Default [Q] email widget for "unseen" emails?

I just switched from windows phone to the lg g3. So far I am loving the switch. My only remaining issue is that windows phone had a feature where if you glanced at your inbox it would clear the "count" on the widget. As far as I can tell all of the android email widgets only show unread messages. This doesn't work for me as well.

Can anyone point me at a widget that behaves similar to the windows phone widget? Basically is shows the count of messages that have come in since the last time email was checked.

I still manage read/unread on the desktop.. but for mobile device this is sure a nice feature.

If you are willing to use nova launcher then you can install tesla unread settings which will provide you unread counters on the corresponding icon. That's what I use and I love it. Here's a screenie:
