Tile recently announced a new Bluetooth tracker, the Tile Sticker. With an adhesive on the back, this tracker is ideal for placing on flat surfaces like a phone or laptop. It’s also waterproof, with a three-year battery life and a range of 140 feet. Tile also announced a smaller Tile Slim with an extended range of 200 feet, plus a new Tile Mate and Tile Pro with extended ranges of 200 and 400 feet, respectively. CJ Prober, CEO of Tile, said in a recent press release,
“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 lineup, more partners adopting our technology, and more access points coming to market everyday, we continue to deliver the most versatile and powerful finding platform.”
The Tile Sticker is available for $39.99 for a two-pack or $59.99 for a four-pack, while the Slim, Mate and Pro cost $29.99, $24.99, and $34.99, respectively. These products are available on the Tile website as well as Amazon, along with stores like Home Deport, Lowe’s, Target and Best Buy.
Tile Partners with Samsonite, Bose, And More
Last year, Tile announced partnerships that would embed their Bluetooth trackers in products like:
- Bose SoundSport Wireless and QuietControl headphones
- Samsonite luggage
- Propeller Health connected inhalers.
The company also works with Comcast, Herschel Supply, Starling by VersaMe, Boosted Boards and Bianca.
With the Tile app, users will be able to track lost items within the Bluetooth tracker’s range. If the item is outside of the range, anyone with a Tile app can pickup on it, but only the user will be alerted if it’s found. As Tile owns 80% of the United States marketshare for Bluetooth trackers, their community network is the largest, making it more likely that users will be able to find stolen or missing items.
