"I found the Jiobit could locate my child and pet with an uncanny degree of accuracy."
WIRED Magazine reviewed Jiobit for kids and for pets, and found it to be "the best way to keep tabs on your pets and kids."
The writer talks about giving her child more freedom using Jiobit:
"As a parent, it can be hard to know when to grab your children and when to pull back. But on a recent sunny Saturday morning, in a mostly empty park, I decided to try something different. When my 4-year-old took off down the trail, I resisted the urge to sprint after her. Instead, I opened the Jiobit app and turned on Live Mode.
I watched as the little dot got about 400 feet away from me, walked in uncertain circles at a fork in the trail, then turned around. As it turns out, a little bit of freedom goes a long way."
Many parents are concerned with data privacy, and here's how the writer discusses Jiobit's security:
"If you’ve ever wondered why you would shell out for something like a Jiobit instead of, say, clipping a Tile Pro on your kid’s shoe, it’s probably because the location monitor has stronger security protocols. For example, the Jiobit has a dedicated security chip that meets the standards set by the US military; without this chip, a device can’t access the Jiobit servers."
Overall, the writer spoke about how easy the experience was, and how it can benefit parents:
Maybe it doesn’t track how many calories my dog burns, like the Whistle 3, but it’s much nicer to use.
