Let the NFC Tag Tell You How Healthy Your Dog is
A Japanese company is helping busy dog owners to know more about how healthy their dog is. They sell a NFC tag to be hanged on dog’s neck and it monitors the health condition of pets 24-hours a day, 365-days a year. And the latest 14-days data in the tag can be synchronized to cloud using smartphone or PC. The tag counts steps taken then we can know how frequent we should walk our dog and prevent dog diabetes. It also counts body shaking of our dog so we can know if its stress level is OK. Other than these, it also records the temperature of the environment.
They have both smartphone app and web portal. Through these platforms, we can upload other info like how much food they have eaten and know about how healthy our pets are by taking a look on the data there. As the data is shown as graphs, it's quite easy to read. And we can write diary and upload photos to the cloud and share them to Facebook or twitter.
