Fitbit knows things you hadn’t even considered.

A husband turned to Reddit to seek advice on unusual readings on his wife’s fitness tracker.

“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’m not sure if something is wrong with the sensor. Is there a way to reset or recalibrate the device? Id like to try that before I contact customer service about a possible replacement.”

Several Reddit users offered suggestions about how the Fitbit might be fixed but one reply focused more on the person wearing the device.

“Has she experienced anything really stressful in the last few days or is it a possibility she is pregnant,” wrote one user.

“I might be a dad, YIKES. Now I gotta watch my own heart rate lol,” he responded.

A day later, he posted that his wife was indeed pregnant.


“Thank you all for your overwhelming support! Its been awesome to read all the comments and well wishes, even the comments questioning whether I am in fact the father (gotta have a sense of humor on here, right?). I just wanted to say this is indeed real, I do not work for fitbit, this is not guerrilla marketing.

This is real, the fear is real, the excitement is very real! I am a regular guy who was just looking for the communities help with his wife’s technology issue (we’ve all been there, right?). Little did i know I got alot 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. “
