    We live in small town South Dakota. My son has Down syndrome and has a tendency to wander. I got the Jiobit specifically because we ate headed to Dallas for a convention and was terrified he would wander off in the crowds and be lost. I felt so much better and was much more relaxed knowing I would be able to track him.We now use it everyday so I can track to make sure he gets on and off the bus and to daycare after school. I don’t have to worry that he’s not getting to where he needs to be.Recently we need to use customer service and what a great group these people are. Quick, responsive, helpful. Some of the best online customer service I’ve ever had.Highly recommend this company.

    I use this tracker for my father who has Alzheimers. I attach it to his keys and I am able to know when he leaves, returns and where he is going. I use the geofencing to make sure he is in a safe place. Overall the battery is great and the app is easy to use. The only concern is that you can’t refresh the device and sometimes the accuracy off. There has been times where I had difficulty pinpointing where he was.

    After purchasing the device and confronting some issues at first, customer support was able to hear my concerns and fixed the issue, resulting in a positive outcome.

    Update 6/9/2020: we had been led to believe we were special somehow and would continue to help beta test and improve this product. I have not heard from Jiobit in months so I’m moving on. I think there is value in this product, but it is not something we need personally, and I’m saddened by the lack of contact from the company. I wish you the best Jiobit!Update 11/15/2019: several things have happened since our initial purchase.We tried a second unit the company claimed was different from the initial beta (?) we were supplied by mistake. I have to take their word for it because I can’t see inside the device, but it has not functioned differently in any way from the first unit.Fees: they have revamped their pricing and fees so things no longer seem shady or undisclosed.Bluetooth: still works randomly, no changes there, see below.Battery life: explained in some of the other reviews, but with moderate use it still lasts about a day and a half.UI: very simple iPhone app, there are some quirks that bother me and things I wish they’d add or change, but it has never crashed or done anything unexpected.I wish this was something I could bundle with a phone bill or another subscription. We don’t find ourselves using it enough to justify yet another monthly subscription, but others may. It did give us peace of mind on a couple trips, however we don’t find ourselves using it day to day.Bottom line: it is far better than other available options as long as you understand its limitations. Customer service has been excellent so if you read a review claiming otherwise, my opinion is the customer may have been unreasonable. I have had nothing but positive interactions with support.Increased from 1 to 3 stars.Previous thoughts:We have had this for a couple weeks and recently put it through a real world test on a short trip out of town.Battery life is *not* up to a week, that is completely misleading. With moderate use, ours lasted about a day on a full charge. And this is a brand new unit as of May 2019. Edit: using live tracking drains the battery very quickly, perhaps without using this feature it lasts longer but what good is a device attached to a kidnapped toddler that drains its battery within hours? That aside, live tracking was very accurate in our experience.One of the main selling points for us was the mobile fence. It relies on Bluetooth and should be easy to use, but in practice the alerts go off at random. At times it would trigger when my child was holding my hand, other times when he was 50’ or more away, and sometimes not at all. Setting the max distance did not have any practical effect. Edit: tech support pretty much admitted this is a beta feature and would be constantly improving.We want to love this, but it doesn’t live up to expectations.Update: we are returning ours. The features we wanted didn’t work, the features we needed drain the battery, and the company is not up front with their fees. Even if you go month to month to avoid getting locked into a two year contract, there’s a $3/mo fee to keep the SIM active. That was not mentioned to us, and if it was disclosed it was not in a visible location. Their rep attempted to shift the blame for this to Amazon.I will note they were quick to reverse any and all charges and Amazon is processing the return inside 30 days, so we are not out anything. Still thoroughly disappointed, however. Hopefully, this will be a worthwhile device in the near future.

    I bought this tracker to be able to track down my son, in case he should suddenly run away from us, when we are out.As the owner of a software company that develops software for transportation and data collection on the road, I know that small sized trackers are very difficult to make. On one side you need as a minimum a built in data cellphone module to be able to send frequent updated positions over the internet, and a built in gps receiver to be able to get the childs position from satellites.On the other side you want the tracker to be extremely small in size and light weight.We have used this tracker now for a month in 3 different countries with very good results and we have had a very long battery life between charges, at least a week. I am extremely impressed by the Jiobit, the free app and the battery life of the Jiobit.However, it is important to fully understand how this unnatural long battery life is achieved:- When the child is within proximity of your phone, the Jiobit switches to a power saving bluetooth technology. Obviously a small child like ours will be within our proximity most of the time. However in the app you can also invite other people into a “Care Team”, for example grand parents, siblings etc. For bigger children the care team can even include the childs own cell phone. As long as the child is within proximity (30 meters or so) of a member of the care team, battery consumption is extremely low.If the child is suddenly missing in a crowded place, you can go to the app and remote activate a siren on the tracker, so you can hear where your child is. There is also an indicator in the app telling you how close you are to the child. This is efficient for indoor places where gps signals won’t work and in also crowded places outdoor.If the child is to far away from you or any other member of the care team, the Jiobit automatically switches to the more power consuming cell phone data/gps system, where you can track the child all over the world, no matter how far away from the child you are. In this mode the Jiobit will work for about 1.5 to 2 days if no other power consuming settings have been made.However in the data cell phone/gps mode, there are also ways to save energy in the app:- You can mark Trusted Places on a map, so when the child is in kinder garden for example, it will save battery life until the child leaves the kinder garden area.- If the child is in the same spot for a longer period of time, Jiobit will inform the app, that it will stop sending updates until the child moves again to save battery.- You can teach your home wifi to Jiobit, so as long as Jiobit is within reach of your wifi, it will also save battery life.The tracker comes with a strong “claw” to put the tracker on clothes without it falling off. As an accessory you can buy a magnetic lock pin (a la shop theft tags on clothes), so the child won’t be able to remove the tracker.All in all absolutely THE BEST small tracker on the market within the limits of todays technology.
