Who doesn’t love a puppy? Moreover, don’t we want that puppy to lose its groove, so they need exercise just like a human. Just as people wear their FitBit, your dog can wear their very own FitBark Wireless Dog Activity Monitor that can monitor their activity. They were introduced this year at CES and are now available in Canada for pre-order on Best Buy or the Future Shop websites or in the stores. They are available in five colors – Light Blue, Dark Grey, Hot Pink, True Red and Emerald Greenâ€”and are priced at $99.99. The release date is March 27 and free delivery is available.
FitBark easily fits on any dog collar and transmits to the app on your smartphone via Bluetooth – the FitBark is waterproof and houses an accelerometer and battery that they claim will last 14 days between charges. The FitBark will monitor your dog’s activity and turns that activity to BarkPoints. Tracking their BarkPoints gives you a means to track their progress, giving you a unique insight into understanding your dog’s health. Do you notice changes in their behavior? You can now have an educated discussion and make better-informed decisions with your vet. The app for your Android smartphone is ready to download now in the Google Play Store.
FitBark is so easy to operate – Attach to your dog’s collar so it works for any dog size – Pair it with your Bluetooth on your smartphone and seamlessly track their every movement 24/7 – Then take action based on the insights into their health and behavior. Some dogs are very active and when you run with them, the entire ‘family’ can get healthier and you can monitor your health together. Some dogs must be boarded or go to doggie daycare…FitBark allows you to have peace of mind as you monitor their activity. Some dogs have medical problems and FitBark will allow you to monitor their progress and see how your dog reacts to new medicines or treatments.
FitBark is also a great tool if you own a Pet Business and need to monitor the dogs under your care. It is a mobile platform that can: Monitor Dog Activity – provide a Wi-Fi Base Station – Mobile App (iOS & Android) – provide Web User Portal – and a Health & Lifestyle Canine API. FitBark says, “Our goal is to further the bond between man and his best friend by sharing our data sets with pet care professionals who make the lives of our dogs richer.”
