If I don't open the app occasionally, it signs me out with no warning and I stop getting any kind of notifications. Since I use this as an added aid for alerting us when our dog gets out, that's a big flaw. There is also a long delay when the dog leaves the area. That said, the other features are interesting to keep an eye on and the tracking feature to find our dog is also really helpful.

Have been a longtime customer but starting to get frustrated as the GPS tracking (which is the most important aspect of Whistle too me) does not seem to be the focus of tracker improvements. Instead the not as important "health" tracking seems to be the focus. Would love it if Whistle went back to their roots of Tagg and focus more on tracking and finding dogs location, especially for people that live in rural areas. However, Whistle is the best available, so I have to stick with them .

I've had the tracker for about a month now and I think this is a really great product with a good execution. Outdoor tracking is quite accurate and notifications are sent within a few minutes of him leaving the predefined area. The "Track" feature is really nice and provides a decent refresh rate. The fitness tracker isn't completely accurate since it doesn't register small movements and classifies it as "sleeping". Otherwise it does keep track of walking and running.

What's new

This release is all about notifications!

You can now control notifications per pet. For example, you can have your neighbor's dog in your app and turn off prompts to walk them or charge their Whistle battery.

Journaling has been a huge hit. You can now receive a reminder to journal on a schedule you choose.

Finally, notifications for non-critical things will now only come during the daytime.
