This cool fitness watch is yours for $94, and it tracks steps, sleep, and sex

Geeksphone, the Spanish company best known for jointly developing the super-secure Blackphone device, has relesased its first wearable. Under the name Geeksme, it’s a fitness/lifestyle tracker that in addition to all the usual fitness tracking stuff like step counting and calorie burn, gives the wearer the chance to monitor their sexual activity.

Release and specs revealed

Geeksphone has been teasing the watch’s release for a while, but finally in mid-October, it put the wearable on sale through its own website, and provided all the spec details we could want.

The circular face has a monochrome OLED screen with a basic 64 x 64 pixel resolution, and it’s covered in tempered glass, and wrapped in an aluminum body. The strap is made of a washable elastomer and measures 18mm across. The watch face is 32mm in diameter, and the whole splash resistant package weighs around 28 grams.

Progress towards your daily goal is indicated by 12 LED lights around the screen’s edge, and there are four different modes — fitness, sleep, love, and ecological — about which we’d heard things before. A tiny 55mAh battery is inside that will last for about five days before needing a 90-minute recharge, and Bluetooth 4.0 is used to connect to a supporting app on your Android or iOS device.

The Geeksme watch costs 100 euros, or $94 plus local tax and shipping.

Four modes, including sleep and sex tracking

Geeksme spent a year on development and design of the watch, and also found time to come up with four main modes of operation. Ready for the ridiculous names? They are g!fitness, g!sleep, g!love, and g!ecological. Obviously, it’s the sex tracking mode, called g!love, that’s getting the attention. However, Geeksphone’s quick to point out this is an optional feature, and just a part of leading an overall healthy lifestyle.

Activating the feature right before you get intimate with your partner will provide you data on the amount of time you spend, the intensity, and calories burned, plus how often you have sex. Post-coitally, you can rate the experience inside the Geeksme watch, which won’t ruin the moment at all. Naturally from the makers of the Blackphone, if you choose to share both your upright and horizontal jogging activity, it’ll make sure all the data is kept private and confidential.

The g!fitness mode will count your steps, measure calorie and fat burn, and provide graphs and stats inside the app. Wear the Geeksme at night and it’ll keep you informed of light and deep sleep patterns, how long you spend asleep, and if you woke up during the night. Finally, the g!ecological mode lets the wearer log activities that can be used to establish their impact — positively and negatively — on the environment.

Eventually it will also perform a few smartwatch-style functions, including call and message notifications, but this will arrive as a software update in the future. The Geeksme wearable communicates with an app for Android and iOS smartphones, and has a 30-day memory of its own, so you won’t need to sync it everyday.
