The pitcher's pitch

The Brita Infinity costs $45 -- $20 more than an identical-looking Brita pitcher with no smarts to speak of.

It's in the lid

For your extra 20 bucks, the pitcher will track your fill-ups by way of a sensor in the lid. Whenever you hold it open for a few seconds, it'll count that as a fill-up. Lower the lid back down, and those lights will illuminate to show you how far along into the filter's life cycle you are. Once you hit 40 gallons, the pitcher will go ahead and order a replacement filter via Amazon Dash replenishment.

Thirsty?

The pitcher holds eight cups of water. Empty it once a day, and the filter should last you about three months.
