About Waggit Health Tech Features
Waggit is a smart collar for pets that functions much like a wrist activity tracker does for humans. In addition to tracking activity and sleep the Waggit Collar helps pet owners notice changes in their pet’s behavior which can be indicators of illness or pain.
Health And Well Being Alerts
This feature delivers real time alerts to the pet owner’s cell phone alerting them to changes in their pet’s wellness like changes in body temperature and respiratory rate. Users can also set different health related goals for their pet and get updates when their pet has achieved these goals like levels of activity helping keep them fit and healthy.
Overtime the Waggit collar starts to recognize what are normal vitals for each dog. By tracking vital signs like heart rate, body temperature, and respiratory rate the Waggit system will help pet owners see their pet’s vitals at a quick glance helping them notice changes which can be signs of poor health. If something seems out of the ordinary with resting vitals the Waggit collar ill automatically send a notice to the synced cell phone.
Sleeping positions can be great indicators of a dog’s health or what may be causing them pain. By using the Waggit collar pet owners will be able to see daily body position charts helping track how their pet chooses to sleep and rest helping to reveal potential health conditions.
Just like humans, when dogs do not feel well their sleep can be significantly affected. This feature gives great insight into if a dog is restless at night what may be causing the discomfort. And just like activity trackers the Waggit Collar keeps track of hours and minutes of deep sleep as well as periods of wakefulness.
This feature tracks pets using GPS technology and is perfect for helping to find a lost pet. Additionally this feature allows pet owners to set a virtual fence on a map and receive alerts when their pet has crossed those boundaries.
Activity And Bonding
Physical activity is important to help pets stay healthy and support a well-functioning cardiovascular system as well as keep weight within normal ranges.
Pet owners can use this feature to track their dog’s intake of calories and compare it to their daily calories burned allowing them to adjust serving sizes according to fitness levels.
