The market for dog GPS trackers has needed a fitness tracker for years and in 2020 FitBark finally filled that need. The FitBark came onto the scene as the “fitbit for dogs” and more than ably fits that description.
And FitBark’s tracker is packed with features. It provides some serious data about your dog- not just location and activity tracking.
Read on for our in-depth review:
- The FitBark Tracks dog’s health stats including activity levels, sleep, calories, etc and can even be used to help set goals like weight loss for your dog
- The data is beautifully aggregated so you can review it with your vet
- Waterproof and lightweight
- Easy set up
- It will integrate with your fitness trackers so you AND your dog can get fit
- Requires paid subscription plan
- Tracking in US only
- If you’re in an area that does not have good Verizon coverage, it doesn’t work.
- Slow to update location so if your dog is a roamer, this could be a problem
What are reviewers saying?
The day after we put the tracker on our dog he escaped. It only took 45 minutes to find him thanks to his fitbark. As I wasn’t familiar with the app yet I lost the find dog button so I contacted customer service and they helped me find what I needed and sent me google coordinates for his location. 100% satisfied!https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/RCLT5J69B7FDP/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B084L3YM82
I am more than happy with my purchase of the FitBark GPS tracker. The set up and attachment of the FitBark to my dog’s collar was quick and easy following the video in the FitBark app. I have had several questions before and after purchasing the FitBark and quickly got answers using the chat feature.
True story I recently traveled to a vacation home and being anxious to establish an “at home” location using WiFi as soon as possible I was on my computer at midnight chatting with a rep who guided me through the process till I had correctly set it up, let me mention that I am 67 so a little extra hand holding was in order. When you have a beloved pet, especially one who loves to run this kind of service is worth it’s weight in gold.
I would like to add there are many features I have not yet explored that this tracker offers, but I can say that the battery life is great, and that it is waterproof is a must. I also like the daily notifications of activity I have been receiving and now that I have time I am going to check out the rest of the information the tracker has to offer in the app. In summation, this tracker has offered me peace of mind for many reasons, when I get another pup I will be a repeat customer.https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/RV9ITQJ9XYBIL/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B084L3YM82
