Pod is the smallest and lightest GPS tracker plus activity monitor for dogs and cats designed to be attached to any size collar. It lets you locate your pet on demand, monitor their activity and record adventures on a smartphone or computer. Our newer generation Pod 2 has WiFi capability, which helps deliver faster positions and offers the ability to locate indoors. Pod service subscription is free the first year and $49 following annual renewal. The Pod depends on your 2G coverage so make sure to check your address against the coverage checker tool on our website.
The “Find” button allows you to request your pet’s current position and display it on a map in real time, no matter if they’re outdoors or indoors. Pod works across the globe in 175 countries and has no set range. You can be in New York and locate your pet in LA thanks to the GPS, WiFi and cellular network capabilities of the Pod!
Setting up your “Safe zone” enables you to protect your pet with a virtual fence that sends you an escape alert when they run away. This allows you to go about your day with the peace of mind knowing that you’ll be notified if your pet leaves the designated area.
Pod Automatically records your pet’s activity level (rest, walk and run), allowing you to monitor their health and fitness. You can even set daily goals!
Record up to 8 hours of your pet’s secret life with continuous tracking then sync with the app via bluetooth upon their return.
Not only is Pod the smallest and lightest fully waterproof tracker, it uses interchangeable and rechargeable batteries that last up to 6 days each (depending on usage). Pod service subscription is free the first year and only $49 following annual renewal.
1 in 3 pets go missing in their lifetime. That’s more than 10 million pets per year and we are here to make sure your pet isn’t one of them! It’s important to us that all pet owners are able to have the peace of mind knowing they can locate their pets at any time and will be notified if there is an escape.
Describe your product in 3 words.
Pet GPS Tracker
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
A few years ago Sebastian Langton went through the devastating loss of his very best friend, Rango. He was known as “the coolest cat on the planet” and was Seb’s companion through many adventures. After going through the pain of losing Rango, Seb was determined to find a way to prevent other pet owners from going through the same feeling of pain. The idea for Pod was born: a vision to develop the best pet tracker in the world.
What makes your product special?
The Pod Tracker is everything a pet owner could want. It works around the globe, it’s the smallest and lightest in the world, and most importantly the founder/CEO has the customer’s best interests at heart from personal experience! Pod Trackers also offers personalised customer support and service, and offers both an upgrade and replacement program. It’s hard to find a company that genuinely cares about the customer as much as this one does.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
We love the warm fuzzy feeling we get every time we hear a success story of how our little product has saved someone’s family member, best friend and companion from tragedy. Not all products and companies get to do good while building a business. We’ve also had the opportunity to work with local rescues and pet organisations to truly understand how we can do bigger things to help pets locally and all over the world with the will and power of this company.
