In the future, we will be able to use a wearable device to track your activity and heart rate, giving you a way to track and improve your health, a research team has said.
It has been around for years but it has been an unproven technology that has had a small but positive impact on healthcare.
This year, a team led by scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has been working on the first wristwatch, the Pebble Watch, to track heart rate using a wrist-worn technology.
This is the first time that a wearable is able to track cardiac rhythms.
The heart rate is an important measure for patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases, including high blood pressure, stroke, and coronary heart disease.
A watch with a heart rate sensor can help track the level of blood flow to the heart and monitor the progress of a heart attack.
The researchers said that by using the wearable device, the device can monitor the heart rate of a patient for about 15 minutes, a long time.
In the future it will be possible to measure the heart rates of patients using their own wearable devices, like a heart monitor, or even a medical device, like an electrocardiogram (ECG) machine.
The research team said that the heart monitor would allow for patients to monitor the health status of their patients using the wrist-mounted technology.
The device could also be used for monitoring patients who have a heart defect.

The team said the technology could be used to track patients who are not using a regular monitor, but need to monitor their health by adding sensors to their existing monitor.
For instance, patients who need to be monitored daily might use an electroencephalogram (EEG) to monitor whether they have a headache or heart attack, and monitor their pulse.
The pulse can be used as a signal to the wristwatch to help monitor the patient.
The technology could also allow for the monitoring of patients who do not have an existing monitor and therefore have to monitor themselves by wearing a smartwatch.
It will also be possible for patients with a medical condition like high blood sugar or diabetes to use the wearable wrist-borne technology.
In addition to heart rate monitoring, the researchers said they will be developing a wearable sensor that could monitor glucose levels.
The wrist-held technology could enable patients to be continuously monitored for health conditions, such as diabetes, by wearing an ECG.
A person wearing a wearable ECG would be able track glucose levels at the wrist and would receive a text message to indicate when the glucose levels were high.

This could potentially enable healthcare providers to monitor patients with diabetes, to make sure that a person is taking the prescribed medications, or to make certain that the person is exercising and eating a healthy diet.
The wearable device could be integrated into existing devices that are not currently connected to the internet, and could be paired with a smartphone to track health and activity data.
The system could be adapted to fit into existing health-care centres and could work at various different health settings.
The findings were published in the journal Science Advances.
