You can request and maintain copies of your dog’s medical records within the mobile app. If your veterinarian is using BabelVet, all of your records will be updated and maintained automatically. Additionally, your dog’s activity history, dietary details, weight changes, and medication compliance collected thru the app between visits can be shared directly with your veterinarian to provide your dog a virtual voice.

No! Fitness tracking is only one of many benefits provided thru the BabelBark app. With BabelBark, you can store and share medical records, lost & found information, pet licenses, care details, and more…all thru our secure cloud infrastructure. You can also connect with your favorite veterinarian and pet business to schedule, shop, and pay thru the mobile app. Your veterinarian will gain detailed insight into your dogs diet, activity and medical dosage history….and don’t forget about the coupons and discounts exclusively made available to members thru the app!
Now, when it comes to activity tracking, there are two options. The first option is to use the GPS tracking built into the app to record your walks. Just open the app and click Start when you begin. Don’t forget to click Stop when complete. The second option is to use the BabelBark fitness tracker. You can purchase these at our online store here. When you receive the device, follow the instructions and you’ll be tracking your dog’s activity 24/7…even while you are away.
The mobile app runs on Apple (iOS 8.0 or higher) and Android (4.4 or higher) devices.
Pet parents vary considerably when it comes to how they care for their dogs. Meanwhile, each of our dogs also has unique needs. Because of the incredible variation across pet parents AND their dogs, we designed BabelBark as a “multi-tool” capable of supporting any combination of people and dogs.
Whether you have a young dog that craves activity or an older dog with medical conditions, BabelBark provides the support you need to manage their happy and healthy life. Activity, diet, and medications are one aspect of the app that help you manage their daily life.
Connect with your veterinarian and regional pet businesses to create an extended virtual family dedicated to care of your pet. Manage all of your dog’s medical records, licenses, identification, emergency contacts…even their shopping preferences in one secure location that you can securely share. Whether you use all the features or just a few, BabelBark is designed just for you.
Information about pairing and synching the fitness monitor with a mobile app can we found here: www.babelbark.com/activate
The fitness monitor uses Bluetooth 4.0 technology which emits a fraction of the radiation humans receive thru cell phones. Monitors are also FCC compliant and within the specifications followed by any other product considered to be safe.
The fitness monitor uses a 2032 button battery which contains lithium. Ingestion of this battery must be treated by a veterinarian immediately. The acid can leak and cause small holes in the stomach or intestinal cavities.
Our device uses a CR2032 “watch” battery. The battery lasts up to 6 months and these models are available at most grocery/convenience stores for about $2. It is easy to replace the battery. Just remove the fitness monitor from the silicon casing, take the back cover of the fitness monitor off, and replace the battery. Make sure the back cover is secure after you replace the battery to ensure it stays waterproof.
The battery shipped with the device is not rechargeable. For folks that prefer rechargeable batteries, you can purchase these online (Amazon has many options). We are currently testing some of these rechargeable options now. Stay tuned here.
So….what exactly is a “point?” BabelBark utilizes an intelligent, point based system to combine: (1) time and (2) intensity within a single metric. So for example, points can distinguish between 10 minutes of walking (about 50 points), 10 minutes of jogging (about 100 points), and 10 minutes of running (about 150 points).
This results in a better metric relative to steps, active time, and/or distance….which can vary greatly with the assorted sizes and shapes of dogs.nnThis point system, is especially relevant for dogs. The number of steps a Great Dane and Chihuahua take to walk the same mile are very different. Similarly, the activity intensity of a Labrador Retriever and English Bulldog during a 5-minute play session is very different. The HUGE variety of dogs relative to human beings makes a point based system highly relevant and practical.
The BabelBark mobile app captures activity, measured in points, from: (1) the GPS built into the app, or (2) the fitness monitor device. The points calculated via GPS measurements approximates the number of points generated by the fitness monitor for the same activity. These points are used to create goals, compare time periods, compare similar dogs, etc…We are still collecting metrics on the average number of points per dog (based on breed, age, and size) but we do have an initial Activity Calculator that shows the average number of daily points based on age and weight. We will provide more comparative benchmarks (including breed, medical conditions, etc.) as we collect more baseline data over time.
