Activity Monitoring

The health and wellness of your four-legged friend are important to us at Tractive. That's why we've integrated brand new Activity Monitoring features into the Tractive IKATI and Tractive GPS DOG trackers. With these devices, you can now monitor your pet's activity level directly in the Tractive GPS app.

How can I view my pet's activity data?

In the Tractive GPS web app:

  • Sign into the Tractive GPS web app at my.tractive.com.
  • Select the desired pet/tracker in the left-hand menu and click Activity.

In the Tractive GPS mobile app:

  • Open the app and select the desired pet by clicking on the pet image at the bottom center of the screen.
  • Tap the Activity tab.

 

How does it work? 

At the top of the screen, select the date or time period for which you'd like to view the activity level of your pet. You can choose the day, week, or month (web app shown below):

With the date selected, you can now view the following data below:

  • Activity Overview: view the percentage of time your dog or cat spent in the activity level categories: Calm (less active), Active and Playful (very active). 
  • Activity Summary: see if your pet was mainly calm, active, or playful for the specified time frame.
  • Daily Activity/Average: see the dynamic peaks in your pet's activity.
  • Sleeping Behavior: get an overview of your pet's sleeping behavior.
  • Activity Goal: based on their age, size, and fitness level, set the daily goal in Pet Points for your four-legged pal.

 

What are Pet Points?

Pet Points represent the activity level of your pet. The more your pet moves, the more Pet Points he or she earns. Depending on the intensity of the movement, the activity is categorized as calm, active or playful.

 

How many Pet Points should my pet achieve per day?

At this time, Tractive does not provide recommended Pet Point targets. What is considered a healthy amount of exercise and activity for any pet is very individual and can vary depending on the type of pet, breed, size, weight, age, and health condition. 

Use the activity monitoring feature consistently over several days and weeks to learn what is normal for your pet and based on this information, set a reasonable Pet Points daily goal for your four-legged friend.

In case your dog or cat is overweight or obese, you may want to slightly increase the activity over time, for example by going for extra or longer walks, or enjoying more play time together.

 

What if I don't see any data?

To use the Activity Monitoring feature, you'll need to sync your pet's activity data on the tracker with your smartphone. Follow the steps below to do so:

  1. Enable GPS / location services and Bluetooth your smartphone. In case your phone does not have Bluetooth, this feature may not be supported.
  2. Turn the Tractive GPS Tracker on and set it down next to your smartphone.
  3. Once the data is successfully synchronized, you'll be able to see your pet's activity information visualized on the Activity Monitoring screen.

Note: Following the steps above, the data should be synced automatically. In case this does not occur, swipe down on the screen of the Activity tab in the Tractive GPS mobile app to sync the activity data.
