CES always has its fair share of pet tech. And this year CES 2024 is not different. By far, the standout product is the new Invoxia Minitaliz AI smart collar for monitoring pets’ heart health, location, activity, appetite and more.
It is supposed to be small enough to be worn by small dogs and cats and attaches to any collar. Priced at $99 and available now, here’s everything you need to know about the Minitaliz AI Smart Collar.
Minitailz AI Smart Collar: Preventive Care Features
With a focus on real-time health monitoring and preventive care, Anoxia says regular heart and breathing scans Minitailz AI Collar Can help detect early signs of heart disease in pets. Over time, the device senses resting heart and respiratory rates, as well as your pet’s distinct heart signature. Users will get an alert if any sudden changes are detected.
The device also looks for signs of irregular heartbeats in pets, which can indicate atrial fibrillation (AFib), a serious and potentially fatal condition.
Minitailz AI Smart Collar: Location and Fitness Tracking
For a comprehensive look at daily fitness, the Minitailz AI collar’s activity tracking includes events like zoomies and playtime, as well as outdoor activities like long walks and romps at the dog park. It also tracks sleep patterns, barking and more. Collectively, all these data points are used to create a daily health report that can be viewed in the companion app.
The Minitailz AI smart collar sports onboard GPS, WiFi and LTE-M antennas for location and activity tracking. The latter requires a SIM card and a monthly subscription, which will run you $8.30. However, this combination of tracking technology should mean exceptionally accurate real-time location pinpointing. If your dog or cat has ever been loose, you know how important this is.
Battery life and durability
The Minitailz is powered by a (non-replaceable) rechargeable battery that should last between 10 and 14 days per charge. An IP67 water and dust resistance rating translates to protection against rain but cannot be submerged in water. So, get off Biscuit before he jumps into the neighbor’s pond.
Minitailz AI Smart Collar: Outlook
with AI-in-everything is the unofficial theme. At the CES 2024 show, an AI-powered pet health and location tracker makes sense. More importantly, Invoxia’s AI integration, which is used to analyze pet health data, doesn’t look like a gimmick. The subscription price isn’t too bad either, especially if the location tracking is as accurate as promised.
Ultimately, we’re big fans of any new product that takes advantage of the latest technology to improve the lives of humans or pets. With that in mind, we’re looking forward to getting a Minitailz AI smart collar, pairing it with our favorite pooch and trying it out.
