'There have been reports of Fitbits shocking wearers as well as causing rashes and other undesirable and scary issues. Of course, activity trackers emit Electromagnetic Radiation which can cause a multitude of bothersome as well as life threatening health issues (see 1, 2). Nevertheless, many people still wear these devices and strap them on their children. Doctors sometimes prescribe them to patients so they can remotely check their vital signs. Employers sometimes require employees to wear them. And nursing homes often require residents to wear them so that staff can more easily track them.'
