Last summer, we wrote about smart dog collars, but my Grandma recently gifted us something equally cool - smart tags. Have you ever heard of XY? They have a techy line of smart tags, or rather, "findables", which can help you keep track of nearly anything. We have two of the XY3s and put one on each of the boys' leashes, which might sound silly because we have a designated hook for the leashes, but I'm constantly misplacing them.
The "find it" part comes in with an app. You simply attach a tag to an item that you want to continuously track, register it with the app and then refer back to the app whenever needed. To help you find your items, the app sets off a tone and basically initiates a game of Marco Polo :)
Another fun feature of the XY3 are the KeepNear Notifications, which allows you to set boundaries for your designated item and alerts you when it becomes out of range. Understandably, this feature seems to be well liked among other dog owners. A new model is set to launch soon and is slated to build upon the pet tracking feature even more. Pretty cool, right?
So, would you ever try out smart technology with your dog? This one could become a big lifesaver.
