Everywhere you look you can find tips for a healthier lifestyle.

Sometimes even on your wrist.

Smart watches track our steps, our pulse rate, even our sleep – impressive when you consider how much space technology like this used to take up.

Researchers at the University of Colorado have succeeded in making a wearable device packed between two layers of ‘skin’.

A nice way to go no wear!
