Say hello to the fitness tracker that wants to monitor vigorous activity away from the gym or the running track. This smart wearable is all about tracking your downstairs activity and could also potentially help detect sexually transmitted diseases.

The i.Con Smart Condom, which is actually a ring that fits over your regulation jacket, was first announced last year and is now available to pre-order and claims to be the world's first device of its kind.

So what does it actually measure? Well, according to the folks over at British Condoms, the device will clear up any queries you have regarding thrust velocity and pace, how many calories you've burned, skin temperature and girth.

And just in case you have trouble with the ever-tricky areas of counting and short-term memory, the wearable will also let you know how many positions you managed to get through and, well, how many times you've just had sex.

If that wasn't enough information displayed on the companion app, there's also a competitive element involved, with your stats being stacked against the rest of the world — a great move for those looking to rapidly drain their self-esteem.

The ring will charge via Micro USB once you've burned through the six to eight hour battery life, with a one year warranty also available in case you somehow happen to break it.

With no real images of the device currently available on the site, it's hard to know just how the tech — which is a combination of nano-chips and sensors — will make it into the ring. We do know, though, that the i.Con will be available in one size thanks to a band adjustment feature.

While the wearable is currently available for pre-order on British Condoms for £59.99, the company says it won't take your money until it has a confirmed release date. And if you're one concern in all this happens to be data privacy, the page noted that all data will be kept anonymous — unless of course you, for some reason, want to share recent data with your pals or the wider world.

We advise you to discuss with your partner before slinging bare stats into the group chat.
