I love finding new and innovative products for myself and Lucy. Anything with a tech angle or that is unique enough to be a conversation starter gets my attention. That’s why I love so many of the products on The Grommet. Their site is full of unique and innovation items, including many for pets! There’s everything from toys and treats to beds and grooming supplies. What caught my eye is the WonderWoof Dog Activity Tracker that looks like a bowtie.
Just to let you know, this post is sponsored by The Grommet, but all opinions are 100% my own. Lucy and I put this tracker through a thorough Lab(rador) Test and really enjoyed the opportunity to try out such a new and exciting product.
How Does the Activity Tracker Work?
I think the first question I get from poeple (I told you, I like conversation starters!), is how this tracker works. The Grommet explains that “the BowTie has a three-axis accelerometer that constantly collects activity data and syncs with your mobile device, providing you with insights into your dog’s health. Each ‘bone’ on the app home screen represents 10% of your dog’s daily recommended activity.”
When I set up Lucy’s profile in the app it asked for her age, weight and breed. That’s how it determines how much activity your dog should get each day. I love how we accumulate bones toward our goal. Each bone represents 10% of Lucy’s daily activity goal. So, if I looked at the WonderWoof app in the afternoon and we had less than 5 bones, Lucy and had to hit the pavement for a nice long walk. Even though this is an activity tracker for dogs, it definitely got me moving more than usual too! Lucy can’t walk herself!
Interchangeable NY Fashion Collection Bands
I thought the activity tracker looked really cool, but what really sold me was the interchangeable NY Fashion Collection bands than you can swap out on the bowtie. Every time I take the bowtie off the charger it, I swap out the band so we can keep it fresh! It’s perfect for a stylish dog mom like myself. The bands are very easy to swap out, but they also stay on very securely, so I’ve never been worried about the bow tie falling off.
Final Lab Test Results
Lucy put this tracker through an extensive Lab(rador) Test for a couple weeks before I wrote this post. I wanted to make sure we really got to experience the app so I could share our thoughts. Lucy reports that shoe loves it, and wishes that more dogs had the WonderWoof! That’s because there is a community aspect built into the app where you can discover other dogs with this tracker. There weren’t any other Pittsburgh pups with it, the closest we could find is Toronto or New York.
Here’s a screen shot of Lucy’s stats on her highest performing day. I have to say, we had a really hard time reaching 10 bones! I think that it’s OK to not reach the goal every day, because life happens! But what I took away from the data is that Lucy could use a lot more play time. We go on a lot of long walks, but she doesn’t get as much “bursting, high energy activity” which is how WonderWoof defines playtime. After wearing the tracker for a few days and noticing this I made a point to play little games of fetch in the living room or backyard when I can.
All in all, the WonderWoof Dog Activity Tracker has made a positive impact on both of our lives! Not only is Lucy getting more play time, I’m also being more active and most importantly, it encouraged us to spend more time together having fun! Thank you to The Grommet for the opportunity to test out this awesome product!
