Woman discovered ex was cheating thanks to her FitBit

A woman has revealed the moment she discovered her now – very much – ex-boyfriend was cheating on her thanks to her FitBit smartwatch.

Nadia Essex, who is actually a relationship expert that stars on the UK's Celebs Go Dating, shared the shocking story on her TikTok in response to a trending question on 'the moment you knew your relationship was over'.

“Oh honey, I’ve got a doozy,” Nadia said, revealing her ex-boyfriend had come home after a night out.

"I thought, let me make him some breakfast," she continued.

“I got a notification on my FitBit ... the FitBit that we had synched together ... that between 2 o’clock and 3 o’clock in the morning, yesterday morning, he had burned over 500 calories."

As she was not the one responsible for helping her partner burn the calories in question, Nadia said she instead "shoved that breakfast where the sun doesn’t shine darling.”

The clip quickly went viral and has been viewed over 423K times.

There were who tried to defend the man suggesting he may have simply been dancing in a club, however Nadia was quick to clarify she had her confirmation.

"He wishes that was what it was," she responded in the comments.


Others were surprised at the popular smart watch's capability.

"OMG who know a FitBit was so helpful in different ways," one person wrote.

While another said: "Imagine!"

It's not the first time a FitBit has caught out a cheating partner either.

Fox News reporter Jane Slater revealed in 2019 she had also discovered she was being cheated on after her partner's “physical activity” levels mysteriously spiked on his Fitbit device.

“An ex-boyfriend once got me a Fitbit for Christmas. I loved it. We synched up, motivated each other... Didn’t hate it until he was unaccounted for at 4 a.m. and his physical activity levels were spiking on the app," she shared on Twitter at the time.

"Wish the story wasn’t real.”
