Wearable tech has really started to take off over the last two years thanks in part to fitness trackers like the Nike Fuelband and FitBit. But while those companies are worrying about humans, a new company called Whistle is launching a new fitness tracker specifically for mans best friend.
The Whistle Activity Monitor is a little on-collar device that will track all of your dog’s activities, including rest, walks, playtime, and other activities. It’s kind of like a FitBit for dogs. The device comes with a slick iOS app too that lets you check in on your dogs stats throughout the day no matter where you are.
Sounds kind of crazy to buy a pet its own activity tracker, but when you consider most people only take there dog to the vet once every 3 years, Whistle will probably help you keep your pet in shape and enjoy a couple extra years together.
Here’s a video of how Whistle works:
The device is waterproof, and you only have to recharge it every 10-Days via USB. And to make sure all of the data collected is actually being used, you can send your vet health reports right from the app.
Whistle’s iPhone-only for now, but an Android app is on the way. You can pre-order it over on Whistle’s website for $99 with an ship date targeted for late-July.
