My end of the deal was to caretake and do all the things that are usually shared by two.
But as we all know, when you’re very busy, and distracted, mistakes happen.
I washed (and dried!) my Fitbit. argh.
A Fitbit is a delightful piece of wearable tech that keeps track of your steps for each day. It’s wonderful, motivating, and I use it every day.
But because I was distracted, I did not remove it from a pocket before I threw some laundry into the machine. So my Fitbit was washed. Then rinsed and spun.
And then, adding insult to injury, it went in the dryer. 😯
This morning I looked for my Fitbit and with a sudden shock I realized …… uh oh. Did I? (you know that feeling. A moment of weak-in-the-knees)
I went to the dryer and there it was. Nestled among the fluffy socks and warm towels was my Fitbit. I reached into the dryer, and pulled it out.
I expected to find a soggy mess, water inside the screen, and maybe a frozen display.
It looks fine. Every screen is clear and sharp. It’s working perfectly.
wow. Washable tech. Who knew?
Have you ever had a similar accident? Or (gasp) washed your phone?
