Wearable fitness devices constitute one of the latest trends in technology, and likely represent a new frontier.
These devices, commonly referred to as "wearables," are exactly what they sound like – functional electronic wristbands designed to monitor and record an individual’s daily fitness activity. Unlike handheld devices, wearables can monitor and record physical activity and sensitive health information – such as a user’s heartrate, skin temperature, or respiratory rate – in real time. As these devices become more and more popular, it is highly likely that these devices will become a common part of litigation disputes.
