Whistle FIT – Health & Fitness Monitor for Dogs

As dogs don’t speak our language (obviously), it can sometimes be a bit harder for dog owners to really know when their dogs are struggling with a health issue, and that can be mainly applied to . Furthermore, while a quick trip to the closest veterinarian can help dog owners fully understand what’s going wrong with their dogs, not everyone can afford countless vet consultations. This is where a special gadget like the Whistle FIT comes in handy.

The Whistle FIT is a recently released pet gadget that’s geared specifically towards dog health and fitness, and as such, this cool dog gizmo basically works as a health and fitness monitor for dogs. This ingenious solution was designed by Whistle Labs, a leading company in pet health, fitness and location tracking devices,

The Whistle FIT can ultimately be used by dog owners as a preventative pet healthcare tool, and that can be done by simply utilizing the device’s wellness program for dogs.

By relying on the Whistle FIT’s wellness program for dogs, dog owners can ultimately get a simpler and more personalized experience to manage dog care by monitoring their pet’s key health behaviors, food intake, and fitness activity.

Not only that, but by using the Whistle FIT, the company will also provide pet owners with valuable insights that will ultimately enable them to better care for their dogs.

While Whistle Labs also has some of the best-in-class pet wearables currently available on the market – like its Whistle GO Explore GPS Dog Tracker – which enables GPS location tracking in addition to health and fitness features, the company’s recently released Whistle FIT was created as an alternative option for pet owners who aren’t concerned with GPS tracking and solely focused on health and fitness monitoring.

Both of these smart collar-worn dog gadgets (Whistle FIT and Whistle GO Explore) can capture information about a dog’s behavior around-the-clock, which dog owners can easily check at any time through the Smartphone Companion App (Whistle App).
