Nowadays people are willing to self-monitor their health status, and when they do not feel well, they tend to ask Dr. Google for a diagnosis (over a third of adults go online to analyze or look for information about a health condition ). People trust technology, often more than physicians; smartphone and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies are undoubtedly making innovative monitoring and diagnostic devices rapidly progress, so much that it seems that the future of medicine is in smartphones, where apps may run and to which devices can be connected, hence supporting mobile health (m-Health) . In addition to smartwatches and wrist-worn devices that are surely the most common wearable devices , , there are also connected wearable clothes , socks , rings, or glasses-type wearables .
