We call this GPS horse tracker "Rusty's tracker", because we can now see where Rusty, our retired endurance horse is at any time of the day or night. This is the first tracker that we have evaluated which is rugged enough to be used on a horse halter. The tracker body has slots through which we threaded though a strap on the halter, and Rusty wears it all day, every day. Charging is via a clip-on connector, so no covers to remove, making this GPS horse tracker ultra-rugged. Just ask Rusty.

Accuracy: Your horse's location will be reported to an accuracy of between 10m and 50m, depending on conditions such as signal strength.
Waterproof Level: Weatherproof but not waterproof, that is, it can handle rain and mud, but I wouldn't recommend letting your horse go swimming with it.
Audio monitoring: You can listen in via your phone to what your horse is doing. It is quite neat hearing them chomp grass.
Geofence alarm:You can set up the device to send an alarm if your horse leaves a predefined area.
Charging: Charging is via a clip-on charging connector, removing the need to expose any covers.
Battery life: This is highly dependant on update time. With 1 minute between updates, the battery lasts around half a day. With a longer time between updates, the battery lasts 24 hours. I would recommend recharging it daily, just like your phone.The device will warn of low battery via the downloadable app.
