Activity trackers are everywhere these days. Step outside and within minutes someone sweaty will jog past you brandishing a hi-tech looking wristband. We love setting ourselves goals, monitoring our progress and generally keeping nice and healthy – so why shouldn't we give our animals this same luxury? The truth is we should, and now we can with the MOTION Pet Activity Tracker
Lightweight, rugged and 100% weatherproof; this neat little device easily clips onto your pet's collar and uses four different internal sensors to track its movements 24/7. Unlike a lot of fitness trackers, the battery lasts for over a week so you won't find yourself having to constantly recharge it.
Once you've entered your animal's vital statistics into the free app you can use it to set them a daily goal of Pet Points – these are calculated by taking into account steps, movements, playtime and additional information provided by the sensors. Have you been grossly over-walking your hapless hound? Maybe your cat is even lazier than you thought possible? Or perhaps your goggle-eyed Japanese Chin is actually the picture of the health? All the answers lie within this intelligent pet accessory.
The integrated high-resolution display allows you to easily see your pets progress at a glance, or you can dive into the app for a much more detailed view, full of rich graphical information. But best of all the app features a worldwide pet activity ranking so you can see how your beloved creature compares.
