Privacy fears as bosses deploy high-tech fitness trackers to spy on employees - and could even use them to decide who to fire

In exchange, bosses are supplied with detailed data on their employees, ranging from their daily steps, hours spent sitting down, heart rate and sleep quality, according to the Washington Post.
