I stumbled upon Voyce at #CES2014 by accident. Thanks to an unknown person who litter the carpet with one of the Voyce calling card, I went to the booth. After all, there was a picture of a cute dog on it, and as a dog lover, how can I resist?
When I got to the booth at The Venetian, then I realized that Voyce is not a gimmick (I thought it is some kind of a dog’s bark translator originally sold as a novelty by the Japanese toy company: Bandai, several years ago). This is because Voyce measures key vital signs and other wellness indicators through wearable technology and proprietary algorithms. Using that information, Voyce provides you (and your vet) with trends and valuable insights, helping you stay proactive about your dog’s overall health, behavior, and well-being.
More than just a snapshot of activity, Voyce monitors key vital signs including heart rate and respiratory rate, along with other wellness indicators such as activity, rest, calories burned, and more. Information is more valuable when you can see how it changes over time. Voyce measures your dog’s key vital signs and other wellness indicators and revealing trends. All of these data points come together to paint a clearer and a much more complete picture of your dog’s wellbeing and providing you with actionable recommendations. Just like a regular health-band… but for dogs.
Not only that. By having all the actionable data in-context, you will then be able to strengthen your bond as you and your dog learn, grow and socialize. By incorporating exclusive content and tools written and produced by some of the nation’s leading dog experts, Voyce provides relevant, timely information that is tailored to your dog’s needs. Plus, incentives along the way make achieving goals more fun and easy (or at least easier).
Reportedly, as Voyce gets to know your dog, you’ll receive customized tips, expert advice, relevant articles, and more. With each new insight, you’ll get closer to understanding how your dog is feeling, thinking, and behaving. Voyce can also help you identify common medical conditions such as heart disease and respiratory problems. When medical conditions are caught early, it may improve your dog’s quality of life and reduce treatment costs. Most importantly, your dog won’t have to suffer while we’re playing guessing game regarding what’s going on and/or what’s wrong with your dog.
I’m so intrigued with the unit and want to buy one immediately. Alas I have to wait for several month as the collar designed for my Maltese Poodle breed is not yet available. I hope I can be one of the first users when the one sized for my dog comes to the market. For the time being, I’ll just be wearing the nice t-shirt Voyce gave me during #CES2014.
