If you wanted to check your steps, heart rate, quality of sleep, and some other stuff, then you needed to get a Fitbit. Why do you ask? If you were concerned about your health. Then you needed one of these.
Founded in 2007 in San Francisco, California and they made a variety of products. They filed an IPO in 2015 but the stock fell in 2016 up to 50% and it was in the midst of a reorganization.

Well, I never used one but my wife did and she liked it. It kept track of her steps and that is what she wanted. So that came in handy for her. If I ever wore it to see what type of sleep I get I could tell you right now I don’t need something to tell that my quality of sleep is the worst. I don’t sleep that well.
