Heat for the price, but the problem that puts me off this is that the battery is non replaceable and lasts about 12 months and you have to pay for a replacement unit from the manufacturer. There are alternatives out there that do have replaceable batteries for a cheaper price however....

Yes! And the replacement cost (discounted price) is similar to this price. But consider the integrations Tile has, and that since its a well funded company, its going to receive updates and improvements for the foreseeable future.

I agree it goes to landfill after 12 months which seems crazy. Whats the alternatives?

The one I am looking at is this amazon.co.uk/dp/…4KP

It may not have the same functionality as this but its much cheaper as you can replace the battery yourself at least

You can get a Sealed Tile Mate from CeX for £10, so more like a £10/year subscription if you're okay with the base model

Hahaha, it averages to about one year if you look for it on your phone once a week I think.
I had a cheaper alternative (nut 2) and it was just too flimsy and broke - having a replaceable battery isn't necessarily a good thing if it compromises build quality
