The Skymee digital feeding pet bowl is used for monitoring your dog’s diet. It can measure the exact weight of food on its digital scale. For Border Collie and other high metabolism dogs this might be exactly what you are looking for. The owners here and at the country farm have given me the opportunity to review it and this is what I think.
Lets get started!
What does this digital dog feeding bowl do?
The Skymee dog feeding bowl uses 2 AAA batteries. Once installed, the outer portion of the dog bowl has a digital scale that can measure the weight of dog food in the bowl. This seems like a great idea for controlling overweight dogs, or for maintenance with dogs that are in training.

What I like about the Skymee digital dog food bowl
It’s quick to set up with simple instructions
Once I opened the box it only took me about 5 minutes to get it working. I had to remove the plastic wrapper from the main dog bowl and place it into its container. I also had to unwrap and install the 2 batteries that came with it. That was pretty much it. Quick and easy, and I did not read the instructions.
The digital scale weighs dog food in ounces, grams, and pounds
I was quite surprised that the digital scale had a lot of readings. As a Border Collie owner I could see where the ability to read in ounces or pounds would be beneficial. (grams also if you wish). Having the different weight options on the feeding bowls scale would seem to help a lot when it came to feeding different size dogs.
It can hold enough food for any size dog (or cat)
The dog bowl is of good size and should hold enough food for any dog. It is made out of stainless steel and is washable. The outer section (where the digital scale is located) is made of plastic. The main dog food bowl can be taken out at any time for cleaning.
What I don’t like about the Skymee feeding bowl
Durability will need to be tested over time
The inner bowl is made of stainless steel, but it appears to be pretty light. The outside container seems to be pretty sturdy overall, however since I just got the feeding bowl sent to me I have no idea how long it will actually hold up. The digital scale is inside of plastic (not glass). Use caution when cleaning.
Summing up – is this smart digital feeding bowl for you?
I’m not sure how many people actually need this type of technology when it comes to feeding their pets. For persons wanting to make sure that their dog is not over eating this seems ideal. At the current price of under $20.00 you can’t go wrong. Highly Recommended!
