Jawbone releases data showing how the recent Napa earthquake disturbed sleep
The recent earthquake in South Napa took many by surprise during the night, but to see just how many people woke up to the sound and physical disturbance, fitness tracking company Jawbone has released some anonymous data. The chart shared shows UP wearers in the Bay Area who track their sleep patterns.
A serious portion of UP wearers in Napa, Sonoma, Vallejo and Fairfield are located near the epicenter and were woken up, but it's interesting to see just how the impact gradually weakened as data from users who reside slightly further away is included. If you thought your UP was just for monitoring fitness, how about a secondary feature for earthquakes?
While a neat look at collected data, it's worth reminding everyone as to just how much data these companies collect.
