There’s an App For That, Thanks to a French eCig Company

According to an article a French e-cigarette company has produced an e-cigarette that tracks your vaping experience via an app.  Of course the article touts this as a first, but there are other devices on the market like the eVic. Still this one is interesting because it tracks way more than how many puffs and their duration.

it tells you when, where, and for how long you tend to vape, which can give insight into what triggers a nicotine craving: Late-night drinking binges? Stress at work? It tells you how many puffs of the e-cig you've taken and how many analog cigarettes that would have translated to, thus calculating how much sin-tax money you've saved. But the most striking feature is the little heart icon that's colored red over time as you e-smoke yourself back to health. The app tracks blood oxygenation, heart rejuvenation, and calculates how many days you've added back onto your life.

It seems ironic that this came from a French company since the courts decided to hand e-cigarettes over to the tobacco industry.  Possibly one of the least innovative industries when it comes to stuff that doesn't kill people.
