You think a wearable is your ticket to better health? If you do, I have beachfront property in Nevada to sell you. Don’t worry about what’s on your wrist.Get off your ass.

While the cash and charitable donations briefly stemmed the tide against a reduction in “physical activity,” they did absolutely nothing to improve health. That’s because if you are worried about “physical activity,” such as the government’s get-your-10,000 steps-daily nonsense, you really aren’t serious about fitness or health. Like a little kid craving a participation trophy, you’re willing to accept a trinket as a proxy for actual results. That’s how you get to employers thinking about inserting themselves into your health life.
