Some of the data it measures includes duration of intercourse, calories burned, number of thrusts, speed of thrusts and girth measurements.

Priced at just more than $60, the i.Con isn't yet available. It can be used over and over again and is extremely comfortable, water resistant and lightweight, as per the company's website. It is actually a "smart" ring that fits over a standard dumb condom and tracks your sexual activity.

The device also records the amount of calories burnt, different positions and can detect chlamydia and syphilis.

If you ever looked at your wearable gadget and wished it would tell you how good you are at sex, then we have some news for you. "With over 96,000 pre-registrations for the product, we know that this is a complete game changer", Aaron Slater, British Condoms spokesperson said in a statement.

Plus, it aims to answer that age-old question: How do I stack up at sex to everyone else around the world?

For the full "Terminator" bionic man effect comes a brave-new-world condom ring to measure nearly everything guys have wanted to know about their sexual performance.

The i-Con Smart Condom Ring, which is now in its final stages of testing, doesn't officially hit shelves until later in 2017, but men can preregister for first dibs on condom rings online.

The ring, which comes with a one-year warranty, is reusable, thank goodness.

Users can also use the mobile application to share their performance publicly or anonymously. It sits at the base of the penis and uses a nano-chip and sensors to track the wearer's fornication. It has an integrated micro USB port for charging and each charge will last approximately 6-8 hours worth of "live" usage. Additionally, British Condoms claims that the i.Con should be able to "sense" sexually transmitted infections - a separate report from Mashable notes that this feature is still in the final stages of testing.
