Woman discovered her husband was ‘cheating’ after noticing a pattern on fitness app

A woman discovered that her husband had been ‘cheating’ after noticing a strange pattern on a fitness tracker that he had been using.It’s fair to say that things have changed a lot since the advent of the internet and the widespread use of mobile phones.The technology has brought with it a massive increase in how much our lives are surveilled.It would be a nightmare for people like Mad Men lothario Don Draper, with his periodic disappearances into a booze and sex-filled misadventure.This is a bit more difficult when you have a device in your pocket or strapped to your wrist, which broadcasts your location and even records your heart rate.Megan McGee certainly made this discovery when she noticed an unusual pattern on a fitness tracker that her husband had been using.These are hugely popular as they can help people to track their progress and build up a routine, but it was that data which led Megan to her discovery.Megan explained how she caught out her ex.
