What is the battery life of the Tractive GPS?

Our latest trackers have a battery life of up to 7 days thanks to the Power Saving Zones feature, which helps maximize battery life by saving a significant amount of power when your tracker is connected to a WiFi source in a safe area, such as your home. For previous tracker models, the expected battery life is 2-5 days. It takes around 2-3 hours to fully charge a Tractive GPS tracker.

When your furry friend is resting at home, the tracker will detect that it is not moving and will report fewer positions in order to save battery power. As soon as your cat or dog starts to move around, the tracker will detect a new position every few minutes. And if you want to know exactly where your pet is, you can activate LIVE tracking and receive position updates every few seconds, which uses more battery power. So if you've got an adventurous four-legged friend who's always out and about, you'll need to charge the battery more often than if your pet is focused on home comforts.
