Smartphones carry all sorts of health risks. Oblivious to our surroundings, we read texts, scroll through pictures and type messages as we walk around, bumping into objects (and other people), with some actually falling to their death. Chiropractors regularly treat "text neck." Smartphones reportedly carry more germs than a toilet seat. And sometimes they spontaneously catch fire.
Fortunately, they can also have some health benefits. While health and fitness apps aren't generally as sexy as a hot game or entertainment offering, they can make it easier to get in shape or keep tabs on specific health issues. And when you find one that works for you, you tend to use it for longer periods of time than whatever the hot game is at the moment.
