US:Roe v Wade, don’t just delete period tracking apps, smart watches are a problem too

Since it became clear that the Roe v. Wade abortion ruling may be overturned by the U.S’s Supreme Court, women in America started ditching the popular period-tracking apps from their phones from fears of persecution in states where abortion can now be made illegal, but that’s only one problem with regards to your privacy.

Smartwatches are the next bio-metric gathering device that will be used against you.

In just about all cases the smart watch manufacturer forces you to obtain an account with the company where your data is ‘owned’ by that corporation where the data can be later sold to other corporations and passed on to government and non-government organisations, to be used not for your benefit.

Smart watches have been able to obtain your unique heart ‘fingerprint’ and now with oxygen saturation (Sp02) and period tracking new bio-metrics are used against you.

We do not recommend the use of smart watches from the likes of Apple, FitBit, Garmin, Huawei, Samsung, etc with closed source programming but rather (lesser known) hardware like Amazfit, Casio, Mi (Xiaomi) or Sony that is compatible with applications that are open source like Gadgetbridgefrom f-droid.
