The popularity of smartwatches has significantly risen in the past decade owing to advancements in technology, cost reduction, materials availability, production optimization and industrial automation. These factors have compounded the growth of manufacture of smartwatches and coupled with the internet-of-things boom in recent years, this field has seen rapid development and large investments of time and resources. Consequently, with a large amount of data being generated by these smartwatches, the question arises – is it feasible to obtain this data from a watch, and then visualize it in an interpretable manner? The answer is a positive “yes”. This article demonstrates the proof-of-concept. It proposes to build a platform that can extract data from a smartwatch and visualize this information on a web application dashboard in order to enable the user to obtain valuable insights.
