FitBark Review From Dog Owners
Having owned a FitBit for over 6 months and enjoying the constant updates to move, I thought that my dog could benefit from one of their own. I first heard about the FitBark through a related product via Amazon and after reading their spiel I instantly bought it.
For the relatively small cost, the FitBark is a great bit of doggie technology and the fact it connects to the FitBit is a great bonus too. There are a number of other competitors that can track your dogs activity but none can truly connect effortlessly to a FitBit.
I also think the design is simple but works great with a dog collar as many competitors look quite obtrusive. An example of this is the Tagg, which is pretty much a tag around your dogs feet as if they have just come from prison!
As an overview, the FitBark is simply a fun dog accessory that enables you to track your dogs activity that can be compared with dogs around the world. If you love your FitBit, then you are more than likely going to love the FitBark!
