I’ve been following the disappearance of college student Mollie Tibbetts. It’s in a very rural area that rarely sees this type of crime.
The FBI is analyizing her Fitbit.
I don’t use one. How detailed is the saved information?
Can you see your runs on a map? The exact times and duration?
Is heartrate and oxygen levels recorded? Would fear or a violent attack show as a spike in the data? Pinpointing when it occurred.
Could a smart criminal easily wipe that data? I’d guess it’s backed up on Fitbit’s servers.
My heart goes out to the family. I raised two daughters. I think of the days when we brought them home from the hospital. The long sleepless nights rocking them to sleep. Birthday parties, and all the major milestones as they grew up. I taught both to drive. They’re in college and I would lose my mind if something like this happened.
I can’t imagine how any family deals with the loss of a child.
