RICHARDSON, Texas—A new GPS tracker designed for pet owners by pet owners allows real-time tracking of lost pets and more, all in a lightweight package that’s controlled by an app available for Android and iOS devices.
The Paw Tracker, which launched in late 2015, weighs only 40 grams and is waterproof and shockproof. With a battery life of up to three days, it automatically logs GPS data at intervals ranging from 10 seconds to one hour. Users can set several different kinds of notifications, including one that alerts them when the device moves outside of the range of a specific Wi-Fi network and one that notifies them if the device moves outside a specific geographical area.
