Soto was wearing his Fitbit when he got a call from his then-boyfriend of a few months, a fellow law student. Soto told BuzzFeed News, “He said that we’re going to have to cancel, and I said ‘Why?’ and he said, ‘Things are not working as they should… I said, ‘Are you serious? You’re doing this over the phone?’”
The breakup brought his heart rate up to the point that his Fitbit actually thought he was working out. His heart rate remained elevated for the rest of the afternoon, in the wake of the breakup.
