While you can't always trust your gut when it comes to busting a cheating partner, you can always rely on technology for the same. Sounds far-fetched? Well, not really.

A TikToker recently revealed that she found out that her boyfriend was cheating on her after his FitBit activity tracker showed that he had burned 500 calories at 2 a.m.

Relationship expert Nadia Essex, 39, said on TikTok that she was shocked to find her partner's suspicious activity data in the middle of the night. Essex said the two of them had synchronized their devices so that they could track each other's fitness activities and they could immediately get notified by the smartwatch whenever one person burned extra calories.

Essex said she had a fair idea of what her boyfriend was up to since they were not together at that time. "Oh honey, I've got a doozie," said Essex.

"So when my ex-boyfriend came home from a night out, I woke up in the morning and thought, 'Let me make some breakfast'. And I got a notification on my Fitbit, the Fitbit that we'd synced together, that between 2 o'clock and 3 o'clock in the morning, last morning, he had burned over 500 calories," she added.

Essex then smiled and said, "I shoved that breakfast where the sun don't shine [sic], darling," leaving the viewers to read between the lines.

Essex's video has since clocked in more than 446,000 views and 48,000 likes, with some fellow TikTok users referring to her as a "queen."

"That is the best, but defo worst, story. You're so much better without him," a user commented.

Another user said breaking up with the boyfriend was well worth it. "Well at least you found out. Who knows how long it would've carried on for it you hadn't!"

Some users, on the other hand, said he might just be dancing at a club, to which she responded, "He wishes that was what it was."

Many other users said Essex's story inspired them to get a FitBit. "I've been in two minds about getting a Fitbit, guess who's on her way to get one ASAP," one of them said.
