Smartwatches promise to usher in a new era of wearable technology that integrates into the day-to-day lives of people around the world. Similar to the rise of the smartphone, smartwatch manufacturers and software developers plan to make the devices an indispensable part of your routine.
The smartwatch isn’t really a watch at all – it’s a tiny computer. Just like a laptop or desktop computer, smartwatches use software to perform functions. As a result, smartwatches represent a new vector for hackers to mount an attack on your personal data.
