It looks like the next big thing in pet gadgets may be activity trackers. Activity trackers are already very popular for people and now they are poised to become popular for our four legged companions as well. The latest activity tracker for dogs is the Whistle Activity Monitor. This disc shaped device clips to your dog’s existing collar and is designed to track walks, play, and rest. Your pet’s data syncs from the Whistle via WiFi to Whistle’s Internet servers, and then back to the mobile app on the Bluetooth paired iOS device. Whistle also measures togetherness time when it senses the presence of the pet’s listed owners by detecting an owner’s paired device over Bluetooth.

The Whistle Activity Monitor is priced at $129.95. A version from Android will be coming this Spring.

    A couple of times, I set up a video camera to see what our dogs did when we were at work. They often play together when we’re around, but here is the approximate breakdown of how they spent the days:

    54%: sleeping on couch
    44%: sleeping on floor
    1%: moving to new spot after the sun moved sufficiently.
    1%: barking at something off camera (squirrel or delivery man, presumably).

    I guess something like this would make sense for people with pet doors.
