Overview

The start-up team behind Waggit aimed to make a game-changing product – the first all-in-one smart wearable for dogs. The collar would give dog owners early visibility and actionable insights into their dogs’ well-being.

  • Developed a fully-functional smart collar that monitors a dog’s vitality and well-being via a connected health monitor
  • Developed the embedded software and accompanying mobile apps (iOS and server-based applications)

The idea

Our client came to Star to help them deliver a turnkey, market-ready product. They needed a product development and engineering partner who could take them through the entire product development lifecycle, from ideation to design process, and from POC prototyping to the finished product.

Project

Working collaboratively with our partner, we designed and developed an engineering prototype of a smart collar that delivers multiple monitoring capabilities, including health, activity and safety information. The collar is a combined fitness tracker and GPS, and it also keeps track of its battery life. The Waggit collar learns the dog’s baseline, then tracks actionable insights from trend data, and communicates relevant alerts to the dog owner.
