Xiaomi brings the PETBIT, a water-resistant dog tracker


Xiaomi is still on a path of non-stop destruction, and now they’re here for your dogs. The latest product from the Chinese startup is the PETBIT. It’s a water and shock resistant dog tracker to help you keep track of your possibly wet dog. Truly, Xiaomi is a company after all of our hearts, and the hearts of our best friends.

The PETBIT utilizes the revolutionary and new NB-IOT technology. What this means is that the PETBIT uses a very tiny amount of data over long periods of time. The use of this technology allows for better battery life for the device. Something great when you consider how often and how long you may lose your wet dog.

In true Xiaomi fashion, the tracker even comes with its own application for your smartphone. The app works exactly as you’d expect. It shows you the location of your canine pal via GPS, as well as the route they take and the amount of kilometres they’ve gone. If other dogs use the PETBIT, you can also see them on your application.

On top of that, let’s say you lose your doggo. The collar that comes with the PETBIT actually has a QR code that help other people retrieve your mutt and bring him back to you. It’s really just solid item all around. So, how much does this doggy accessory cost? Well, the PETBIT currently costs $31 over in China, and it’s unfortunately not available anywhere else at the moment.
