Activity trackers make us face the truth
Tuesday, March 17, 2015 — I regularly wear a slender, black rubber bracelet on my left wrist. It’s not one of those silicone bracelets with an awareness saying imprinted on it, the kind that can be purchased in bulk. It contains a computer device that tracks how many steps I take each day and when that activity occurs (certainly not when I am writing at the computer); the distance I cover in a day; and how many calories I burn.
This piece of “jewelry” was under the Christmas tree, a gift from my husband.
