Unlike the Whistle, the WonderWoof BowTie does not have a GPS and, therefore it does not track your dog’s location in real time. Therefore, if you are worried about your dog running off somewhere or getting lost, the Whistle may be a better choice for you. However, if your dog pretty much stays by you or on leash the whole time, and you are looking for an activity monitor only, then the WonderWoof is a much better choice — for one thing, you save the monthly subscription fees that is charged by most of the GPS enabled trackers!!
The WonderWoof is similar to the Fitbark in many ways, so you may often hear about a WonderWoof vs Fitbark comparison. Which one of these two you should go with is really a personal choice. The WonderWoof seems more stylish and chic to many, with its Bowtie appearance. Also, the WonderWoof app is more gamified, with the goal of earning 10 dog bones every day for your dog. The Fitbark, however, has a higher satisfaction rating from consumers, and really does do a stellar job in tracking your dog’s activity.
