Can it snoop on me?
How does it handle privacy?
What could happen if something went wrong
Garmin seems to do 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..
