Your dog keeps watch over you constantly; the Whistle monitor (costing about R1 000 in the US) lets you return the favour. The waterproof device records data such as time spent walking, playing and resting, and even who’s with your pet at a given moment. The data is accessible via iPhone, allowing you to track trends, set goals, share information with your vet and check in on your best friend, no matter where you are. – JAIME NETZER
Price: around R1 000. Visit www.whistle.com for ordering information.
