Pedometers for Dogs


How much ground does your pooch cover in a day? Does he get enough exercise? You don't have to wonder anymore. Fujitsu has produced the Wandant--a pedometer for dogs:

The name Wandant is a combination of the Japanese word for a dog's bark, "wan wan," (which in English would be "woof woof") and the word pendant. The device uses a three-axis accelerometer to log the dog's steps taken, and it even records the dog's shivering motions and body temperature changes.

To capture data from the device the owner can simply hold their NFC-enabled phone near the Wandant and the data transfer will be initiated. That data is then sent to the cloud and presented as graphic statistics that the owner can review on a daily basis on a website via desktop computer or on a special mobile site for Android handsets.
