Is your family pet a little on the heavy side? Then why not monitor their activity with the doggie pedometer.

DVICE is reporting that a Tokyo company Fujitsu has done just that. They call the pedometer Wandant and it is designed for man’s best friend.

Here is the description from the product’s website:

The name Wandant is a combination of the Japanese word for a dog’s bark, “wan wan,” (which in English would be “woof woof”) and the word pendant. The device uses a three-axis accelerometer to log the dog’s steps taken, and it even records the dog’s shivering motions and body temperature changes.

To capture data from the device the owner can simply hold their NFC-enabled phone near the Wandant and the data transfer will be initiated. That data is then sent to the cloud and presented as graphic statistics that the owner can review on a daily basis on a website via desktop computer or on a special mobile site for Android handsets.
