Honestly I read all these bad reviews but once I got the thing connected it really is awesome! I think the trick is to charge the device before syncing it to your phone. In this order, charge bowtie, download app, set up account, do the tutorial, wait 2 hours, place the bowtie next to phone, start connection process. I read on their website you need to have it charged first :D
A friend of mine bought this for me so she would have a friend to compete with. I'm sure she spent enough and it won't even connect to Android. She has an iPhone and has no issues but I can't get mine set up. It won't connect to the bowtie and sometimes doesn't even register that the phone and bowtie are right next to each other.
LOL WOW. How on EARTH AND BEYOND can something be released and even sold at pet stores that is so unreliable? Bought it, charged it and even updated the firmware and yet STILL THE SAME PROBS I SEE PPL HAVE HAD FOR A YEAR NOW!! Why is this taking so long to get the product working properly?? Did you fire the entire tech division?? All it ever does now is say connecting. Have tried un/reinstalling etc. Fail.
Terrible. Returning. Does not connect. Android version has fewer options than Apple version. Have spent a few hours trying to get it to work. Once it finally connected no activity was tracked. Taking back.
Doesn't connect Bought brand new was very excited and no matter what I try it does not want to connect. Very disappointed. I guess I will be returning.
Crap Device, Decent Company Company has reached out quickly and offered a new Bowtie to replace the obsolete crap Bestbuy is still selling for $50.
