From The Way To a Man’s Heart is Actually Through WiFi, by Violet Blue:
“It feels very ominous and Big Brother-y, that authorities can just grab data from devices inside your body without your consent.
Of course, it’s not just implanted medical devices that monitor people’s heart rates, transmit device logs and bodily information — and snitch out anyone with something to hide. Fitness trackers like Fitbit, Garmin, and Jawbone are increasingly being used as admissible evidence in court cases. The difference here is, that you can’t just leave a pacemaker on the bedside table when you want.
