According to the American Pets Product Association, Americans spent $ 99B on their pets in 2020. With the growing popularity of IoT, Americans also spent ~$ 10B on wearables last year. Fi, the company behind a proprietary GPS-enabled smart collar for dogs, fuses the two. Aside from tracking location, the collars monitor the movement, activity, and sleep patterns of the dog and the company is increasingly focused on using machine learning to address potential health issues that may arise and be detected from the data it collects. Fi’s Series 2 collar, which has a battery life of 3 months without a charge, retails at $ 149 and the GPS tracking service is $ 99/yr.
