As well as tracking movement, FitBits can also monitor our pulse and heartrate, showing us dips and spikes throughout the day. 

And when Israeli FitBit owner Koby Sato got dumped last week, he noticed some pretty interesting stats for his heart rate at the end of the day.

Koby's heart rate normally rests at around 72 beats per minute (bpm), but when he got an unexpected call from his boyfriend to end their relationship, that heart rate jumped right up to 88 bpm.

His heart rate remained high for the rest of the day, once even spiking to 118 bpm – we're guessing that was the standard "OH GOD I'M GOING TO BE ALONE FOREVER" moment we've all experienced at one point or another.

Speaking about the results, Koby said he thought it was a cool way to prove that heart break really does affect how we feel.

"Everyone understands heartbreak, right? Everyone’s felt it. When you have this, it’s interesting – you have something to show."

We'd like to see Koby's ex-boyfriend's heart rate when he realises his break-up's just gone viral…

For anyone who isn't aware of what a Fitbit is, it's a heart-monitoring device you wear around you wrist while you exercise so you can track if you are losing weight and burning calories. 

But it turns out, it can be used for more than just hitting the gym. One woman decided to wear it while having sex with her partner so track her heart rate. 

This brave soul shared the information about her 8 minute session on Imgur and it has since gone viral with many people saying they are going to try the same thing. 

The gadget recorded the peaks and drops of different positions and climax during sex. An average of 109 beats per minute were recorded and that figure is within the range for burning fat. 

The woman who posted the graph described herself as a 'fit lady' and said she has a resting heart rate of 60bpm and that her heartrate is slower when she is at the gym than shown in this graph.

The graph has been viewed over 1.7 million times and people have began seriously analysing it in the comments section below. 

“Everyone focuses on the time,” noveltysin wrote on Reddit. “I lose track of it. Time stops. I'm happy.”
