From Smart Design, the Water Watcher device will light up when you use too much water. The tracking gadget and app tells you how much water is moving through your drains to help stop water wastage. Proven to curb water consumption by 20%, this environmentally friendly invention is ideal for the eco-conscious as well as people in communities suffering from a lack of water (like those affected by the California draught).

The Water Watcher easily connects to a range of pipes, from your shower to your kitchen sink. Every time a gallon of water goes through your tap, the device lights up in a way that is intentionally unantagonizing. Meanwhile the app tracks how much water you are using over time.
