I went for a walk this evening, and on return headed to the toilet. So far so good, except that I was still wearing my ‘smart’ watch. As I turned around and flushed the watch buzzed. I looked at the screen to see the message:
Now wash your hands for 40 seconds. Start timer?
I do not recall being notified that my watch was watching me quite so closely! While I am a keen non-religious ablutionist (in fact, somewhat at the obsessive/compulsive end of the spectrum) I do not appreciate that my device knows what I am doing and when! Normally I do not wear it at home, but this evening I neglected to take it off immediately. From now this watch is only going to be worn when I am out tracking my exercise.
Has anyone else had an experience like this, of their device suddenly intruding into the real world and telling them what they should do?
