"Track your every move with ease" says the marketing website for this fitness tracker. For those of you who want to have every move of yours tracked with ease, this tracker does it -- activity, heart rate, sleep, stress, all tracked and shared with an app on your phone. Wasn't there a time when people didn't want their every move tracked by anyone but Santa Claus?
What could happen if something goes wrong?
This device tracks your location, heart rate, sleep patterns, stress and more. That's a lot of personal information gathered in one place. And Samsung says they may share your data with business affiliates who make predictions about your interests and target you with ads. That means it's possible you could get have crazy insomnia and sleep terribly for a couple months, Samsung could know that and share that data with someone who will target you with ads for sleeping pills everywhere you go. You try the sleeping pills out, get addicted, and end up needing rehab.
