How to replace battery on tile

I am pretty annoyed that the battery on my Tile died but that I could not replace it per the manufacture. This is how I replaced the battery on my tile device. After this process the device still connects to the phone but does not ring. I am not just using it for my car so that I know where I parked.

The battery is a CR2025 

If anyone has suggestions for alternative to this product that is easy to replace and maintain I would be interested to hear about it.

I was able to open the casing with thumbnails on either side

The tile opens into three pieces and contains a CR2025 battery
The battery is glued down so I needed to work it out with a box cutter. 
The battery sicks to the blade

I closed it with super glue.

Replace with CR2025
