Would anyone be able to help me understand this,please?

I am kind of technology challenged…so will someone please explain to me what these wearable devices/smartwatch/fitness bands and such are? Are they like little computers? Do they just monitor certain things? I’m not sure I totally understand. Thanks.

There are some devices that resemble watches but are not only that, instead they come with operating systems (iOS for Apple and Android for Open Source devices), they have small touch screens (as a smartphone) and can synchronize with your phone/tablet to receive notifications/updates/mails/messages and some are designed in a way they can measure some health parameters as Heart Rate, Temperature, etc… There are other uses as counting steps, measuring distance travelled among others…

Hope this helps. :slight_smile:
