Doggies don’t give a crap about how they look, let alone where they are. As long as they’re knee deep in no good, or simply sleeping under the shadow of a tree on a hot summer’s day, they couldn’t be happier. However, owners might have something to say about that, and if you’ve ever lost your pooch or feline you know the experience can be heart wrenching.
The Tagg pet tracker is a small device that attaches to your pet’s collar. Using a built-in GPS chip it relays the location of your pet by simply logging into the company’s website. In the event fido has a tendency to run wild, as in beyond his confines, you can setup a zone notification, otherwise known as a “geofence,” which initiates an alert by text and email indicating his whereabouts. Each Tagg tracker has a battery life that is good for up to 30 days and it will automatically notify you by text and email when it needs to be charged. They’re water resistant, so inclement weather should be a non issue, though we don’t know what would happen if Rex took a dive in the local pond.
Tagg sells a master kit, which includes the tracker, a battery charger, USB and AC plug and one year of service for $199.95. Each subsequent year of service costs $59.95 and if you buy more than one Tagg tracker, without a charging station, the price drops to $139.95, or $149.95 if you opt for a colored version.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
