FitBit Zip – a pretty cool wearable tech fitness gadget

If you are like me at all, your life is too busy to be thinking about fitness during the day.  Then, when you have the time, you’ve spent all your energy.

But what if you were thinking of fitness all through the day?  What if you actually found the time, in dozens of small doses throughout the day?

That is the idea behind FitBit Zip, a tiny piece of wearable tech that tracks your movements all day long.  Just knowing that it is tracking every step you take can inspire you to change habits, such as…

  • Park your car further from the store, so you get to walk a little more (and less likely to get dinged by someone else’s car door!)
  • Take the stairs instead of the elevator.
  • Go for a walk at lunch.

The FitBit Zip - cool wearable tech fitness gadget
    It syncs with most computers and mobile devices, so you can set goals and  track your progress anywhere.

    Best of all, this wearable tech fitness gadget is both fashionable and discreet.  From the company website:

    “Wear it in your pocket, on a belt, or a bra – this tracker
    is as discreet or as visible as you want it to be. Its
    silicone clip will keep you comfortable throughout the day. Zip™ is also rain, splash, and sweat-proof. With a
    replaceable watch battery that lasts up to six months,
    it’s excuse-proof too.”

    Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

    Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

    Does technology have all the answers?

    This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

    Creating technological solutions transparently

    This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

    Technology as the connecting tool

    Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

    “Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
