    I recently had my 4th Treasure Tag (WS-2) and my 3rd Treasure Tag Mini (WS-10) die on me. None of them have lasted more than 3 months till now.

    WS-10 - Just stops getting detected. Replacing the battery doesn't help
    WS-2 - Something comes loose inside and instead of staying on, it switches between on/off every few seconds and makes beeping noises. Every single one of them.

    Sure, I had the first few ones replaced from Nokia (then), but because of thee low cost of these devices, I stopped wasting hours of my life arguing with the service center and bought new ones.

    The latest ones I have are a week old and already dead. I thought their QC might have improved by now.

    Do others also face horrible reliability from their treasure tags? How long have they lasted?

    I'm suspecting that they aren't being manufactured any more and hence you have old stock

    What does old stock have anything to do with its reliability? The reliability was poor 3 years ago when I bought my first one, is poor now.

    Okay, then that's a different case then

    Devices wear out over time and if they stay in storage for years, can they be 100% working when picked up?

    Ideally, the only thing that wears out is the battery. I replaced the battery (CR-2032), tried Maxell, Sony, Panasonic, it is the same issue with every tag. The WS-2 keeps beeping incessantly as if something is loose and the WS-10 just dies.

    There was a known issue with the gadgets app, which was fixed by sideloading a newer version from the fast ring, or getting into release preview and waiting 2-3 days.

    I wonder whether the ones sold in India are inferior, somehow. Will get someone to bring me a few from the US.
