There’s no exact answer. But the battery lasts the longest when your pet is in range of WiFi. Your app will alert you when your battery is low. We suggest charging when it dips below 25%.

No, the device needs to be connected to the AT&T network to accurately track your pet’s location.

Whistle Go Explore 2.0 is an assisted GPS device, using information from both AT&T cell towers and satellites to pinpoint your pet’s location. To balance between useful updates and long battery life, Whistle Go Explore 2.0 does not work in 100% real-time. But you’ll get alerts within 15 seconds.

Nope, that’s what your subscription plan covers. Whistle uses the AT&T 4G LTE network, but you can use the Whistle app on any smartphone, no matter your plan.

    My dog is 2 and although he had the run of the 100 acre farm for 8 months and knew where home ws he became selective when he would return and at night was completely a CATCH ME IF YOU CAN dog. He is a mixed breed and obviously has hound bloodlines because he is hot on a scent when it presents itself. Enter Whistle . I now know where to look for him and also where to call. We are slowly getting the call and return command down. I have combined it with a stim collar and together I am much more confident in letting him out on the farm. It does sometime take 3-5 minutes to locate him at the start of a session so that is concerning at times . While AT & T is not perfect in my location ( and actually a rep told me it would not work) iIt has worked but has a lag in initial connnection. I have it on the quickest tracking it can be set on 30 seconds. In looking at the competition it appears that most also work on this network so I don't feel like there is anything better in my case. I love that the tag comes off to recharge not a collar.

    Whistle is great! Having Verizon back as a carrier would be even greater.

    I have used Whistle for almost 8 years and think it is great for just the peace of mind I get knowing my runner dog has it on. If I remember correctly,

    in the beginning the Whistle used both Verizon and AT&T as carriers. While AT&T works well in most areas, it just so happens that we are building a house in a rural area where AT&T is almost non existent. In the same area Verizon is much better. For our needs having Verizon back would be great. Other than this change, Whistle is great!

    I Love it!! Not only is it a tracker but it keeps track of so many other things like his activity level. I love that when he is outside the boundaries it texts everyone’s phones. This makes me feel very secure that I know where he is.

    Whistle Go Explore Tracker works great for our cat

    The tracker works great for our cat we found years ago. He was a stray and we tried to keep him inside, but he gets such high anxiety that he started to pee on the floor like he had a bladder infection. We invested in a Tracker, as sometimes he would stay out all night, and we didn't know where he was. The tracker is amazing and small enough to use on a cat. It shows where he is on the map, if he's not within the range of our home (or circle). It has come in handy so many times. If you are away from your home circle and trying to find your pet, it has a light you can turn on the tracker and it will blink fast or slow so you are able to see him in the dark. Wonderful and we love it!!!

    I Like It!

    I'm happy with the Go Explore 2.0 Smart Tracker, it's led me to my pup, Zorro, a couple of times after he's escaped. My only worry is we get poor cell phone reception here at the house, so Whistle really doesn't work until I get a bit away from here. The weekly Wellness Report is kind of neat too.
