Invoxia Smart Dog Collar is a fitness tracker for your pet
It’s not just humans who can wear health and fitness trackers. A company at CES thinks your pets should have them, too.
Tech company Invoxia showcased the Smart Dog Collar, which uses sensors and other technologies to monitor a dog’s health, track their whereabouts, and alert owners of any potential health issues.
The collar includes miniature radar sensors capable of measuring a dog’s respiratory and heart rate. It uses Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth to track your pet’s physical location in case he gets lost or escapes. Users can also receive alerts if their dog has escaped.
It also measures a dog’s daily activities, including the time spent walking, resting, and eating. The collar is associated with an app that owners use to track their pet’s health.

“Until now, data has been difficult to collect, so there are few studies that provide vital information about the health of pets from daily activities or continuous monitoring,” said the CEO. of Invoxia, Amélie Caudron, in a press release. “With the smart collar, the ability to collect a large amount of data on a large scale over time will open incredible doors for research into the correlations between vital signs and dog diseases. This is how we discover new biomarkers, treatments and drugs. “
The French company will begin selling the necklaces for an estimated cost of $ 99 starting this summer. It will also require a monthly subscription of $ 12.99 per month. Invoxia said the collar will initially be available for medium to large dogs.
