What’s better than a regular LED dog collar? A smart dog collar with GPS and Bluetooth connectivity. The Buddy Dog Collar is a smart wearable that keeps your dog visible and allows you to track its daily activity. The collar is water resistant and has a 3-axis accelerometer, light sensor, temperature sensor, and an OLED display. It is waterproof. The companion app provides you with activity tracking, geofencing, health stats, and more.
With Buddy, you get programmable LEDs that you can customize from your iPhone or Apple Watch. Buddy is completely autonomous, so you don’t have to constantly play with your smartphone to configure it. Buddy connects to your smart home components such as locks and thermostats. The built-in light sensor turns the collar on and off and adjust the brightness automatically. There is a lot to like here. The project is now on Kickstarter.
