Don’t be surprised if your pet has clocked more steps than you. Wondering what I am talking. Well, have you heard of an activity tracker for your pet? Just as you can get one for yourself and keep a track of your fitness levels, you can now also get an activity tracker for your pet. How cool is that? Technology today has advanced to an extent that you can also keep your pets fit and healthy given that the pet is an integral part of the family. Gone are the days when pets were just kept to guard the house.
Research indicates that on an average, an animal is 6.5 times more active than a human being. Moreover, the distance covered by an animal (on feet) is more than a human being.
A comparative study of dogs namely Labrador retriever and Fox Terrier has revealed that Fox terriers are self-motivated as compared to Labrador retrievers, hence the latter needs to be provoked and taken out for walks.
How do you use the A-Tracker? The tracker can be placed on the collar of the pet or attached to the tail. The benefits derived are amazing you can compare your activity levels to that of your pet, data is synced with the app. We have started the beta testing on the band for pets and here is what some of the users have to say.
“The GOQii A-Tracker is a revolutionary device. This will serve as a wake-up call for human beings to get up and be active.” Another user says, “I realized that my dog is more active than me although he stays at home all day, now I am competing with my Rocky”
That’s not all, just as GOQii has pioneered the concept of Active Sundays for its players, it will also pilot roll out its first Active Sundays with pets on May 22, 2016.
