Wearable rings, watches and bracelets rolled out

ABN AMRO is taking the next step in testing new wearables as a payment method with 500 of its clients. After prior successful internal tests in 2017, clients can now experience what it's like to make contactless payments with a ring, watch, bracelet or keyring.

A safe, wearable soft sensor

A safe, wearable soft sensor

Children born prematurely often develop neuromotor and cognitive developmental disabilities. The best way to reduce the impacts of those disabilities is to catch them early through a series of cognitive and motor tests. But accurately measuring and recording the motor functions of small children is tricky.

Wearable patch measures sweat in extreme environments

Wearable patch measures sweat in extreme environments

A research team has unveiled a thin and robust sweat sensor that is capable of monitoring hydration during exercise. The circular patch, with a width of just 30 mm, works underwater and in dry, arid environments - which makes it ideal for monitoring fluid loss during swimming, triathlons, ultramarathons and many other endurance sports.

Wearable to detect hidden anxiety, depression in young children

Wearable to detect hidden anxiety, depression in young children

Anxiety and depression are surprisingly common among young children - as many as one in five kids suffer from one of them, starting as early as the preschool years. But it can be hard to detect these conditions, known as "internalizing disorders," because the symptoms are so inward-facing that parents, teachers and doctors often fail to notice them.
