Pets love to explore, and sometimes we don't have time to go along for the ride. Whether you own an outside pet or your inside pet is an escape artist, this smart collar can monitor their whereabouts and activity levels—all from your phone.

Whistle 3 GPS Pet Tracker and Activity Monitor

If you've ever walked around the block shaking a treat container while calling out your fur baby's name, the Whistle 3 GPS Pet Tracker is here to ease your stress and pinpoint your pet's location all from an app on your phone. Even if your companion is beyond the Wi-Fi range, the device uses GPS and cellular technology to help track your pet anywhere in the U.S. And with a 7-day battery life, you'll be able to locate your pet 24/7 from the comfort of your home.

This activity tracker can be attached to any collar up to 1-inch wide, and it's lightweight—making it perfect for cats and dogs alike. Once you've set up the app and applied for a monthly subscription (options start at just $7), you'll be able to have peace of mind when letting your pet outside. Not only does this smart collar track your pet's location, but you can also set activity goals for your pet and monitor their progress.

Thousands of five-star reviewers agree that this is a "great little tracker". Plus, if you have a dog who loves to swim, this tracker has proven to be durable and waterproof.

Through your phone, you can also set up safe places (i.e. your home, a vacation home, a dog sitter). The Whistle 3 then uses advanced GPS and through a text, email, or app notification, will let you know when your pet leaves a designated safe place. Whether they're right down the street or 3,000 miles away, you (and anyone you wish to include on the app) will always know where your fur babies are.
