Tile Sticker 4 - Pack + Echo Dot (3rd Gen) 9.98 .99 at Amazon Amazon is offering a free Echo Dot when you purchase a four - pack of Tile Stickers . The new Tile stickers are waterproof and can stick on to virtually anything that you want to keep track of.

Tile took the wraps off a variety of new and updated trackers on Tuesday -- perhaps getting out in front of Apple, which is rumored to start offering its own line of such devices. And even though it's barely a day old, the new Tile Sticker already has a deal designed to drive home its "smart" capabilities: For a limited time, Amazon is offering the Tile Sticker four-pack for $59.99, a price that includes a free third-gen Echo Dot. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.

The Sticker is about the size of four stacked quarters -- definitely Tile's smallest tracker yet, which makes its 150-foot range particularly impressive. It employs a super-sticky adhesive that promises to keep it permanently attached (until you pry it loose) to just about anything.

Amazingly, it's fully waterproof, so if you were to stick one to, say, a bike, skateboard or GoPro, it should have no trouble withstanding puddles, splashes and the like.

The trade-off for that: The battery isn't replaceable, much like the Tiles of old. However, Tile says each Sticker should last you an admirable three years, so you're effectively paying $5 per unit per year -- not at all a bad deal, and almost certainly less than what Apple will charge.

Tile trackers will warn when you've left your bag at the coffee shop .
Tile's trackers already help you find lost items, but now they might help you before the wave of panic hits. The company is relaunching Smart Alerts in beta to automatically warn when you've left a tracked item behind if it's been there for at least five minutes. If you rush out of the coffee shop without your bag, you'll ideally get an alert before you've reached your car. You'll need a Premium subscription ($30 per year or $3 per month), but it might be a small price to pay if you can't bear the thought of leaving a valuable item alone for more than a few minutes. The beta will be available in December.False alarms shouldn't be a problem, thankfully.
