Surely everyone’s heard of Tile by now? The little keyring trackers that help you find your keys in the couch cushion and maybe even track them down if you left them at the shops.
Over the years the product has evolved, with new versions offering replaceable batteries, new style and even a slimmed-down version for your bag or the wife’s purse.
Today, Tile has announced an updated range, which includes a premium subscription service, and two new trackers.
The Tile Premium service offers things like location history, sharing with friends and smart alerts for $39.99 a year or $3.99 a month. And with so many new trackers and possibilities for tracking that’s starting to look like a cracking deal.
Tile Slim has been slimmed down. Once a big square tracker a couple of mm in thickness, it’s now credit-card sized and a bit thinner making it easier to slip into your wallet, or as a luggage tag or just in your Jacket. Perhaps that would tell me where my Jacket is that I left at the NRL Grand Final 🙁
But the real kicker this year is Tile Sticker. Sticker is waterproof and has a 3M designed adhesive so you can stick it anywhere. Under the seat of your bike, on your skateboard, or frankly anywhere.
Tile CEO CJ Prober says “Over the years we’ve seen our customers use Tile for a variety of items,”
“From wallets to remote controls, power tools to backpacks, our customers have shown us they want a Tile for everything. We’ve designed our new product line to empower the Tile community to find literally anything.”
Range is getting better on their Bluetooth, and on the Sticker, the non-replaceable battery lasts three years.
Mr Prober went on to say “Our customers increasingly rely on Tile to find and keep track of all of their belongings,”
”Whether it’s their backpacks, their cameras, or their keys, the Tile community comes together to locate lost items. With more customers using our expanded hardware line-up, more partners adopting our technology, and more access points coming to market every day, we continue to deliver the most versatile and powerful finding platform.”
All the products are available from today online and at major retailers.
Sticker will set you back $49.99 for a two-pack or $79.99 for a four-pack. Slim is $39.99, Mate is $34.99 and Pro is $44.99, plus there are a range of combo packs suited to people or families new to Tile or for Gifting goodness!
