Tracking collar for iphone

Wearable tech isn't just for people – now your cat or dog can be fitted up with GPS trackers and fitness tracking collars , which offer owners peace of mind.

Pet wearables are set to big business and there's an increasing number of companies crafting wearable gadgets just for animals. Trackers can monitor their health – looking for tell-tale changes in behaviour that point to illness, and keep tabs on their location if they go walkabout.

Boasting proper wearable tech pedigree (excuse the pun), Whistle is the work of New Deal Design, which also designed the Fitbit Flex. The device marries GPS tracking and pet wellness in one band; the unit clips to any collar more than 1-inch wide and connects to a smartphone app to keep tabs on your pooch's step goal. On the GPS side, you can get real-time location anywhere in the US and set up a geo-fenced area with alerts.
