A recent study published in the journal Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise found that using a physical activity tracker can cause more muscle pain. NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — There is a new warning for anyone using a physical activity tracker after some dangerous side effects have been reported. After intensive research, I came to the conclusion that your smartwatch is unlikely to cause pain in your arm or shoulder. There is no scientific evidence that smartwatch radiation causes health problems, and federal regulations are being developed to prevent it.
But using the watch incorrectly can cause pain in your arm. Bluetooth radiation from devices like a Fitbit, as you've probably seen in the video above, occurs in pulses. The EMF radiation from these pulses is an extremely short wavelength that travels at very high speeds and is extremely efficient at penetrating human tissue and can cause biological damage to the human body. A question I get a lot from my patients is: “Do you feel any pain when you wear a Fitbit? This is an important question because many people wonder if the device is causing damage to their muscles or not.
The short answer is no, it's not. What some people may notice is that Fitbit causes a small amount of discomfort, but this is normal. The discomfort they feel is due to the heat signal being interrupted by vibrations caused by the movement of the foot or leg. The California-based company admitted that a “limited percentage” of users reported skin irritation from constantly using the fitness tracker.
If you're worried about the possibility of muscle pain from using a fitness tracker, there are a few things you can do to minimize the risk. If you're looking for a fitness tracker that's highly accurate, you can consider a model that uses GPS and heart rate monitoring. You can reduce the radiation emitted by a FitBit by turning off things like the mobile connection and Bluetooth. A fitness tracker like Fitbit, your Samsung Watch, or the smart Apple Watch might be the only reason you avoid a serious medical emergency.
FitBit devices emit radiation in the form of radio frequency, electric fields and magnetic fields and could have a potential impact on the health of users. Fitbit claims that it takes all reports of potential problems very seriously and its products are designed to avoid electrical contact with the user. The results showed that the group that used physical activity trackers had higher levels of discomfort, sensitivity and fatigue in the upper arms. If you wore a Fitbit watch on your wrist and suddenly experience an attack, you'll instantly know what's going on inside your body.
In every reported case being investigated, Fitbit says the devices and batteries were completely intact and working, with no signs of overheating, voltage irregularities, or malfunctions of any kind. There are many people who suffer from headaches, muscle and joint pain, and other types of “health problems” because they use a Fitbit. However, the shake you feel when using a Fitbit can be very uncomfortable and can also cause some problems. If you have a Fitbit you are probably one of them, the reason is that these parables come with a light called amber that shines on your chest.
If you're worried about the EMFs on your fitness tracker, you can test it on a different part of your body, such as your ankle.
