Brush up!

The toothbrush portion of the SmartSeries doesn't look too different from Oral-B's previous toothbrushes. There's still the rechargeable base for which you can add the changeable toothbrush heads. The difference here is that the SmartSeries talks to your smartphone via Bluetooth 4.0 and shows a load of stats on a mobile app.

Two timed

Oral-B suggests two minutes as the optimal time for a good brushing session. As you scrub your choppers, the app will time your session and show how far you've progressed toward your goal.

Weather? Why not?

And because such information is so vital to your oral health, the app also tell you the local weather.
