Wearable devices are small electronic products, primarily consisting of one or more sensors and having computational capability. They are inserted into devices that attach to the body, such as an individual’s head, feet, arms, wrists and waist. They can resemble a watch, eyeglasses, clothing, contact lenses, shoes, etc. Wearable devices either capture data or present data and the types of data collected could be as simple as the number of steps taken in a day or as complex as ECG. Currently, the wearable technology has become a major part of Internet of Things (IoT) over the past couple of years; and it is anticipated to have a major influence on various fields such as fitness, medicine, disabilities, education, transportation, gaming and entertainment. These wearable medical devices monitor individual’s health data by means of remote or wireless communication and transmit the data to medical professionals or the user. These devices are autonomous and non-invasive, which help to assess the various health parameters such as body temperature, glucose level, respiratory rate, heart rate, blood pressure, etc.
