The Xiaomi PETBIT is a fitness tracker for your pet. It tracks your pet’s calories burned, distance and walking time. Other than that, it also includes a GPS and Narrowband IoT which allows you to track your pet’s location is real time. Just attach it to your pet’s collar, and do not worry, it’s waterproof. One last cool feature it has, as you might have noticed from the picture, is a QR code. This allows anyone to scan and get the owner’s contact details.
Unfortunately, it is sold out on Shopee. However, if you can find it on another e-commerce platform or a retailer, then go right ahead and buy it.
Pet Care Monitor by Sharp
Yes, this is a litter box. A USD 226 (RM 933), high tech kitty litter box. Now you may be saying, “For that price, it better run Crysis!” Unfortunately, the answer is NO. However, it does monitor your cat’s weight, urine volume and frequency, and time spent on the toilet. Then, for a monthly fee of USD 3 (RM 12), an AI will analyse the data collected and send alerts to your phone if it detects any abnormalities in your kitty’s toilet habits.
Now, with that said, this product was only sold in Japan, and from what I could find, it seems that it is no longer in production. With that being said, there are similar products on the market, but with some of the smart features included only. For example, PET Smart Cat Litter Box & Venan Automatic.
Petkit Eversweet Solo
The Eversweet Solo is basically an expensive water dispenser with a filtration system to keep the water clean and fresh for your pets. Even though it is advertised for cats, it can be used by small breed dogs as well.
It comes equipped with a high-performance purifying filter which is composed of a cotton layer, coconut shell activated carbon, and an ion exchange resin. They form a triple filtration system to provide healthy, running, and oxygen-enriched water for your pets. It can be found here: Shopee Store
