Fitbit

If you are borderline hypochondriac then Fitbit will make sure you go the whole nine yards of obsessive compulsiveness about how your body is doing. At first the device sounds like a pedometer on steroids but considering you go to sleep with it and have it beam up data about your body, it is also an idea that can grow exponentially. Why stop at calorie counting and number of REMs per night, why not run a dialy set of diagnostic checks on everything else that's going on inside as well - after all you don't know you are supposed to worry about something that you don't know about.

I say, bring it on and lets start keeping track of the every functioning organ in our bodies and then some. Let's baseline ourself as we would have been with our "factory settings" intact and be alerted when our stats being to go awry. What is a new idea these days without a spot of social media thrown in for good measure. To wit :
You can login to the Fitbit website to see even more detailed data and also participate in collaborative fitness goals with friends, family and co-workers. Hook this puppy up to Twitter and we'll be tweeting our co-operative health and fitness.
