Nowadays, there are already many options when it comes to pet trackers, and some can even monitor heart rate, but none seem to be able to detect atrial fibrillation (AFib) until now. Horse CES 2024 In Las Vegas, GPS tracker specialist Invoxia has launched Minitails, the world’s first pet tracker that can track signs of early heart disease in your cat or dog. Along with other vital statistics and an activity log, the utility then uses conversational generative artificial intelligence to generate easy-to-read reports about your pets.
According to the French company, Minitailz can monitor respiratory and cardiac vital organs with 97-99 percent accuracy thanks to advanced biometric sensors combined with artificial intelligence. Using deep learning algorithms, the dataset is used to detect digital biomarkers indicative of stress, aging and pathologies. The device can also distinguish types of movement such as walks, runs and zooms, as well as alert you when your pets stray outside of your pre-set geographic boundaries.
The Minitailz module includes a built-in SIM card for LTE-M connectivity that allows real-time tracking along with GPS. It can be attached to any pet’s collar, which, according to Invoxia, is superior to many competing devices that are stuck inside a physical neckband.
Minitailz are now available for dogs Invoxia website for $99, followed by a cat version for the same price in March. You will also need to purchase a subscription starting at $8.30 per month.
