Samsung Gear Sport

When it's time to get in shape, what better helper than a watch that keeps track of your calories, tells you when and how to workout , even tells you when to stretch on that long flight home. This smart timepiece and personal workout coach also texts, tracks your location, makes calls, plays music, and has an app that measures the air quality around you. It does everything but the actual working out--you still have to do that yourself.

Shares your information with 3rd parties for unexpected reasons
Nearly every company collects some kind of information on its users. That’s how the internet works. It’s how they use and care for this information that matters. You should know whether a company shares or sells your personal information to others and for what reasons. For the purpose of this report Mozilla determined that if according to a company’s privacy policy, it appeared to share data with third parties that could then use that information to market or advertise to customers, then we labeled it as “Shares information with third parties for unexpected reasons.” This does not mean your information is definitely used for these purposes. Simply that the policy leaves the possibility open your information could be used in this way.
