Sitting on the toilet, I was intrigued by this little strange icon on my Apple Watch app grid. I had never opened this app. After thinking for a minute, I still had no clue what it was.
Curiosity got the better of me. Voilà! It turned out to be Cycle Tracking: an Apple-designed app that claims to track my menstrual cycle.
I believe I have “told” my Apple Watch that I am actually a cisgender male by setting up an exhaustive health profile, which includes my gender and even sexual activity.
Dear Apple: as the next step to making your smartwatch smarter, try removing Cycle Tracking from every male user’s device.
