Let's begin with a look at the Tile Mate. When it comes to indoor Bluetooth trackers, the Mate is the go-to device for countless people around the world, and it's one of our most popular products. It's also Tile's original creation, upgraded and improved over the years to keep up with modern needs and ready to help out in a wide range of situations. Here's what the Tile Mate has to offer:

Next, let's take a look at the Tile Pro, king of outdoor Bluetooth trackers. The Pro is the most powerful device in the Tile lineup, boasting the biggest and broadest Bluetooth range of any Tile tracker and allowing users to find items from even further away. This makes it really well-suited for outdoor use, and it's ideal for people who spend plenty of time outdoors, have pets, or do a lot of traveling.

  • Design - A rectangular tracker with a sleek key-fob design and a hole in the top-center for easy attachment to rings, hoops, and more.

  • Compatibility - Compatible with both Android and Apple devices, as well as voice assistants like Alexa, Google, and Siri.

The Tile Pro has a lot in common with the Tile Mate, but with a couple of key differences. The biggest difference is the range; the Pro can be used from further away, and it comes with an even louder ring, so even if your missing items are a few hundred feet away, you can use the Tile Pro to track them down in no time at all.

Another difference with the Tile Pro is that it has a 1-year replaceable battery, so you won't need to worry about getting a new device when the battery runs out; you can simply replace the battery yourself. Plus, if you sign up for Tile Premium or Tile Premium Protect, you'll get free replacement batteries mailed directly to you (automatically!) every year to save you even more time.
