MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

You may have one on your wrist right now. Step counters like Fitbits are everywhere, designed to help you keep track of your heart rate and how many calories you burn. But some of that personal information could be used against you.

“I bought my wife one for Christmas last year, and if I knew that, I might not have done that,” said Ricky Powell, who is skeptical of the technology.

One little wristband can reveal a lot. It can also track exactly where you've been.

WMC Action News 5's Kontji Anthony investigates how this information is being used to quickly and efficiently solve crimes, Tuesday at 10 p.m.
