Problem

Many pet owners struggle with leaving their pets alone due to safety concerns, basic needs, and separation anxiety. A device that could alert them to these needs would be beneficial in alleviating anxieties for pets and their owners.

Overview

For our final class project, we were assigned the task of developing technology in any industry. As a group, we opted to design a wearable device for pets that connects to an app, enabling owners to monitor their pet's health.

Solution

WellWag is a wearable device for your pet that will bring peace of mind to, both, human and animal by illuminating your pet's needs so you’re never in the dark.

User Research

Interviews
