Posted in Pets by Tam Yue on May 29th, 2014

Whistle with GPSThe guys over at Whistle are upgrading their “fitbit for pets”. You can now know where your dog is at all times.

Now they are adding GPS to their device. Considering that over 10 million pets are lost each year this is a great idea.

The Whistle device attaches to your pets collar and can record location, rest and activity. So you will still know if your pet is getting the right amount of activity everyday.
