Has anyone used or thought about using one of the major brand fitness trackers with an Android device running /e/? With my iPhone it was pretty easy…Apple Watch, but the question gets a little harder with Android and even more so if you start to care about your data. Looking at the Samsung Health and FitBit apps in ‘Apps’ on my device shows that quite a few trackers come with either app. That doesn’t even address the question of what servers the health data is transported to.
Does using a fitness tracker basically come down to trusting the company with your data it to abuse it? Is it possible to be too paranoid? I feel like it would be unfortunate if those of us who are trying to be more privacy minded are locked out of the fitness tracker market.
Be interested in everyone’s thoughts on the subject.
