asteroza + health + physical   2
Kinda creepy privacy invasion here, since kids aren't really given an opportunity to not consent to medical and activity monitoring. Ostensibly used to combat childhood obesity by monitoring overall physical activity and length of moderate as well as vigorous physical activity (with goal monitoring and visual feedback on exercise goals), and I think a step counter. But like all privacy invasions, it is the slippery slope of indoctrination to monitoring that is the problem here, as well as the classic "Think of the Children" excuse.
