Tile, known for its range of battery-powered Bluetooth-enabled tags for tracking various items, today announced the launch of upgraded Tile Mate and Tile Pro accessories.

The new Tile Mate and Tile Pro feature a longer range, louder volumes when pinging them from an iPhone, and, for the first time, batteries that can be replaced.

Previous Tile versions have not had user-replaceable batteries and thus had a limited life, but the new Tile Mate and Tile Pro can be used indefinitely. The batteries that are included with the Mate and Pro are expected to last for one year before needing replacement.

Both Tile Mate and Tile Pro have improved range. Tile Mate has a Bluetooth range of 150 feet, while Tile Pro has a Bluetooth range of 300 feet.

Along with new products, Tile is introducing Tile Premium, a subscription service that offers free battery replacements, smart alerts, and 30-day location history.

Tile Premium is priced at $29.99 annually or $2.99 per month. The service provides Smart Alerts that let you know when you leave home without specific Tiled items, and unlimited sharing, so more than one user can access the same Tile device.

Location history for each Tile device is available, and Tile provides an extended warranty for three years with premium service. Free battery replacements are also an included feature, with subscribers eligible to receive automatic free annual battery replacements for each Tile.

Tile Mate and Tile Pro are available today from the Tile website and major retailers that include Amazon and Best Buy. Tile Mate retails for $25, while Tile Pro retails for $35.

I’m thinking I should start a subscription service that helps you keep track of unnecessary subscription services.

I hate that the world is gravitating towards a subscription model.

Have been waiting for a Tile with a replaceable/rechargeable battery for years.
In the meantime I have modified one of my Tiles to have a replaceable battery.

I want a service that will automatically download all my monthly .pdf statements from my banks, investments, utility bills, etc to my Mac so I don’t have to remember to do so.

Ugh, I'd like to get one of these sort of things, but a premium service is not what I'm willing to pay for. Its one of those niceties to have, but paying a monthly fee just so I don't lose my wallet or keys is not worth it
Then don't pay the monthly fee. The Tile itself will still work just the same and you'll be able to find your keys just fine.
