There's a new standard for your pooch's health and wellness thanks to SF-based startup Whistle. Dog owners can now monitor their pets' movements and vitals on a day-to-day basis with the use of the Whistle activity tracker ($129.95) and the corresponding app (available on both iPhone and Android). Think of it like a Fitbit for dogs. And the gathered data can be useful to find health and fitness trends and to help vets make more informed decisions for future procedures. Want to tap into your dog's stats immediately? Starting today, find the trackers on the shelves at PetSmart, ready to hit the trails and to log hours and steps. It's wearable tech for your pooch—we can only imagine what's next.
