Xiaomi is one of the leaders on the market of fitness trackers, thanks to very popular Mi Band 2. Some days ago it released new generation Mi Band 3 with updated design. However, in this article we want to talk about another new tracker called Xiaomi PetBit. It is designed for pets.
Xiaomi PetBit: Design
Xiaomi PetBit is a GPS-tracker, which allows you to monitor the location of your pet. The device has a form of a clip for the collar, so you can easily attach it to any collar.
The dimensions are 5.04 × 4.6 × 1.83 cm, and the product weighs only 26 grams. You can buy it in black and white colors.
You should note that PetBit is not even a collar with GPS, it’s just a separate module that can be fixed for anything using a special clip. According to Xiaomi, it is very convenient to attach it for any collar, and thanks to a special fastening, it will not fall off even when the domestic pet shows great activity.
This device allows you to monitor in real time where the animal is. It is designed to save animals, if they disappear.

The device even has a special LED indicator, which makes the dog noticeable even at night. The manufacturer integrated a special algorithm into this gadget, which takes into account the behavior of 200 breeds of dogs. The owner can look at the intended route of movement of his pet. If the pet is lost, its owner can send a message on the tracker with QR code. If someone find the dog, it can scan QR code, and contact with the owner of the animal.
