while still functioning normally. Tile also has the large community in the United States, making their “community find” network the most likely to help you find your tracker.

Is there a monthly fee for Tile?

There’s no required fee for Tile trackers. However, if you want alerts if you leave home without your tracker, free battery replacements, a location history, an extended warranty, unlimited sharing and premium customer support through an exclusive text line, you can sign up for Tile Premium which costs either $2.99 a month or $29.99 a year.
