Think you eat too fast? A new, high-tech utensil, the HAPIFork, will let you know. It tracks how fast you eat, with the idea that the information will help you slow down so you lose weight and control acid reflux, among other health benefits.

The HAPIFork is just one product in the booming field of electronic health devices that monitor your eating and exercise habits, as well as your heart rate and blood pressure. The smart fork tracks your forkfuls per meal and per minute and times the interval between each. It will light up and vibrate if you take more than one forkful every 10 seconds.

The $ 100 HAPIFork, on sale this spring, is water-resistant, so you can throw it into the dishwasher along with your other utensils.

It’s unknown whether the device will really help you lose weight, though eating slowly is a commonly recommended dietary strategy. Chances are the HAPIFork won’t make much of a difference if you don’t make other changes, too. Our new Ratings of diet plans, based on feedback from thousands of dieters about an array of commercial and do-it-yourself weight-loss programs, will help you find a diet that will work for you.

The HAPIFork is one of a slew of new products our reporters saw at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Check out the rest of our CES 2013 coverage for news about the hottest new computers, digital cameras, smart phones, tablets, TVs, and tons of other products.
