Electronic cigarettes are growing in popularity as an alternative to smoking, as it replaces the actual smoke with vapor. This allows them to be used inside places where traditional cigarettes are not allowed. A new product has just been announced called Smokio, which takes the electronic portion of electronic cigarettes to heart, adding connections to smartphones that allows users to track all kinds of data about their smoking habits.

The Smokio e-cig uses Bluetooth Smart to connect to an Android or iOS device. From there the user downloads the free application and uses it to monitor key data, as well as manage some functions of the electronic cigarette itself. For example, a user can alter the amount of vapor given off with each puff. The app also allows the user to monitor the 900-mAh battery of the e-cig, which promises seven hours of use and multiple days of standby time.

In addition, the app promises to grant users the ability to monitor data such as where they have used the e-cig, how often they're smoking, and even how many real cigarettes they would have smoked based on the number of puffs taken from the vaporizer. With this data, users can see how much they have saved compared to traditional cigarettes and an estimation of how much their health has improved.

Outside of the application, Smokio is a pretty standard e-cig, using a liquid and a vaporizer to generate the "smoke" that a user puffs.

The starter kit is apparently only aimed at filling the oral fixation part of a nicotine addiction, as the liquid included is nicotine-free. The company plans to launch its new product soon at a €79.90 (US$109) price tag. It did not announce in what regions it will be made available.

It is amazing how far electronic cigarettes have come since they first appeared. People seem to have moved away from the idea of them having to look like a real cigarette and now they have took on an identity of their own. I believe that the e-cigs that look like real cigarettes with die out completely and these new gadget type e-cigs are becoming more and more widely accepted. I think the more this happens the faster tobacco cigarettes will cease to exist. I was looking at some pretty good e-cig gadgets but this bluetooth device takes it a step further. Great product.

The bluetooth capability is just a gimmick that the typical user will abandon in a few days and the no nic liquid is merely a dodge to keep the Feds off their backs. Obviously after the purchase one can use any liquid at all in it. The price is absurd--two to three times what a similar un-toothy rig would cost. Sucker bait.

@MarkySparky I must agree with you, I have been a ecigarette user for nearly *4 years which is near the beginning of them and seeing how far they have come is amazing, Couple of things What really grinds my gears is today press regarding the so called Health issues and people slating them when not really knowing anything about the the products.

At the end of the day I am much healthier since taking this on board compared to when I was smoking, it has become a hobby believe it or not - the amount of new upgrades you get, new flavors and so on.
