I can just use Apple AirTag to track my kid, right?

AirTags are made for keys. Jiobit is made for the important stuff.

AirTag Vs Jiobit

Jiobit has its own secure connection to the internet and GPS.

This means it doesn't need to be tethered to any hub or other device. Jiobit can always send its accurate, real-time location.

Jiobit vs Airtag

AirTags don’t have an internet connection of their own.

This means that unless they are close enough to an internet-connected Apple device, AirTags don't know their own location.

Even Apple makes it clear the AirTag is not for kids or pets.

"When I asked [Kaiann Drance, Apple’s VP of worldwide iPhone product marketing] about parents using AirTags to track their small children (such as during an outing at an amusement park) or pets (we know you’re up to something shady, Fluffy) she was quick to stress that

[Apple] designed the AirTag to track items, not people or pets."

Jiobit vs. everybody

There are a lot of location trackers out there, and they all pretty much claim to be the lightest or the smallest or the bestest in some way.

Is Jiobit perfect? Not quite. But, we'll be the first to make a fair comparison.
