Thinking of getting the iwatch 2 but am concerned if any health hazards due to wearing this type of electronic gizmo on your body.   Anyone have opinions or info about these wearable tech items?  Risk of cancer, etc?

Worst risk is staring at the watch while jogging across the street. 

Cancer?  No different than any cell phone or other electronic watch.

Do you ever use a bluetooth headphone?  I'd be more worried about having that right next to my brain if I needed something else to worry me!   :shake:

My wife is a Red Cross instructor and they've had reports of ambulances showing up during the CPR class because a student yelled "call 911" and the iPhone dialed without the user knowing.

I guess that might be a health risk ..... to the person who needed that ambulance and now has to wait!   ???

O.K. so instead of health risks, is there a privacy or getting spied on risk (LOL)?   The last articles I googled on any risks was dated April 2016 so no new info out thee as these watch phones become popular.  Maybe no news is good news.

I bought the iwatch series 2 anyway.  Time will tell.   I'll probably be dead in 40+ years anyway but I'll be over 100 so no worries.

An iWatch won't do any harm to you, it brings conveniency.  :thumbsup:
