Had whistle go for about a year. Bought mostly for emergency tracking of our dog if she gets out, which hasn't happened yet. First one had battery trouble but customer service kindly replaced it. Works reasonably well on tracking. One issue: the app keeps running in the background on my phone, even when I close it, and it eats up my phone's battery. I have to force it to quit at least once a day.

Terrible product and terrible customer support. The device stopped recognizing a new 100% charged battery after less than 6 months, and the support team did nothing to resolve the problem, beyond asking for a photo of the battery charged to 100%. As if consumers are unable to tell when the battery is charged using the green light indicator. Entirely unhelpful and absolutely unreliable. Not worth the price for the device, and it won't be able to help you find your pet in the event they are lost.

I've been using the GPS & health for a few years and love it. It does take a longer than i like for it to recognize my dog left her safe zone as well as having to wait for activity to sync before the flashlight will work. Just did an update and I couldn't open the app. Just kept getting a pop up notification that says "something went wrong with whistle try updating app after its developer provides a fix for this error." Had to uninstall and reinstall.

Sorry you experienced some issues. It sounds like the uninstall and reinstall fixed it for you? If it didn't, please update to the latest version of the app to fix this crash. It was just published. We’re deeply sorry we released an app that crashes like this and thank you for the review letting us know.
