Wearables, Data and Litigation

Wearables, the more frequently seen watch-like devices that now nearly 1 in 6 adults are wearing and fast becoming a hit across the United States.

The wearable industry hit $2 billion in 2015, is expected to hit $3 billion in 2017 and $4 billion in 2018.

Wearables archive, store and analyze billions of pieces of data and depending on the type of wearable, such data can include altitude, speed, location and even text messages and emails.

Imagine the treasure trove of information such wearables can provide in litigation?

Vehicle crash?  No sign of texting or on the phone, but what about the notification that came through the wearable?  How about the speed of the vehicle?  Check the altitude of the wearable against the testimony of the driver and see if he/she is telling the truth?  The scenarios are many.

And these wearables continue to expand in the data collection.  Many already capture heart rate.  Blood pressure and sugar levels are no doubt to follow.

These small devices will often be overlooked by lawyers, but those who follow the technology wave, will also follow the treasure trove of data.
