Having our lives relentlessly tracked by all of our internet-enabled devices definitely has its benefits and makes scores of day-to-day tasks simpler and easier.
But there's an underbelly to all that data-tracking, as a woman on Twitter learned the hard way after her Apple Watch notified her family about her and her boyfriend's simultaneous "workouts."
Twitter user @lolgeorgee posted screenshots of the notifications showing what she and her boyfriend had been up to, and the tweet has since gone viral as others share in her embarrassment. See her tweet below.
Georgia captioned her Twitter photo:
"Not my family getting these notifications from me & my boyfriend on their apple watches 😭"
And it turns out, she's not alone in this experience.
Several others on Twitter shared similar mishaps with their Apple Watch notifications giving others updates on their, um, private activities.
One even had a story of being notified of their own mother's "workout" activities with her boyfriend. She responded to Georgia with the story:
"I'll never forget that time my mom was at her man's house and her Apple Watch told me...she had just finished a workout at 10pm."
Nobody needs to know their mother's "workout" regimen. Yikes.
Thankfully, Georgia later clarified the whole thing was a joke--after gazillions of people had already commented to offer guidance on how to disable the notifications, of course.
In a follow-up tweet, she wrote:
"TO BE CLEAR: this is just a little joke. My brother put his watch on later in the day and got all his notifications at once. I cannot stress enough how this is just a little joke. Please stop messaging me. I NEED PEACE."
But of course that didn't stop Twitter from posting a ton of hilarious responses.
Careful out there with those Apple Watches, kids!
