    This Apple Watch app will count down your life expectancy

    Rehabstudio has created Life Clock, a new app for the Apple Watch that counts down to your last day in life.
    You have 57 years, 11 months, two days, nine hours, six minutes and 52 seconds left until you die, and this new Apple Watch app will remind you every step of the way.

    Life Clock uses personal data to let you know when the things you do affect your life expectancy. For example, if you were to sleep only five hours when you're supposed sleep eight, the app would deduct 26 minutes from your life expectancy. However, if you complete a 30-minute workout session, the app restores 36 minutes to your time.

    The app, which was created by digital design group Rehabstudio, basically works as an activity tracker that measures both your healthful activity and your indulgence in bad habits.

    "In essence, the idea is we discount the future in favor of the present," said Tom Le Bree, partner with Rehabstudio, in an interview with WIRED. "Tomorrow, I'm the guy that goes to the gym, quits smoking and stops eating fatty foods. But today I'm going to have one last cigarette."

    Rehabstudio wants the app to remind users of the future so they can make healthier decisions in the present.

    Life Clock will launch in April when the Apple Watch hits the consumer market. It will have five different customizable faces that will remind users of their time left on this Earth.

    Utter rubbish. There are plenty of people who live to be 85 or 90 after years of smoking and drinking, and plenty of people in top physical condition who drop dead of massive coronaries or strokes at 50. The app does not take genetics or hidden physical problems into account. George Burns smoked and drank and lived to 100. Bob Hope too. My uncle smoked cigars all his life and ate fatty foods galore. He lived to be 85 and was healthy 99% of that time. Conversely, a friend of mine was a workout junkie - he ran every day, went to the gym regularly, ate low carb, low fat foods, cholesterol 125, blood pressure amazing. One day, while descending a flight of stairs in his house, he suffered a brain aneurism. No warnings, nothing. Boom. Dead on the spot at age 49.
