Tile Sticker and Tile Slim are the company's thinnest trackers to date

That’s exactly what they’ve done with the new Tile Sticker and Tile Slim.

The Tile Sticker is a button-style tracker that uses 3M adhesive to stick onto most metal and plastic surfaces. It measures 27mm x 7.3mm with a range of 150 feet, is waterproof and features a three-year battery life.

Tile’s Slim, meanwhile, now comes in the shape of a credit card, perfect for slotting into your wallet or luggage tag. It boasts a longer 200-foot range and is twice as loud as the previous Slim. Like the Sticker, it also comes with three years of battery life.

Unfortunately, the battery isn’t replaceable on neither the Sticker nor the Slim. Once it dies, you’ll have to replace it. Of course, three years is a long time and Tile will likely have even better and more desirable devices to choose from come late 2022.

Tile has also rolled out new versions of its Mate and Pro trackers, adding even more versatility to these established product lines.

Tile’s new products are available from today from the company’s website and at major retailers including Amazon, Best Buy, Target and Lowe’s. Pricing starts at $39.99 for a Tile Sticker two-pack while individual Tile Slim, Tile Mate and Tile Pro units go for $29.99, $24.99 and $34.99, respectively. Multi-packs with gift-giving in mind are also available.

A tracker for nearly everything,.....at 150 feet?
Is this a joke? The first thing people want to track - location of their kids. The second - location of their valuables, like a car, in case something gets stolen. 150 feet range is good for nothing. For people trying to find things inside their own house? Oh please!

Maybe they should sell it as a gadget for playing peekaboo.

Man I was really into these for a while. Then found out that literally all of their locations of things data is crowdsourced from everyone with the app. With the app always running in the background, it can observe non-paired tiles to mark their location (using your phones location). Which is a neat solution but also really explained battery drain I was having on my one phone with the app installed. However, I don't really appreciate my phone/battery being used as the backbone for finding other people's stuff. Didn't end up repurchasing when my nonreplaceable batteries died, still looking for a product that can just beep within bluetooth range, I don't need the extra stuff Tile does.

Isn’t there supposed to be one more dimension?
