If you have a dog, you probably love it and treat it like part of your family. However, unlike babies who learn to talk after a year or two, your dog can never really communicate with you. That can be frustrating, especially when he doesn’t seem to be feeling well. To remedy that, Voyce, a top 10 finalist in Last Gadget Standing at 2014 CES, enables you to track your dogs health, well being and more.
You might have heard about Wearable Technology and and fitness monitors that people are wearing to track their activity. Voyce is a special dog collar that monitors your dog for:
- Heart rate
- Respiratory rate
- calories burned
- trends in the dog’s behavior, diet, exercise, and habits
You will be able to see all this data from computer, phone or tablet. Another great feature of having this data is being able to share it with your veterinarian (and your friends and family). And the best part of having this information is that you might finally be able to understand your dog better than ever before.
VOYCE was developed in collaboration with leading bio-medical engineers, dog experts, and Cornell University, one of the nation’s top veterinary institutions.
“Imagine if we could understand why our dogs act in certain ways, what they’re feeling and when they need something from us. Imagine if we didn’t have to guess anymore – if assumptions and uncertainty were replaced by knowledge and insight. This is what we have set out to do with VOYCETM,” said Jeff Noce, President of i4C Innovations.
Another benefit of being part of the Voyce community is getting access to exclusive content from some of leading veterinarians in the country. And subscribers will also receive tips, important reminders, and notifications covering various categories including nutrition, behavior, training, health and lifestyle.
The Voyce should be available to go on the market this summer. If you go to the Voyce website, you can put in your name and email and they will let you know when the Voyce tracker is available for purchase. I don’t currently have any pets, but I have had in the past and I think this is an amazing technology for a dog owner to have.
