Abstract

The paper discusses the potential of wearable devices and mainly focuses on smartwatches for super-aging societies. A smartwatch is designed to be worn on the wrist similar to a traditional watch. Additionally, smartwatches involve touch screens, software applications, and IMU (inertial measurement unit) sensors. Smartphones are mainly utilized for notifications related to phone calls, mails, SNS, or healthcare applications to measure and record heart rate and other vital signals. Conversely, smartwatches exhibit significant potential to generate new value in our daily life. In the paper, we introduce three applications with smartwatches published in extant studies and discuss the applicability of smartwatch applications to super-aging societies.
