We have a kitty that runs around and explores outside and we use this every day to track him. We have already used it several times to pick him up before a storm when he wanders too far. We know just where to find him. The flashing light feature is wonderful too. It's so interesting to see where he goes and how active or lazy he is during the day. Worth the money in my opinion. The whistle brand collar didn't work because it was too big for a cat but this clips on fine to his regular collar, very secure, and doesn't seem to bother him at all. 12lb cat.
I purchased these for my dogs as we were moving from the city to the country, a big change for my older dogs. We don't have a fence and I wanted to make sure we could find them if they ever got loose. Thankfully, in the 9 months that I've had them, they've only been truly needed once, but they did their job excellently when it mattered. This brings me a peace of mind as I live with an elderly family member and my dogs are big, so this helps as well in case something happens when I am not home. 1000% recommend this product.
I cannot speak highly enough about Whistle -- both as a company and as a product!We currently use the Go Explore yet I've been a loyal Whistle customer for a couple of years now.I first learned about and purchased the Whistle 3 just over two years ago when our beloved kitty, Roxie, went missing for a full two weeks! Devastated we moved on with our lives hoping that she'd come home but fearing the worst. She came home on her own hungry for love, attention and of course food! We were elated and it was right after that that we purchased our first Whistle product.Since then, knowing that I can track her whereabouts when she's out and about in the neighborhood brings me a peace of mind that I cannot explain unless you have lost a pet before. I am a much calmer person when Roxie is wearing her Whistle tracker.Recently, she lost her device and we went without for far too long. I wrote the company and they provided us with a new Whistle Go Explore tracker FOR FREE (they have a policy that they can replace a device if the lost device meets certain criteria). I was elated to hear of this policy and to receive our device free of charge. The customer service has been impeccable and I could not have asked for better service -- this has been the case since I became a (now very loyal) Whistle customer!If you are considering buying a Whistle tracker, wait no longer -- make the purchase! You will not regret it!Thank you, Whistle!
Worked well straight from the box. It took three weeks for the battery to drain to 25%, after which I received a low battery warning. After a couple hours of recharging it went back on the dog. The app doesn't kill your phone battery like link does. The link app can drain my phone in about 6 hours by itself. I don't notice any drain with the whistle app. I cannot explain this. I recommend whistle.
I have had my Whistle Go Explore for several weeks so I feel confident enough to write a thorough review. I was extremely skeptical of this type of technology but I took the leap and I’m glad I did. I also bought the collar Whistle specifically makes for housing the GPS/Activity Tracker.Right out of the box, it is ready to go. All you have to do is download the whistle app on your phone, charge the device, and navigate through the initial setup—all done through the Whistle app. Setup is super easy and relatively quick. **Whistle does require a subscription**. That may seem like a draw back but it’s no more than $5 a month. For me, it is worth it for the peace of mind if my dog gets lost.Pros:-durable. The device does show wear after some extensive play but it is purely cosmetic. The plastic used is very strong, light, and water resistant.-accurate. Device is accurate the vast majority of the time. I have ran into some issues where the app took an extensive period of time to load and track his location but after a period of a minute or two it was back working as usual.-easy set up.-tracks fitness levels and sets goals based on weight, age, and breed-tracks scratching and licking. EXTREMELY useful feature. The device tracks how many minutes per day your dog scratches or licks and compares that to a baseline average. If your dog licks or scratches more than usual, the whistle app will notify you. Really useful during flea and tick season. Increased scratching might mean it’s time for a flea treatment.-LED light. Pretty cool feature. LED light is fairly bright at night. It has slow and fast strobe as well as a continuous on mode.Cons:-device does show cosmetic wear after a short period. It does not effect the function of the collar.-Rare connectivity issuesTo summarize: if you are looking to simultaneously attain peace of mind in the event your dog gets lost, track your dogs health, and have a LED light to use at night this is the collar for you. It’s durable, the subscription is not that expensive, and the Whistle collar is perfect for mounting the device. You can use your own collar with the included mounting attachment, but the collar with the receiver specifically made for the device is metal and super strong. The buckle on the collar is also metal. The little loopy thing that you attach leashes to is also metal. It’s nice :) You won’t be disappointed.
