This smart pet collar tag is app-connected so that owners can keep track of their dog and cats' locations. On the surface, 'Nuzzle' is used for simply that, however, in reality it is meant to encourage users to purchase pet insurance through the company. It does this by providing an easy way to buy this affordable service through the app.

The pet collar tag itself is also quite useful though on its own. It is water-resistant and can let the owner know if their pet has left the approved area, in combination with a geofence that has been set up at the start. In order to do this, the device uses cellular GPS as well as sensors.

The sensors can let users know the animal's heat level, in case it is dangerously high in summer as well as if it tragically gets hit by a vehicle.
