Looking to take jump to newer tracking system/ecollar

Recommended Posts

Keith

I'm researching replacing my Astro 220 with a newer system capable of syncing with a watch (need that too) and am looking for for real world experiences ... positive and negative with the Astro 320, 430, Alpha 100 and Pro 550 plus. One major consideration is cost of course. Any and all input is welcome. Thanks in advance !

I tried an Alpha 100. I didn’t like it as a training collar. It is okay for handling a broke dog where any correction is pretty much preordained.

I replaced my 220 with a 430 linked it to a Fenix 3 and could not be happier if you're familiar with the 220 you're going to like the 430 it is that similar.   Lot's of folks like the Alpha but unless you want a all in one collar you dont need to go that route and the Astro can be had cheaper.  I run 2 dogs on the Astro and have them on the watch the Astro rides in a pocket on the vest and the watch tells me everything I need to know.  You also do not need to get a Fenix as a lot of the other Garmin watches also link up.
