Motorola's smart dog collar to be unveiled at MWC along with other connected wearables
Motorola's smart device business is going to the dogs. Literally. Back in the beginning of the year, at CES, Motorola released a line of connected wearables called Verve Life. Now, the entire line is going to be officially unveiled at MWC next week in Barcelona. One of the products is called Verve Retrieve, a dog collar with an IP67 certification for dust and water resistance. The collar comes with GPS and cellular connectivity so that you can always keep track of Rover. 

The new Verve Retrieve will allow you to set up an invisible fence that will alert you when your dog leaves a certain safe area. The device will last as long as three years before it will need a replacement.

Other devices to be introduced next week include the Verve Cam. This is Motorola's activity camera and will take 2.5K HD video at up to 30fps. The product comes with a line of accessories that will allow you to attach the camera to just about anything. Software provided by Motorola will let you share videos with social-media sites, and broadcast live (like Periscope and Meerkat). The software will also allow you to edit the footage you've recorded.

The Verve line includes a pair of headsets (Verve Loop+ and Verve Rider+) that are water resistant, and provide a battery life of up to 12-hours depending on the model chosen. If you are allergic to wires, the Verve Ones+ is a set of earbuds that contain a battery and a radio inside. You can get by for half-a-day between charges. The Verve Ones+ will allow you to wirelessly listen to music, news, movies, television shows and more, without bothering the rest of the planet.

At MWC, we expect to hear about pricing and availability for the Verve devices. And while it won't be the most anticipated announcement from Motorola, we're sure that your dog is eagerly waiting to hear all about the Verve Retrieve.
