The Worlds smallest and lightest 4G GPS Cat Tracker
Currently only available to UK Customers
What is it?
The new PawTrax SMART GPS Tracker will enable you to locate and track your cat. It is small (36mm x 17mm x 20.8mm) and light (19g) and is waterproof. You will know when your cat leaves home, where he's gone and which direction you need to go to find him.
How does it work?
It obtains its location using four locating technologies (GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and LBS - accuracy will depend on a number of factors) and uses 4G (NB IOT/LTE M) to communicate its location to your smartphone via an app. Your tracker will come complete with an IOT enabled sim card.
Are there any ongoing costs?
Your collar uses an IOT sim to send its location data to our servers/app. There is a cost involved in sending this data. Your collar comes with an activate sim giving you free data for 90 days. It then costs just £15 per year for unlimited use.
What is 4G NB IOT/LTE M?
Also known as Internet Of Things. This is a low power communications technology used to transmit small amounts of data using lower powered devices. NB IOT is currently being rolled out in the UK by Vodafone and is usually available from any Vodafone 4G tower. LTE M is being rolled out in the UK by O2 and is currently available in the East of the UK. See coverage map in gallery.
What makes it SMART?
When your cat is home the tracker connects to the base station (also the charging station) and/or your home Wi-Fi. The app will notify you that your cat is at home and will send a location update either every hour or every 2 hours depending on whether your cat is moving or not.
When you cat leaves home the app will alert you and you will get a location update every 15 mins or 30 mins depending on whether your cat is moving or not.
Can I Track more frequently?
Yes. When you cat is outside and moving you can either request a one off location via the app or an update every 5-10 secs for a period of 5 mins. Please be aware that the tracker will consume a lot more power under live tracking mode.
Can I use my existing collar?
The tracker will easily fit to any collar or you can choose to purchase one of our popular Beastie Band collars. Please ensure you use a good quality safety collar one with a very secure and robust safety clip. A good one is the ROGZ collar. These have an adjustable breakaway buckle that can be set to a higher level of force thereby compensating for the additional weight of a tracker.
How is it charged?
The tracker is placed on a charging station which is plugged into a standard USB wall charger. There is an LED on the front that is red when charging and turns to blue when fully charged. Your collar will come with a charging cable but not the USB wall charger. Any standard Type A USB wall charger will work.
How long does the battery last between charges?
Depending on usage, the battery lasts between 2 to 8 days. You will receive a low battery alert via the app when it requires recharging.
The tracker comes with a status LED that can also help you locate your cat in the dark.

Smartphone APP (Katch-U)
As of 24/6/21 the app is only available on IOS. Android version is still being reviewed by Google awaiting release. In the interim we will configure it to use a generic app that will provide the main functions. Please let us know if you use Android. Once the app is available for Android we will let you know and give you simple instructions on how to reconfigure the collar.
