Pet TechEveryone in the family can now get on board with the wearable gadget trend, even the four-legged family members. In this Tech Minute, CNET's Kara Tsuboi reports on gadgets that track your pet's health, activity levels and location.
The fitbark is a small wearable device that clips onto your pets collar in order to track the number of minutes he spends playing, walking, and resting. Sync the device with the fit bark app to track your pooches patterns. It cost ninety nine dollars and will start shipping later this spring. Also ninety nine dollars is the whistle, it works in a similar fashion as the fit bark with its own app and graphic display of your pets activity levels. The whistle app also acts as a social network for owners who care to share their pets stats and photos with each other. If you're interested in tracking your dog's location, the $129 waterproof gibi is for you. Through the app set geo fences and alerts for when your four-legged friends cross the boundaries. And finally, we hate for the kitty cats out there to feel left out Tailio is a gadget that turns your cats litter box into a health monitoring system. It measures weight and litter box activity and sends updates to your phone. Tailio costs one hundred and seventy nine dollars and will ship this summer.
