The top 7 reasons pet parents will love the new whistle FIT

Just in time for New Year’s resolutions, we’re thrilled to announce that we’re expanding our offerings with the launch of a new product  – Whistle FIT, a pet wearable entirely focused on health, fitness and nutrition.

No doubt about it, our furball friends are bundles of energy! But most pet parents wonder how much exercise do they really need? And how much food should they be eating? Are they sleeping enough? Scratching too much? Licking to excess? 

Pet parents can now empower themselves with the answers to all these questions and more with Whistle FIT, which makes it super-easy to keep your pet on track to live their best life every day. Whistle FIT packs all the power of our flagship Whilst GO trackers –– just without GPS location tracking. 

So how does Whistle FIT make such a big difference? Here are the top 7 reasons why pets and pet parents everywhere will soon know why the all-new Whistle FIT is about to change everything. 

1 - Because fitness starts with what they eat. With a database of over 3,000 types of dog food, across all major brands, the new Nutrition feature tells you the perfect amount to feed your dog based on the food you use and activity level that Whistle FIT detects (combined with smart algorithms that also take into consideration your dog’s breed, age, weight, of course!).  

2 - It turns insights into activity. Based on your dog’s breed, age, and weight, Whistle FIT will know your pup’s exercise needs. Then, by tracking your dog’s activity and calories burned, it can recommend specific fitness goals. Whistle FIT lets you know when goals have been achieved, and even sends encouraging “nudges” when your pet’s getting close to achieving them. 

3 - It means no more wondering. The #1 reason people call and visit the vet is concern that their pet may be scratching or licking too much. Whistle FIT monitors your dog’s scratching and licking and alerts you if levels of either get high enough to become a concern. 

4 - You’ll have 24/7 wellness monitoring and peace of mind. It keeps tabs on the important stuff even while you’re not there. In addition to scratching and licking, Whistle FIT monitors your pet’s sleeping habits. If any activity falls outside normal levels, you get alerted on the Whistle app. It can also help you keep track of medication times and vet appointments, sending the whole pack a reminder so you never forget.

5 - Having health data at a glance is handy and powerful. If you’re visiting the vet, Whistle FIT can generate useful reports for your vet’s reference. See your dog’s activity and behavior in a daily report, a weekly report, and an easy-to-read 30-day view. This kind of specific data can help you catch health concerns before they become health problems (which also saves money in vet appointments).

6 - It’s backed by science. Whistle FIT uses data from the Pet Insight Project, where we’ve collected vet-verified data from 60,000 dogs across 900 breeds and mixes, many thanks to our  50,000 citizen scientists who have helped in collecting this data. From this data, we’re able to provide an in-depth look into pet behavior and provide Whistle FIT users with actionable solutions. 

7 - It will mean fewer vet visits and bills. By watching for health issues and catching them before they get serious, Whistle FIT maximizes your doggy’s happy days and minimizes time and money spent at the vet. The quality and longevity of your dog’s life is the main goal of Whistle FIT. 

In short, Whistle FIT empowers you with all the information you need to stay on top of your dog’s health and well-being – so your pet lives their happiest life every single day. Pet parents no longer need to worry and wonder. With great knowledge comes great peace of mind. 

Whistle FIT was officially announced at the 2020 Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas, and will be available for purchase on on January 21st.
