Apple Watch Causing Medical Anxiety

I've never worried about my health until I got the latest Apple Watch. It's me into a raving lunatic. Now when I pass a fit bird and my heart gives a kick, I must check it with the ECG feature. I check my heart rate during my early morning jogs multiple times. I ponder whether I'm having enough water, taking enough steps, sleeping well enough - I've become a right hypochondriac. Has anyone else noticed this same sort of hyper vigilance while wearing a smart device? I hope the anxiety eventually wears off.

I've had it for about a month, but I didn't become so uptight about it until a couple weeks in. The thing nags is one reason I'm always checking it. I've never worried about my weight, how many steps I took a day, how much water I drank, how I slept, let alone how my heart was holding up until I bought this thing. I love technology. I had no idea I was going to become so ridiculous! And it's not like I can just dump it - not after spending so much.
