There's been a few out there, and most are poorly received (brewbug, etc).

But this one looks decent and reasonably priced:  https://tilthydrometer.com/
Designed for home brewing, the Tilt is a wireless hydrometer that lets you instantly read your brew's specific gravity and temperature on your compatible Apple iPhone/iPad or Android smartphone/tablet or Tilt Pi. Most Bluetooth 4.0+ devices will work with the Tilt. You can then optionally save the data automatically to the cloud
The specific gravity is accurate +/- 0.002 within the Tilt's range of 0.990 to 1.120. The thermometer is accurate +/- 1 degree F (+/- 0.5 degree C).
Brewers must have an intimate understanding of the physics of heating and cooling, the hard science of enzymes and fermentation- and then forget it all to achieve a gut-level Zen instinct for the process.

Any clue as to how this senses SG. All it seems to suggest is that there's an accelerometer and a temperature sensor.

Sir Vorlauf

I think it's about buoyancy and maybe something else. Not sure what the accelerometer is for.   Other items like this go by co2 produced which doesn't seem at all accurate.
