When we travel, we often get out of our normal routine and may not get our regular exercise. The same is true for our pets. But now you can keep track of your pet’s daily activity level with the Whistle Activity Monitor, whether at home or on the road (with or without your pet, because you can monitor his/her activity long distance). PetravelR™ admits to loving cool gadgets, and this one is really neat – sort of a canine Fitbit!
The Whistle Activity Monitor and connected app keep you close to your best friend by helping you create healthy habits, track progress, and stay in touch when you have to be apart. With the Whistle Activity Monitor, you can -
- Set a custom goal: Set a daily activity goal customized to your dog’s age, breed, and weight;
- Track progress: Learn when your dog is most active and the type and quality of exercise they’re getting;
- Stay connected: Whether you’re at work, on vacation, or out for the day, use Whistle to see what your dog is up to and who they’re with;
- Compare to similar dogs: Compare your dog’s daily activity and rest with similar pups to see if they’re on the right track.
The Whistle app is a central communication hub for you and everyone who cares for your dog. Think of the Whistle Community as your local dog park in your pocket. You can post photos and notes on the Community Board, and share moments, tips, and advice with a network of fellow dog owners.
You can also use the device to track your dog’s medication and health -
- Track medication: Never miss a dose by tracking when your dog takes a medication. Set reminders for ongoing treatments and vaccinations.
- Log food: Keep track of your pet’s nutrition through daily food logging to avoid over and underfeeding.
- Monitor health trends: Track your dog’s long-term health trends to detect even subtle changes. Get notifications for noteable changes that might require some extra attention.
The device has wireless data syncing via bluetooth and wifi and is compatible with Apple and Android devices. The 7+ day rechargeable battery lets you capture over a week’s worth of memories on a single charge.
The Whistle Activity Monitor has an adjustable strap and fits dogs over 10 pounds. Compatible with all collars. Shockproof, ruggedized, and waterproof, so your pup can swim, take a bath, or romp in the rain without worry.
