They also use fitbit to see how much you walk
" When he asked why, she explained that she “needed the steps” on her Fitbit to sign in to her social media accounts. If she fell below the right number of steps, it would lower her health and fitness rating, which is part of her social rating, which is monitored by the government. A low social rating could prevent her from working or traveling abroad."

Pretty soon something like a fitbit+ can just be injected at birth.

Just out of interest, on this international forum, where is right here?

I used an improper short form so I guess you missed it. NA = North America

Damn. I did see it but did not take it in. Sorry.

Don’t be sorry as it wasn’t even written properly in short form. Also no need to be sorry over something like that.
