New Dog Collar Keeps You Connected to Fido All Day

This is a place holder image for bridge blog posts without an image selected.

Have you ever wondered what Fido is doing all day? Is he getting any exercise? Playing nice with the dog walker? Eating enough? Well, wonder no longer. A new Israeli-made dog collar and mobile app, Hachiko, is making constant connection with your canine companion a reality. Israel21c provides the details

Hachiko’s $39.99 Bluetooth-enabled waterproof clip-on, with a battery that lasts a year, measures the dog’s activities and transmits the data via a free iOS app to doggie’s parents and caregivers.

Not only does Hachiko show details of activities such as distance walked, time of walk, duration of walk and a map of the walk, it also generates voice messages about these activities – e.g., “Hey there! I just went with Bob the dog-walker for a romp in the park!”

There’s a timeline for adding and sharing photos and comments, and a way to keep track of intakes and outtakes (water, food, waste, treats, medicine). Based on what the dog is doing in real time, the app recommends relevant actions or knowledge segments. For example, if Fifi is home alone, Hachiko can send ideas to keep her entertained. DogTV, anyone?
