Wearable tech threatens to make us all look a bit silly--but thankfully our dogs demonstrate a refreshing lack of humility, so design aesthetics shouldn't be a problem unless you're so vain you can't stand the look of the thing yourself (and if so, take a good, hard look at your priorities).
Personally, I can't wait to hand off the Voyce collar to Whiskey, my border collie mix. Just how much exercise is she really getting on leashed dog walks relative to off-leash trips to the beach? And just how much stress does she feel when we're riding in the car? I'm obsessed with my own quantified-self stats, and now I can turn my attention to her.
