One of the more interesting and fast-emerging parts of the quantified self-movement is fertility tracking and reproductive health. Admittedly, these are two labels that cover a whole variety of different things, but the focus is mainly on either helping you to prevent pregnancy or helping you to conceive. Of course, there are a whole raft of emerging wearable tech devices and apps for women once they get pregnant, but that’s for a different feature.
Over the past few years, fertility tracking apps, like Clue and Glow, have been slowly evolving from souped-up calendars to holistic data centres. Instead of collecting a list of dates and filling our screens with pink butterfly designs, they are now smart, usable and effective; more recently employing the help of separate wearable devices to make data tracking even more accurate.
