The Fitbit on your wrist can not only track your exercise habits, but it can also help tell if you're coming down with the flu - and warn health authorities to get ready to help you recover. A study in the U.S. found that heart rate and sleep data from the wearable fitness trackers, can predict and alert public health officials to real-time outbreaks of the flu more accurately than current surveillance methods. Data from more than 47,000 Fitbit users in five American states revealed that predictions of flu outbreaks in those areas were better - and faster. Traditional surveillance reports can take up to three weeks, meaning response measures, such as deploying vaccines or anti-virals, and advising patients on when to stay home, can take longer. Previous studies using crowd-sourced data, such as Google Flu Trends and Twitter have experienced variable levels of success. Experts say that's because it's impossible to separate people with flu from people who search online about it - due to the media and public attention present during outbreaks. The World Health Organization estimates that as many as 650,000 people die worldwide of respiratory conditions linked to seasonal flu every year.
The running world is awaiting a decision by governing body World Athletics over what to do about Nike's Vaporfly shoe, a sneaker that has played a starring role in two of the biggest distance-running achievements last year. A sub two-hour marathon by Eliud Kipchoge and a record-breaking run by Brigid Kosgei. Their stunning performances have sparked heated debate over whether their shoes gave them an unfair advantage. And now, a group at World Athletics is examining what to do about the high-tech sneakers. Among the options facing the organization is to impose a wholesale ban on the shoes or take more limited measures to deal with their carbon plate and foam sole technology. Independent studies have concluded that the shoes improve metabolic efficiency by 4%, though that does not necessarily mean a runner will be 4% faster. All Nike says on its website that the shoe, which will run you $250, has a "built-in secret weapon." But despite all the controversy, analysts tell Reuters the publicity could actually boost sales, especially among amateur runners looking for more spring in their step, since they wouldn't be affected by any ban.
