Despite being a health nut, I was hesitant to hop onto the wearable fitness tracker bandwagon. At first I thought it was creepy that it could track your location and your sleep patterns. But soon after I found myself addicted to the data, even checking my sleep stats the moment I woke up every morning.
Having a fitness tracker is like having a clingy significant other. Your relationship is fun and exciting at first. You’re trying things you’ve never done before (aka walked around your neighborhood) and it’s pushing you to be a better version of yourself. But you soon realize that it’s actually controlling your behavior. Telling you to move every hour (excuse me, I’m busy) and making you a slave to everything it says. Not sure what I mean? Here are some signs that you should kick your fitness tracker to the curb.
