Ember's smartmugs can now track caffeine intake via the Apple Health app

in iPhone
Ember, the maker of smartmugs can that automatically regulate temperature, has added support for Apple's HealthKit platform as a way of monitoring caffeine intake.

Ember Travel Mug and iPhone


The feature is possible because mug owners can manually enter what they drink into the Ember iPhone app, and sensors can detect how much liquid is actually remaining. That data is analyzed and synced with the native iOS Health app.

If a person consumes too much caffeine, Health should be able to flag this problem and warn how it might affect things like sleep and heart rate, CNET noted.

Few if any other HealthKit-enabled accessories are able to track nutrition. Most are limited to tracking activity, weight, and/or heart rate, leaving nutrition to manual entry in apps like MyFitnessPal.

Ember sells two mugs through Amazon fulfillment: a ceramic one for homes and offices costs $79.95, while a larger travel mug retails for $149.95. A white version of the travel mug is available from Apple.

    But don't most people have their coffee at the same time(s) each day?

    A solution looking for a problem.

    How’s about someone creating a WiFi-enabled toilet with an iPhone app so I can track each time I take a load out?

    Finally. Now I can ensure I am getting my daily minumum dosage of caffeine. You never know when someone tries to pass decaffinated on you.

    Every time I have coffee, I just click on "Add Caffiene" shortcut icon and it's added to Health report. Done. How hard can it be?

    There are not enough facepalm memes on the internet to do this justice.

    I don't have a problem. It's the cup and my Apple Watch that have the problem!

    What is this "too much caffeine" of which you speak?  Sounds like fake news to me.

    This is insane when we have to keep track every little thing in life.
