Re: Medically significant wearables...
I can't help but feel that patients will inevitably come to accept these potential privacy issues sooner or later, as they get used to the idea and the technology becomes more commonplace (for better or worse).

Re: Medically significant wearables...
Not to be negative, but I think patients would just have to get used to it. I can't forsee a way in which the privacy issues could be navigated around. I definitely wouldn't mind being proven wrong though.

Medically significant wearables...
Wearable tech that actually had useful medical applications (instead of mere "fitness tracking") would be a huge step.. but it would also come with huge privacy issues. Someone will either solve that problem, or patients will just get used to not having private biometric data....?
