12 interesting wearables you should know

Wearable technology is probably one of those things you probably didn’t need but still wanted because people were always talking about the devices. Fitbit, Apple and Garmin are some of the main providers of health and wellness wearables. Each of them touts being able to track your fitness activity or measures your heart rate. However, consumer wearables are not regulated by the FDA and therefore are not intended to be used as a medical device.

Wearables, though, are now coming into their own in medtech, with a bunch of devices going through the regulatory and approval process at FDA. Academic researchers, meanwhile, continue to push the boundaries of what is possible.

There is more hope than ever when it comes to non-invasive solutions to problems that many people face – everything from seizures to difficulty breathing.
