It is estimated that around 10 million pets are lost every year which is a huge figure. If you have a pet at home, here is something which is very useful and helps you prevent them from getting lost. Pip is a new wearable device for pets and it comes with a small GPS and activity tracker for dogs and cats with great battery life and added connectivity.
Pip is a small device which can be attached to your pet’s collar. With Pip, you get an alert whenever it moves from your safe location and it also gives your pet’s exact location. The device comes with an app which uses the GPS in your phone and the GPS in Pip to guide you to your pet. You can also send out an alert to neighbors and friends.
Pip uses a cellular data connection to transmit the GPS location of your pet and you’ll be able to see the exact location. Pip works anywhere in US with cell data.
The battery in Pip will last up to 3 months on a single charge, meaning that you only need to charge it a few times a year. Along with these features Pip will also keep track of your pet’s daily movements and let you know exactly how active your pet is on a given day. Over time, you can use this data to alert you to changing trends in your pet’s behavior.
The connected app will allow you to create a pet profile with a photo and key information about your pet. If your pet goes missing, with the press of a button, you can send out an alert to nearby users and trusted connections with your pet’s profile and exact location. Pip is available only in US and if you are interested you can fund the project on Kickstarter, the pricing starts at $149.
