The updated version of Tagg's product adds another metric to monitor your pet's overall well-being — it can now alert you if your pet is experiencing unhealthy levels of heat or cold. The obvious example is if you have a dog sitting in a hot car; you'll now be notified when the temperatures are reaching dangerous levels. (I prefer just to not leave my dog in the car when it's hot, but I realize not everyone always has that option.) As for the battery, Tagg says it should last long enough that you only need to charge it a few times a month. Alongside the updated collar, Tagg will also release an updated smartphone app, which is a good thing — the older version that we checked out is still an iOS 6 version.
The Tagg Pet Tracker is a great way to follow your wandering cat or an escape-artist dog.

The Tagg tracker is designed for dogs and cats over 10 lbs. and is a small, lightweight and durable device that attaches securely to an existing collar. Built to withstand all the running, digging and jumping of a pet’s busy day, the tracker is meant to be worn at all times, even while swimming. The long-lasting battery can last up to 30 days, but actual battery life will vary based on usage patterns.

The Tagg allows you to track and find your pet's location on a map, wherever it may be, using your mobile device or computer. It also logs your dog's daily activity level and grades it.Like many of these comments, I too have Whistle. I bought Tagg when first out. It was great and precise. They were constantly updating the technology to their website and support was great! At one time, after warrantee had expired, one of the collar transmitters wings were chewed off. Tagg replaced unit FREE OF CHARGE! The day Whistle acquired Tagg, all went to hell. The site did not track daily activity like Tagg did. Receiving notification your pet is outside the safe zone is a minimum 10 minutes until you get the notice and likewise when returned to safe zone. The “real time” tracking sucks, pet may be out of safe zone for 30 minutes and will show only one position on map. Tagg would actually track pets travel. False notices, like middle of night when dogs sleeping in my room not wearing transmitters…Go figure! As for customer service, Tagg was top notch…Whistle sucks! Have tried contacting them several times via Whistle site never getting a response. Currently have one of my two just stopped working. Looking for replacement for two better made GPS units that comes with good customer service> Any suggestions?The Tagg tracking device itself is non-cumbersome and fits easily onto your dog's collar. It is durable and water resistant. If you have another dog that might chew on the Tagg, you can buy a protective cover for an additional $6.00.
