Tile Pro Series Get Wet While Offering Double Coverage, Twice as Loud

Tile Style and Tile Sport Bluetooth trackers have double the range and Alexa smarts

For the uninitiated, Tile makes little fobs that can be attached to nearly anything and work in conjunction with a mobile app to help you find keys, wallets, your dog, or anything else.

Tile Sport and Tile Style both offer a Bluetooth range of up to 200 feet which is more than double the range of existing models.

The Tile Style and Tile Sport both cost $34.99. If it's not, it'll tell you where it was last located. The system also works in reverse, meaning you can find your phone by pressing the button on a Tile.

Another new feature (which rival TrackR has had for a while) is Alexa support.

The new devices also look a bit more premium and a little less techy, with the Tile Sport featuring a rugged tread and graphite ring which screams durability, while the Tile Style is framed in a champagne gold ring with more subtle satin white interior. Once the Tile skill is enabled, users of Amazon Alexa can locate their Tiled items or find their phone with simple voice commands.

He added he had been assured by United States military of "a multilayer defense" in place in the western Pacific . The Office of the Director of National Intelligence could not immediately be reached for comment.

If your keys are within Bluetooth range, Alexa will make the Tile ring.

As before, the batteries are not replaceable, so they'll work for around a year before they need to be replaced. The video below shows the older Tile Slim model. The company says that the Tile Pro Series trackers are its most powerful Bluetooth trackers to date.

Tile is also releasing an updated version of its app that'll allow users to adjust their tracker volume and pick between eight different ringtones. This doesn't affect range, but did preclude testing of the new louder buzzer. The original Tile Mate is still available for $24.99 and second-gen Tile Slim for $29.99 - with combo packs also available, and some savings available on Amazon. It now offers up to 200 feet of coverage.

Even with low background office noise, I couldn't hear the Tile's ringer at that distance, but will re-test this once the update becomes available on the App Store.
