Consumer wearables consist of 4 major types, namely, wrist wear, eyewear, neckwear, and body wear. Wrist wear consists of smartwatches and wristbands. Eyewear includes Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) headsets; neckwear comprises fashion, jewellery, smart ties, and collars. Similarly, body wear includes smart innerwear, fashion, apparel, arm wear, and legwear. In addition, consumer wearables include ring scanners, body worn cameras, and special-purpose footwear. All these devices are installed with heterogeneous platforms such as Android Wear OS, Linux, Pebble OS, Tizen, Real-Time Operating System (RTOS), and WatchOS. Consumer wearables are vulnerable and more susceptible to cyber-attacks and IoT security vendors find a great opportunity to address the security needs of these consumer wearables. For instance, fitness trackers provide a geolocation of the user and the data is uploaded minute by minute to the cloud. Hacking of this data can be very dangerous, as a user can be tracked anytime anywhere. As the wearables are usually connected to a variety of cloud apps, depending on an enterprise’s BYOD policy and its network can be a vulnerable point for a cyber-attack. This means that malware and other forms of attacks can use that path to get inside an organization’s network and can hack other IoT devices as well.
