Anybody ever heard of these ? ... or used them ?

Interesting concept. Seems to only have one audible sound "note", rather than the "two-part" sound of a conventional metallic clicker.

I don't think the device is actually shown in the video, and I'm curious about it. Very curious.

I watched the video but don't see the point....

It's electronic meaning it must be waterproof and very reliable; if it's a cheap "made in China" item it's automatically rubbish in my book. If it's a quality product it will be pricey. And what do you get? The same thing as a regular $1 clicker.

It also happens to have an exact same sound as electric collars "good dog" sound so I guess its purpose may be for training hunting dogs.

I felt the basic idea had some merit, as far as increasing the precision of the marker itself. Potentially anyway. It was just a thought.

Although, I can see possible issues with the one heard in the vid. (other devices ie: microwave oven timer, cell phone alerts, etc sounding very similar if not exactly the same).

Maybe that would be one benefit of using a conventional metallic clicker ? -- nothing else in the environment sounds like it, for the most part.

I had one a few years ago (from clickertraining.com) that chirped like a cricket, pinged and did something else (don't remember what - maybe sounded like a clicker) in both soft and loud. They were off the market for a while - am assuming this is a new and improved version (or maybe she's had it a while) I mostly used it to click human students for good footwork without confusing the dogs with a click.

Does it matter? seriously.
There are people who buy clothes for their dogs. Its a want, not a need in most cases.
There are people that pay for clickers, there are others that use ball point pens. I personally use "yes" and schutzhund. None of the 3 i have trained were in any way unresponsive to the marker. Once your marker is charged and ready to use, it will work. Regardless if its a broken ball point pen, a clicker or a marker word.
Dogs and i dont give a flying fig for commercialism. A bleeping clicker is commercialism.
