FitBit is a nifty little gadget, isn't it? Not only does the watch track your heart rate, fitness levels and, in some models, your sleep patterns, but it can also tell you things about your body that you didn't hitherto know.
One man, YoungPTone, took to FitBit's Reddit forum to ask about some issues with his wife's FitBit:
"My wife's Fitbit is showing her heartbeat being consistently high over the last few days. 2 days ago, a somewhat normal day, she logged 10 hours in the fat burning zone, which I would think to be impossible based on her activity level. Also her calories burned do seem accurate..."
He claimed the gizmo was showing erratic results.
Clearly the device's sensor must be malfunctioning. Was it possible to recalibrate? He wanted to check with fellow users before contacting FitBit's customer service reps to arrange for a replacement.
Bet he's glad he did.
"Has she experienced anything really stressful in the last few days or is it a possibility she is pregnant?" asked user, Thatwasunpleasant.
Turns out, Thatwasunpleasant experienced the same set of wonky stats, only to find out she was expecting.
Sure enough, YoungPTone came back with the verdict: I'm going to be a dad!
Ladies, pay close attention to your FitBit... If it gets out of whack with your body's usual rhythms, it may be trying to tell you something.
