These chonky outdoor focused smart watches come in regular, solar powered, a tactical version, a camo version, and even a surfing version. They don't have the fancy touch screens, but they do track all sorts of information about your sleep, stress, heart rate, hike, workout, and help you find your way home if you get lost in the woods. They are rugged and cool. I only say that because this is the smartwatch your favorite *Privacy Not Included reviewer owns and loves. Thanks Garmin for doing a good job keeping my health data all to yourself.
O que pode acontecer se algo der errado?
When your *Privacy Not Included researcher wanted to get a fitness tracker, Garmin is what she went with. Garmin seems to do one of the best jobs handling the privacy and security of all the personal data fitness trackers collect. They did suffer that very public ransomware attack in 2020. Ransomware attacks suck and it seems no company is safe from them these days.
Garmin says they don’t sell your personal data to anyone. This is great. Garmin also seems to do a good job with what data they do share, which doesn’t seem to be too much. They ask for explicit consent before sharing things like location data for navigation purposes and emails for marketing.
Garmin may share or sell de-identified aggregate data collected by the Garmin Connect app with third parties to do things like make their features better or for research purposes. This doesn’t worry us too much. Although now is a good time to remind you that it’s been found to be pretty easy to de-anonymize some types of data and track down an individual’s patterns, especially with location data. If you’re worried about this, you can opt out of using the Garmin Connect app, you’ll just lose a lot of cool data about your sleep, stress, and menstrual cycles if you do.
Is our researcher happy with her decision to get a Garmin fitness tracker? Yes, she is. Although it does make her a little nervous that she now leaves her phone's Bluetooth on all the time. But hey, knowing that body battery score is really cool!
Dicas para se proteger
