What is Activity Monitoring and how is it different from GPS tracking?

The fitness and well-being of your four-legged friend are important to us at Tractive. That's why we've integrated brand new Activity Monitoring features into the latest GPS trackers from Tractive. With them, you can monitor your pet's physical activity level directly in the Tractive GPS app, in addition to always knowing the location of your furry friend.

Please note: The Activity Monitoring feature is currently only available on select devices and in the Tractive GPS mobile app.

Below the difference between GPS tracking and activity monitoring is explained:

 

GPS Tracking

All Tractive GPS pet trackers feature real-time location tracking for your cat or dog, including a LIVE Tracking feature,  which gives you a position update for your pet every 2-3 seconds.

So no matter which GPS tracker from Tractive you choose, you'll always be able to view the live location of your furry friend - on a BASIC or PREMIUM subscription plan - this is the essential feature of the Tractive GPS.

Below is an example of the LIVE Tracking screen in the app:

Activity Monitoring

Additionally, on select trackers, you can also take advantage of the Activity Monitoring feature, which allows pet parents to ensure the well-being of their furry friend by monitoring their physical activity. The data from this feature mainly pertains to the activity and fitness levels of your four-legged pal, rather than his or her location. You can see how active your dog or cat has been, set daily activity goals, compare your pet's activity with others in the community, plus more!
