Nuzzle Smart Pet Collar

Nuzzle developed their advanced pet collar and accompanying pet insurance plan to provide better and smarter pet care products for animal lovers. The Nuzzle Collar is the only no-fee pet tracker with nationwide cellular GPS coverage for real time location tracking. The collar is coupled with a clear and simple pet insurance offering that pet owners can access via the Nuzzle app. Alloy worked closely with Nuzzle and Ammunition to develop an efficient package that combines the perfect balance of ruggedness, product features, battery life, and usability, while still being small enough to use with smaller pets. Unlike similar products on the market, Nuzzle Collar comes with two rechargeable and removable batteries. This makes it easy to swap the battery so there is no need to remove the collar, helping to maintain pet tracking at all times. The product is waterproof up to 10 feet with the attached battery, and when the battery is removed, both the battery and device are splashproof.

Alloy owned all aspects of the mechanical design of the smart collar and charging dock, from concept to tooling release. Check out the Indiegogo campaign here.
