Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to present recent advances regarding the use of smartwatches and smartbands in healthcare settings. To this end, we conducted a careful review of recent studies related to this area of the literature. This research revealed a significant increase in the literature regarding this topic in recent years. A substantial part of the works mainly concerns the monitoring of daily motor activities, in order to allow a healthy lifestyle, but there are also works about hospitalization and more serious diseases. In general, some results confirm that these devices can help to maintain a healthy lifestyle, meanwhile, they can also be used successfully for more serious and debilitating diseases, although in this case there is the need for more rigorous research, especially on larger populations, before they can be definitively integrated into clinical practice.
