Police Using Fitbit Data Against You?

Fitbit ForceI’m not talking the fat police either.  I’m talking about someone going to jail based on what a fitness tracker told police.

The details are explained here . It should give everyone pause for concern.  The obvious thing is “don’t do anything wrong,” but the problems go deeper than that.  For example, given that people know how these trackers are used, what could stop someone from switching yours out and framing you.  I know I’ve accidentally picked up my spouse’s tracker before.  The Supreme Court is already grappling with issues of cell phone towers and privacy.  Their decision might impact cases like this as well.
