Ever wondered if your Fitbit would be more useful if you, say, swallowed it? OK, us either, but according to reports by Business Insider, Jawbone is developing a new fitness tracker that will be taken like a pill.
A pill would be more accommodating for competitions. Much as I want to record myself, I don’t want to loose my 910XT… But I don’t think the pill captures data – it probably would work like Garmin Vector pedals, which require a head unit to make sense of the data. That’d defeat the purpose of the pill, if we still have to wear a head unit.
Have to wait and see what actually gets to market.
