Inspired by the success of smartphones and tablets, more compact computer chips, sensors, and touch screens bear the new generation of smartwatches. Smartwatches are meant to offer another means to check information.
A device used for viewing social media updates, check the weather, and connect to your calendar all conveniently placed on your wrist.
The devices have huge potential but they don’t always equally compare to the smartphone. The smartwatch is still vulnerable to hacks and other cyber attacks from untrusted apps.
Smartwatch wearers have concern with embedded apps that are vulnerable to code-based attacks. As with any device connected to installed platforms, defense protection is required. Also, banging around your mini computer on your wrist may cause glitches to the accessory.
Dozens of smartwatches are in development focusing on firmware and software updates.
