Fitness trackers cause weight gain?

"But some wearers are experiencing fitness band frustration. They find that their Fitbit actually moves the scale in the wrong direction — making them pack on the pounds, as opposed to maintaining or shedding unwanted weight."

"Fitness social networks and calorie-counting websites have threads asking fellow users if they’re also “gaining weight on Fitbit” and what lifestyle changes or electronic tweaks they can make so their wristbands work for them. One mother posted her excitement when she got a Fitbit for Mother’s Day, only to find she immediately gained three pounds when she started using her new fitness tracker. Confused, she writes, “I’m more active now than ever before.”"

The article chalks it up to the idea that the trackers suggest more calories than what people really ought to eat, but the truth it's probably linked to EMFs.

What specifically has Peat said about this?  Clearly they have some kind of negative metabolic effect.

I am dumber for having glanced at that article.

Raintree, you have to up your posting game. You're shitting this place up with trolling and dumb stuff like this.
I am not.  Peat wrote about EMFs 40 years ago.  Wearables are going to destroy this country's health.  

You're the troll, not me.
