This has enabled the Tagg pet trackers to widen its reach to many more households in the US. With such technology right in the pet owner’s fingertips, their vision to prevent the 10 million pets lost annually is becoming a reality. The beauty of the Tagg Pet Tracker is that you define the area where your pets are allowed.

The Tagg tracker is designed for dogs and cats over 10 lbs. and is a small, lightweight and durable device that attaches securely to an existing collar. Built to withstand all the running, digging and jumping of a pet’s busy day, the tracker is meant to be worn at all times, even while swimming. The long-lasting battery can last up to 30 days, but actual battery life will vary based on usage patterns. Convenient features have been built into the compact, stylish and comfortable tracker, including battery recharge notifications and a trip button, which allows pet and owner to take walks, car rides or travel without sending an alert.Tagg—The Pet Tracker is a trademark of Snaptracs Inc. Qualcomm is a registered trademark of Qualcomm Incorporated.

The Tagg Master Kit, which includes all hardware and one full year of service, is $199.99 and has an anticipated September ship date. Individual trackers for additional pets in the same family are also available.Tagg is not a microchip. A microchip is a passive electronic device that is placed under your pet's skin to help with identification when a pet is found. Instead, each Tagg system consists of a lightweight device, or tracker, that fits on top of your pet's collar and communicates with a base station, which is also used to charge the tracker's battery.Tagg is a set of devices that were created out of our love for pets. They not only help people find their lost pets but prevent those pets from straying in the first place. They also has an activity tracking feature that gives you a unique insight into your pet's health and well-being.The comprises of two pieces: a base station and the tracker. The base station does double duty as both a charger for the pet tracker and then also as a communications device. I assume that as long as the base station remains in contact with the pet trackers, it handles the tracking of the pets. The cellular data and GPS on the tracker are used in the event that the base station loses connectivity with the tracker. At that point, the tracker begins to communicate directly with the Tagg servers. When using multiple Tagg trackers like we do, they all communicate with the same base station. I assume that the primary reason behind this configuration is that while near your base station, battery usage is diminished since it’s not having to use the cellular data. Similarly, it probably helps save some money on their cellular bills, which they’re passing along to Tagg subscribers starting at $6.95 per month for monitoring.
