After the yet-to-be-named device is launched later this year, you won’t have to worry so much about your pup while you’re out to the movies. The sensor sends data on movement, signs of shivering and external temperature to both your smartphone and the cloud. It also keeps an eye on longer-term issues like obesity and diabetes. Lest you think you need to implant this like an RFID chip, no assembly is required — you just attach it to Scooby’s collar.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t monitor location, But it’s nice to know something can help you keep an eye on your pet’s well-being. (Not that I know any dogs who’re getting chunky because of too much cheese or anything. Nope, not me.)
