We already track our calories, our steps, our caffeine intake and our sleep.

So why not track our bowel movements?

"It's called D Free, and it's a wearable device that lets you know when you need to go to the bathroom," the D Free narrator said.

D Free is a wearable that uses ultrasound technology to monitor your internals.

It links with an app to keep track of things — 100 percent means it's time to go!

"Every time you go to the bathroom, D Free will take note of it. It will learn about your lifestyle," the D Free narrator said.

Yeah, it doesn't stop tracking things.

And gets better at knowing when you need to go.

It was created for those with incontinence, but D Free says it will work for anyone.

So ignore your body's signals, and let your smartphone do the work!
