Whistle currently supports the following devices:

  • Apple iOS devices running iOS version 7.1 and later, including the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad
  • Android devices running Android OS version 4.0.3 and later

Tip: If you have more than one device, we suggest that you pair your Whistle Activity Monitor with the device you keep with you most often. This is because Whistle Activity Monitor uses Bluetooth to tell when your device is close to your pet's Whistle, and records this as a Presence for your pet's activity data.
