Abstract

The spread of wearable technologies has meant a transformation in several areas affecting health and well-being. From medicine to sports, uses of these new technical solutions are relevant and notorious. In this chapter, we analyze if these technologies can also produce positive effects on the individual person regarding subjective and psychologic well-being, or, in other level, produce effects on societies of which it forms part. If so, these wearables could be considered as positive technologies.
