The new Halo will fit cats with a neck size as small as 16cm/6ins and has led indicators (GSM/GPRS/GPS) and on/off button
The PawTrax Halo - Keeping track of your little Angels
Still the smallest and lightest Real Time GPS collar for cats - at just 22.7g almost half the weight of similar products
What do I need?
1. The Halo comes fitted with a GiffGaff (O2) sim or you can select to supply your own sim. This must be a Nano sized sim and 2G compatible. The GiffGaff sim will roam in EU but needs to be activated and used in UK first. Other GiffGaff conditions apply when outside UK
(We can also supply it with a PAYG Global Roaming sim installed)
2. Choose your collar design.
3. Do you want the tracking platform? Add optional Tracking Platform to your order (see bottom of page) - or just try for 1 month free and select later.
With the platform you can track in realtime at intervals chosen by you rather than just having a location sent on demand as an sms to your mobile. You will see a Paw print icon moving in realtime on a map you can also see historic tracks. You will also be able to set up geo-fences/zones and get alerted if breached.
We give you 1 month free and you can either decide after that one month to continue or buy another 12 months now - see bottom of page ------------------------------------------------------
More info This Halo locator/tracker has been designed specifically for cats.
It is light, sleek and low profile, being just 8mm at its thickest point
Length is 8.5cm (excluding collar loops) - 22mm wide
Curved to follow the cats neck and flexible in the centre for added comfort
Weighs just 22.7g - the lightest cat tracker available.
Securely fits to collar (no clips/silicon cases/pouches)
Suitable for cats with neck size 16cm and above (6 ins and above)
With a reported 3000 cats going missing every week in the UK we felt that the primary function should be to locate your cat on demand.
This is easily achieved using your mobile phone. The Halo will send you a text message on demand with a Google map link.
You can then, if required, switch it to tracking mode and track at intervals determined by you on your computer or mobile device using the optional tracking platform.
10 min update intervals will give about 24 - 36 hours tracking time between charges In standby (sms mode) it will last approx 5-6 days.
Because the Halo uses GSM as well as GPRS you should still be able to obtain a location by text if there is no GPRS (data) connectivity, providing it can get a GPS fix.
Your Halo comes with
1 months free access to the optional tracking platform** Beastie Band Collar Charger (UK Only - Outside UK will need to supply own USB wall charger) Charger Cable Hi-Viz Reflective 3M strips Spare charging socket cover PAYG Sim Card or supply your own 2g sim
** then just £25 per year (for 1st device + £5 per each additonal device) to continue with optional tracking (GPRS/Data), rather than just locate on demand by sms
All GPS devices have their limitations please check out our T&C's here before purchasing
The Beastie Band collars we supply with the Halo are classed as safety collars and can easily be adjusted to length. They are made from a very light, soft and comfortable material (not an elastic which can tighten) that stretches along its whole length and, according to customer reviews, are one of the most secure and safest cat collars on the market.
They are available in various designs and colours, some glow in the dark. We reserve the right to substitute the collar with another design if your chosen one is not available.
Cost per sms is 5p. When using the optional platform it's 5p/MB (approx 1500-2000 location updates) - GiffGaff rates may change. Some sms messages sent by the Halo count as 2 by the operator
Alternatively if you expect your PawTrax to send a huge amount of texts or data then the £5 goodybag would be a good alternative.
PAYG Global Roaming sim (worldwide - where 2G available)
Our Global Roaming Sims are not tied to any single network and will roam between multiple networks. This means that if one particular network has poor coverage at a location your roaming sim will switch to another network to keep your PawTrax connected.
For example, as the PawTrax tracker moves around the country it may encounter “black spots” or locations where one particular network does not have 2G coverage. In such a situation, SIM cards that only use one network would lose a connection so would not be able to send location information.
With roaming SIMs, this does not happen because the SIM will switch to another network to maintain the connection and keep your data flowing. Please note: even with the roaming sim a 2G GSM/GPRS signal is required.
Rates for UK and Europe (plus VAT)
We try to keep things simple with one flat rate across Europe and other zones. In the UK and Europe data costs £0.10 per MB (each location message is approx 500 bytes only) and SMS £0.07 per SMS. For full details of costs/countries Rates Table
You can supply your own sim if you wish. It needs to be micro size and 2G compatible
