Netflix Fitbit Hack Pauses Movies When Viewers Fall Asleep [Video]
The Sleep Tracking feature uses the health-tracking wristband to detect when people begin to doze off and pauses playback.
The Sleep Tracking feature uses wearable tech wristband Fitbit to detect when a viewer begins to doze off in the middle of watching a movie on Netflix and pauses the film at that point.
When the feature detects that the viewer has fallen asleep, it displays a message that says, “Looks like you fell asleep.” The feature bookmarks that point and the viewer can resume watching the movie when he or she has woken up.
The hack proposes a new and fun way to utilize fitness-tracking data, but may not necessarily be released to the public.
