Fitbit Captures The Exact Moment Of Devastating Heartbreak

Posted by Arsalan Ahmed in Bizarre On 22nd January 2016

Koby Soto was having a tougher day than most, and he has the data to prove it. His S.O. of one month decided to end things rather quickly and Soto didn’t take the news lightly. He knew it was a traumatic experience, but he learned even more when he checked his Fitbit later that day. The data revealed that when the news was dropped on him, his heart rate skyrocketed and became very erratic.

#1 Originally, he posted the image because he thought a few of his tech friends would find it interesting. He had no idea the Tweet would attract so much attention. "I'm absolutely overwhelmed … it's attention I'm not used to."

#2 "It's funny, because [the Fitbit] thought I was working out, but I wasn’t doing anything." It's a curious find, as pre-break-up Soto's heart rate was only 60 BPM, but after the bad news it jumped as high as 120 BPM.

#3 Soto said he wasn't surprised at the data his Fitbit had collected. "The fact that wearables are so common these days, especially ones measuring heartbeat, lets us look at stuff we already knew about," he said. "Everyone's had a breakup, so everyone knows the feeling. It's interesting to see the literal measurements and not to just talk about emotions."

#4 He chalked up the long-lasting, elevated heart rate to his habit of returning to the incident over and over in his mind. "I'm quite an emotional type of guy, so when I'm in a breakup, I'm in a constant bad mood and constant stress."
