Fitbit Inspire HR

Review Date 10/23/19

If you want a little tracking--activity, heart rate, sleep--without the extra bells and whistles, this little bracelet could be for you. Just think, in the year 1819, the word tracker meant someone who was good at finding and following animals (or people). Now, in the year 2019, tracker means technology we strap to ourselves to tell us how many steps we've taken a day. Bet they never saw that coming back in 1819.

What could happen if something went wrong

Fitbit does a good job with privacy and security and de-identifies the data it collects so it's (hopefully) not personally identifiable. We say hopefully because, depending on the kind of data, it’s been found to be pretty easy to de-anonymize these data sets and track down an individual’s patterns, especially with location data. So, just be completely aware you are strapping on device with a built-in microphone that tracks your location, heart rate, sleep patterns, and more. That's a lot of personal information gathered in one place.
