Fitbit Detects A Woman's Pregnancy Before She Does

February 10, 2016

On Reddit's fitbit forum, user YoungPTone showed concerns about his wife's device malfunctioning in a post titled, "HR reading consistently high last few days."

He wrote:

"My wife's fitbit is showing her heartbeat being consistently high over the last few days. 2 days ago, a somewhat normal day, she logged 10 hours in the fat burning zone, which I would think to be impossible based on her activity level. Also her calories burned do seem accurate. I would imagine if she was in the the fat burning zone she would burn a ton of calories, so it's not lining up.

Im not sure if something is wrong with the sensor. Is there a way to reset or recalibrate the device? I'd like to try that before I contact customer service about a possible replacement."

Many responses came in about software updates, but one woman suggested that the fitbit is working fine -- and his wife may be pregnant.

"Has she experienced anything really stressful in the last few days or is it a possibility she is pregnant?"

Less than 24 hours later, it was confirmed. YoungPTone returned to the forum and replied,

"Im going to be a dad!"

"I just wanted to say this is indeed real," he added in a recent update. "This is real, the fear is real, the excitement is very real! I am a regular guy who was just looking for the community's help with his wife's technology issue (we've all been there, right?). Little did I know I got a lot more than I bargained for! Now I'm a regular guy who is preparing to have his first child brought into the world, God willing, in Oct 2016."
