Does Fitbit Fit 4B's Needs?

Class 4B researched existing technology that could be utilized to solve the problem of falling asleep while driving pro-actively. Today, 4B shared the findings. Fitbit and Jawbone (fitness and health bracelets worn around the wrist) are currently the two contenders for 4B’s utilizable technology. Both appear to accurately track sleep, although more research will be dedicated to this, and both most importantly have open source code and allow anybody to write their own apps for their respective products. For 4B’s purposes, creating an app compatible with either technology would be a significant component of the current solution being pursued.
