NICORETTE® QuickMist SmartTrack™ uses Near Field Communication (NFC) technology – this is the same technology used for contactless payments, so you can use it as you would when using Apple Pay or making contactless payments on your card.
Firstly, make sure that your phone is compatible with the product: iPhone 7 and more recent models support NFC but please refer to your phone’s settings if you’re not sure. iPhone users will require iOS 11 and above. The majority of latest Android devices support NFC already, please make sure you have enabled NFC in your phone settings.
The next thing to check is that you’ve downloaded the NICORETTE® Stop Smoking app and that you’ve set up your profile on the app. You can download the app here.
Lastly, check that your phone is unlocked and that you’re tapping the back of the product to the correct part of your phone. For example, if you have an iPhone ensure the back of the cannister is held against the top of the back/front of your phone. Whereas if you have an Android make sure you tap to the back of your phone. If you have a phone case on, remove this to see if it is blocking the connection of the product to your phone.
For some phone models, you may also need to have the app open already.
You can’t track usage when your phone is locked – this is to ensure you don’t accidentally track additional usage. Some phone models support tracking when the app is not open. If your phone supports this, just tap the back of the cannister to the back of your phone as you usually would, and a small window will pop up asking if you want to track one usage; you must click yes to track.
NICORETTE® QuickMist SmartTrack™ is compatible with mobile phones that support the use of NFC (near field communication): iPhone 7 and more recent models support NFC but please refer to your phone’s settings if you’re not sure. iPhone users will require iOS 11 and above. The majority of latest Android devices support NFC already, please make sure you have enabled NFC in your phone settings.
iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus and X users must open the app to record a spray. Press '+' and select 'Quickmist SmartTrack'. Tap and hold your phone against the NFC chip on the mouthspray label after every spray.
A Near Field Communication (NFC) chip is housed in the back of the NICORETTE® QuickMist cannister. You may not have heard of this term but it’s likely that you use it or have seen people use it - this is the technology you find in contactless cards and utilised in Apple pay. When the NFC chip is in close proximity to the back of your phone it tracks one spray from your Nicorette® QuickMist SmartTrack™ in the NICORETTE® Stop Smoking app. You can find more information on how to use the product within the NICORETTE® Stop Smoking app.
To track your NRT usage, tap the back of the Nicorette® QuickMist SmartTrack™ cannister to the back of your phone. Your phone should be unlocked and on some phone models, you will also need to open the NICORETTE® Stop Smoking app. A window will pop up asking if you want to track a usage, you must click ‘yes’. If you have done so by accident, click ‘cancel’ instead. Every tap tracks one spray used from the cannister, so if you tap the product to your phone 3 times, 3 sprays will be recorded in the app. It is also possible to manually record a usage by clicking on the “+” icon on the navigation bar at the bottom of the app screen. For users tracking NICORETTE® QuickMist or NICORETTE® QuickMist SmartTrack™ usage, please ensure you track a usage for each spray i.e. If you spray twice, track twice.
If you accidentally track NICORETTE® QuickMist or Quickmist SmartTrack™ usage and you’ve not yet confirmed your track, you can click ‘cancel’ within the pop up that asks you if you want to track a usage. If you do accidentally record a use, it is possible to delete a tracked usage. Simply go to the dashboard, click on the box at the top left corner where it shows the number of NRT uses. Then click on the bin icon next to the NRT tracked usage you would like to delete.
The app is designed to be used with NICORETTE® QuickMist SmartTrack. However, you can also track any NRT usage in the app. Please note that NICORETTE® QuickMist SmartTrack™ is our only connected NRT product; if you’re using any other NRT products you must track them manually on the app. To manually track NRT usage and Cigarettes smoked in the app click the “+” icon on the navigation bar at the bottom of the app screen.
The app is personalised to your user profile so you can shape your personalised plan based on how you want to quit smoking. This means that you can track cigarette usage overtime without the help of NRT. The app was developed with behavioural scientists and includes lots of support content; this can be used with or without the use of NRT.
If you lapse back into smoking or need to reset the app for another reason, you can do so in the ‘Settings’ section. This will reset all your data within the app – please note resetting the app will mean you will lose any previous tracking you have recorded.

● Level 2 helps you to reduce the number of cigarettes you smoke over a period of time.

The next level is ‘unlocked’ after completion of all goals in the previous level, with the exception of Level 1 which can be skipped (so level 2 is unlocked straight away) if you do not wish to complete the goals.
