Ever misplaced your FitBark? Did Fido manage to get his collar off and now it’s lost somewhere in the backyard?

A few apps are coming to the rescue. The two most useful that we’ve found are LightBlue Explorer (iOS) and BLE Scanner (Android) – both of which are free in their respective app stores.

Both of these apps are designed to locate missing Bluetooth LE (low energy) devices – which means it can locate a missing FitBark but also any other low energy Bluetooth device, like most human activity trackers. These apps will not accurately identify other Bluetooth devices, only low energy devices.

To be able to find your FitBark, it needs to have battery life and be within range (about 30 feet or 9 meters). If you still cannot find your FitBark after using these apps, please reach out to customer support and we will be more than happy to help.

Thanks for Dale Graham of llamarada.com for the nice tip! Neither Dale nor FitBark have any affiliation with the makers of these tracking apps. We just found them extremely useful and thought you might as well.
