Vaping is a controversial habit: it certainly has its downsides, but anecdotally it’s a fantastic smoking cessation aid.
But generally when vaping habits are studied, they rely on self-report data, not proprietary apps.
It sits idle until the user breathes in, which activates the e-cigarette’s circuits, and the PuffPacket’s as well.
This data is sent to the smartphone app via Bluetooth, where it is cross-referenced with other information, like location, motion and other metadata.
Perhaps even (with the proper permissions) it could track use of certain apps — Instagram and vape?
