Kippy Evo is the world’s first smartphone for your pets. Well, it isn’t really a smartphone, but more like a GPS tracker with the ability of sending real time location data to your Kippy app thanks to an always-on cellular connection. The Evo model, recently launched by Kippy, follows a popular first version of the product that the Italian startup had successfully bootstrapped on the equity crowdfunding platform MamaCrowd.
The Kippy Evo won’t only track your pet’s whereabouts with exact location and a geofencing option, but will also act as an activity tracker that keeps the health status of your dog or cat under check. Thanks to its sensors and some data processing behind the scenes, it’s also able to learn the animal’s habits and needs and communicates them to the owner via app notifications. Kippy Evo is available on the company’s web store or on Amazon for £69,99. On top of that, just like a smartphone, you’ll need to buy a data plan to activate the always-on GPS tracking function.
