TrakTag is a mobile application that allows the user to track their pets health through wearable technology and data visualization. The name tag that the pet wears tracks movement, location, and steps. It also features a microphone and speaker so the owner can communicate with their pet, or just say hi when they miss their pet.

The Problem
The health of a pet is significantly important in order for the pet to live a long, happy life. Unlike humans, pets cannot monitor their health. Therefore they rely on their devoted owners to take good care of them. If a pet is not monitored everyday, the pet can become overweight and develop sicknesses without the owner even noticing a change.

Use Cases
Jackson is away on a business trip for work and remembers that he is doing the walk week challenge on TrakTag. He is on day 6 of 7 and doesn’t want to let down his Dog. Jackson calls the friend that is watching his dog and makes sure that they get a 20 minute walk in so they don’t fail the challenge. Jackson is passionate about making sure his dog gets in his daily walk because his dog has poor joints and a short walk everyday helps keep his joint from getting too stiff. This applications helps Jackson track his dogs activity to make sure he is getting just enough rest and exercise. Jackson also likes that he can say hi to his dog when he misses him.
