Fitbit, Apple Watch, GoPro, just to name a few, are some of the wearable techs that we really enjoy. Well, for some of us, we can’t live without them!
As the types of wearable techs are growing daily, we are seeing them evolve for more specific uses day by day. Pet Wearables is a very good example of this evolution in technology. Wearable techs are definitely going to be an essential part of our pet’s lifestyle in the future.
The phenomenon has already started…
The belief that pets have the power to improve their owners’ lives and that we are happier and healthier the more time we spend with them, is the driving force behind this phenomenon.
So, check out these 5 of the best wearable techs for your four-legged friend:
5) Wearable cameras with a harness
We all know about wearable cameras like Hero from GoPro and the sheer number of mounts and accessories available for it.
One missing accessory was a dog harness. But that all changed when Fetch came along.
Fetch is a harness that works with all versions of GoPro’s Hero cameras, and it attaches to your dog with relative ease.
The harness has two built-in camera mounts; One on the top of your dog’s back, and one on the front for placing a camera on your dog’s chest. Chest mount is removable to accommodate smaller dogs.
This fully adjustable harness fits dogs from 15 to 120 lbs (7 to 54 kg) and is padded at all adjustment points to ensure your pet’s comfort.
And the best thing about this is; it does not weigh a lot so can be worn by your pet for hours. Washable, water-friendly material holds up to swimming, splashing, mud and more.
Capture the world from your dog’s point of view using techs like Hero and Fetch from GoPro!
