Are These Apps Wasting Time?
I never thought that we would like to have an overview of what's going on inside our mouth while brushing and want to keep track of that in an app. Recently I came across Bluetooth toothbrushes that can do just that.
These brushes keep track of how you are brushing your teeth, how long you are brushing, where you are putting more pressure, where you are putting less pressure, and many other bizarre things - and then connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth. You can have a detailed report of your brushing activity and your phone can also remind you to brush your teeth should you forget.
You can say this is a marvel of modern technology, but I would gladly decline tracking every move we make and have a report to analyze it. How far we can go with things like this? An app to track how we wear our clothes? An app to track how we walk? How our eyes look and if they are seeing properly?
The world is full of distractions and you need to be very selective in what you do and do not use. As our time is limited on earth, you want to appreciate, enjoy and cherish every second of it before it's too late. I already visit my dentist every 4 months and am not willing to give up more time tracking how I brush my teeth.
