Wearable tech

This board focuses mainly on self-tracking gadgets and sensors - especially those designed for health. While most are wearable, there are some that track from inside the body or that you put against your body. Some of these products are concepts or are not yet commercially available. Welcome to the world of 'Wear, Share, Compare' and Quantified Self.
