The Secrets of Wearable Tech (Fitbit, Apple Watch, etc)

I tried to find a recent article to describe some of the "data danger" from wearable techs. No I'm not talking about someone using your FitBit data against you in a court of law - but just how much data your wearable tech will eat up!

Here's a quickie article about the anticipation of wearable tech and data boom

And a discussion on the Fitbit community about data usage & syncing https://community.fitbit.com/t5/Flex/Will-GPS-use-up-phones-data-plan-result-in-a-high-cell-phone-bi...

With the gift giving holidays coming up and Cyber Monday's shipments coming this week and next, I'm sure many of you bought some wearable tech, or new WiFi enabled devices! I think I even saw a pressure cooker with bluetooth at Bestbuy! I encourage everyone to leave a tip in the comments about a piece of new technology to look out for that can use up your data, even if its just a few lost bytes!
