Track Your Cats with Wearables Tech
As we are all getting accustomed to wearing diverse gadgets such as activity tracker and smartwatches, it is important not to forget our four-legged friends. If you own a cat, you know how stressful it can be when your beloved pet starts exploring and it nowhere to be seen for a few days. In order to help you keep your cat safe and close to me, we bring you an overview of smart collars and tracking devices for cats.
As cats can, unfortunately, get lost easily, using Pawscout is a very smart and affordable way to keep tabs on your pet. This compact, round pendant is practical, lightweight and uses a standard watch battery you can change yourself. It connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth and uses radar-style search to enable you to locate your pet within a 200 ft radius. A customizable app is available in the app store for you to receive notifications and location at any time. You can get Pawscout in a variety of designs along with a custom engraved nameplate.
Tabcat is easy to use tracker designed to protect your cat. This small pebble-like gadget gives you audio and visual notifications by using radio frequency. A small pendant is placed on your pet’s collar and, while in range (it has a 400 ft range), a small handset directs you towards your cat. Using sounds, you can also train your cat to come to you when called, as the handset releases diverse sound notifications that your pet hears directly on the pendant.
This high tech, beautifully designed smart collar is designed to track your four-legged friend’s activity. Combined with a free app, it sends notifications not only regarding the location but also well-being. If there is something wrong with your pet, the app will alert you instantly as it reads the cat’s movements and is able to recognise games, rest and sleep, along with alerting you if your cat is in danger.
If your kitty is a genuine explorer, you might want to try the Catstacam. This cat wearable brought to you by Whiskas is a small camera that you put on the collar and it enables you to get photos of all your cat’s movements. It shoots six photographs every minute and uploads them to Instagram when it connects to Wifi. The camera is motion activated.
Pawtrack is a GPS tracking collar designed specifically for cats. Lightweight and safe, it uses GPS that works in 171 countries and records a location every 10 minutes. It also offers live tracking on demand. The information is saved on the collar and transferred to the app when your pet comes home.
Unlike most of the other gadgets, Petpace is an intelligent collar that monitors your pet’s health. Equipped with a sensor, it records your cat’s behaviour and registers her temperature, respiration and vital signs. Connected with an app on your phone, by examining patterns, it sends an instant health alert if there is a potential problem. It is excellent for pets that are older or sick.
