FitBark 2 Dog Health Monitor – High-End Dog Activity and Sleep Monitor

If you’re looking for a new high-end dog activity and sleep monitor for Fido, then the FitBark 2 Dog Health Monitor might be exactly what you need.

The FitBark 2 is a high-end dog activity and sleep monitor that can accurately monitor your dog’s everyday activity and sleep, and then turns all that collected data into deep, actionable health insights.

By using the FitBark 2, dog owners have a brand-new way of motivating both themselves and their dog(s) to be active and healthy.

Thanks to the the FitBark 2’s dog health monitoring capabilities, doggy parents will also be able to explain changes in their dog’s behavior, as well as to make better decisions with their dog’s vet about nutrition, mobility, anxiety, skin conditions and many other health issues.

Let’s take a detailed look at the FitBark 2 Dog Health Monitor and check its design, specs and every single one of its cool features.

DESIGN & SPECS

The FitBark 2 Dog Health Monitor is an high-end dog activity and sleep monitor that’s extremely small, measuring 1.6 inches long by 1.1 inches wide by 0.5 inches tall (41 x 28 x 13.5 mm) when resting on top of a flat surface, and is also super lightweight, weighing a measly 0.35 ounces (10 grams).

While the FitBark 2 perfectly fits dogs of any breed, size and weight (3 lbs and 200 lbs dogs are both perfectly fine), this doggy collar health monitor won’t fit any collars that are wider than 1.5″ (38 mm). So be aware that there’s that disadvantage. Other than that, this doggy health monitor is simply awesome.

Dog parents can use two of the eight (x8) included Zip Ties to easily and perfectly attach the FitBark 2 Dog Health Monitor to their dog’s collar.

This dog activity and sleep monitor comes integrated in a durable polycarbonate housing that features a rugged design for maximum durability and is also rated IP67 Waterproof – meaning it can be submerged up to 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes. Still, while the FitBark 2 is extremely durable, keep in mind that “nothing on earth is 100% dog-bite proof” (quoting the company exactly bit by bit).
