Jiobit- Part of the Morning Routine
This is my second post about Jiobit. See the first one here. This second post is more about our specific experience with the new clip and new covers. We have kept the Jiobit as part of our morning routine for months now. We brush teeth, brush hair, put on shoes and grab our Jiobits.
These trackers are a lifesaver for piece of mind. They don’t make your child more safe than you keeping an eye on them, but they do add a level comfort to your daily life. I like that I can check during the day to make sure my child is where they should be.
Just recently they redesigned the clip and sent us the new ones. The new clip holds onto thin fabrics much more securely. The only drawback is that it has these prongs in the end that caught my sons fingers the first time he removed the clip. Now, we take it off for him. Those new prongs are the main reason it grips so easily. That and the beveled area at the top that locks the fabric in place. I have finally figured out how to remove the clip to be able to more easily switch them. You really do have to push up and to the side while holding the bottom portion of the clip.
After having to page the trackers each morning to decide which one tracked which child we finally decided to purchase several different colored sleeves to put on the Jiobit tracking devices to know which one belongs to which child without having to use the ping function. The silicon sleeves are $7.99- $9.99 each.
I generally place the Jiobit tracking device on the inside of the pant's pocket or inside of the pant's waistband. For my daughter I have gotten into the habit of placing the Jiobit inside her underwear band when she is wearing a dress. The device is the size of a battery and easy to wear. She almost never complains about it until we get home and she just want to take everything off.
Overall, the app is very user friendly. I do have to keep it updated to run properly, but otherwise it runs smoothly. I highly recommend the Jiobit for busy moms and dads who need to keep track of quick moving children. So far I have been very happy with my choice to get a designated tracking device vs a wristband watch.
