In the last couples of months, we have seen wearables for humans as well as your GPS trackers for your kids like Lineable. But you haven’t heard of a dedicated wearable designed to be worn by pets. We all love ourselves as well as our children; though, families with pets have one more thing to protect, their pets. There is one such product which has dedicated its purpose to the safety of the pets and has started its Indiegogo campaign for crowd funding the project.
Pod tracker is a GPS tracker specifically designed for your pet. The device is lightweight and comfortable to be worn by your pet. It not only allows you to track location of your pet in real-time, but it as well as tracks the activities of them. It also boasts features like perimeter alerts, which will allow you to set a safety perimeter for pet, and when the perimeter is crossed, you will get a notification on the companion app of the tracker.
The device is about the size of the cork and weighs only 29 grams. And what’s more interesting is that it allows you to change the batteries easily. It is very simple to use, first you need to download the app for your smartphone, and then attach the Pod tracker to the collar of your pet, which is very easy as it has a strapping mechanism. With unique adjustable fitting system used, it can be attached to the any size and shape collar with ease.
The Pod uses a standard GSM network to talk to the app, and an SIM card will be bundled with the device, which will include 12 month’s usage with $30 annual renewal. The device touts the fully waterproof feature as you don’t need to remove the Pod once it is installed on the collar of your pet.
The App is designed such that it is easy to use, giving you the enjoyable user experience that parents and kids love to use. The features of the app include real-time location, custom safe zones, as well as perimeter alerts controls, are done via the companion app. The pet owners would be able to monitor fitness levels of your pet including how much they rest, walk and run over the day. Later, you can also compare the stats of your pet with the other pets around the world on the Pet league tables.
Pod tracker is available at an early birds pledge of $149, which includes one Pod Live unit, two interchangeable batteries, one charging dock and two straps. Company claims that the device will be shipping in December this year, once the Indiegogo campaign of the company got funded.
