Description

The rise of wearable devices like the Apple Watch and Fitbit offer us the ability to turn our daily lives into an never-ending catalog of interpretable data: tracking how many steps we take, the number of calories we consume, our REM sleep cycles, and even the health of our hearts.

Now a team of researchers at Dartmouth say those wearables can serve another purpose: determining whether you’re a productive employee. The data-obsessed may be quick to embrace such an assessment, but what if an employer has access that information as well?
