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.

Geeksme BrandMovie LifeLoversWatch

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.

Honor’s MagicWatch 2 wins at fitness tracking, but fails to set itself apart
honor magicwatch 2 hands on features price photos release date face

The Honor MagicWatch 2 is a frustrating little thing. On the one hand, it’s entirely derivative of the already available Huawei Watch GT2, and on the other, it’s a dependable fitness-orientated smartwatch that offers great value and strong battery life. Because the design is something we’ve seen before, it doesn’t feel as fresh as it really should, but as a fitness companion, it’s great.

Is this enough for us to forgive the Honor MagicWatch 2 for a familiar design and recommend it?

Does tracking your sleep actually help you sleep better? We asked an expert
Sleep Number It Bed review

Modern life simply isn't conducive to getting a good night's sleep. There's artificial light everywhere, we spend hours glued to screens, and it's not unusual to be checking work emails on your phone at night, last thing before you go to bed. We know that the potential health consequences of not getting enough sleep are severe, ranging from obesity and hypertension, to diabetes and heart disease. There's also the immediate impact on work performance, the risks of drowsy driving, and the higher incidence of accidents to contend with when we're tired.

It's no wonder sleep technology has been on the rise. There's no shortage of gadgets and apps that claim they can offer us a sound night's rest, or help us better understand whether we're getting the recommended full forty winks every night. There's a myriad of sleep tracking options out there, from fitness tracking bands to mats you put under your mattress, and even apps that run on your phone on the nightstand next to you.
