Apple Watches, GPS watches, step counters, smart phones, and fitness trackers.
Sensors in our shoes.
Sensors in the kitchen.
The sources for live health and fitness data these days are seemingly endless, and with each new gadget, data tracking becomes a bigger part of our everyday life.
But is all that data really useful? And if it is, when does it become too much?
Of course there’s no right answer, but those are the questions we try to tackle in today’s episode. We discuss the trend towards more data, how it can be helpful, and why too much data caused me to assume the worst about my health.
And of course, we poke fun of those 10,000 steps everyone is suddenly trying to hit.
Here’s what we talk about in this episode:
- Why blood work left me in a panic
- Do we really know how to interpret all this data?
- How you should be using the information you collect
- A case for not tracking your runs
- A case for tracking each and every workout
