Thanks to rapid ad­vances in health-track­ing tech­nol­ogy, the next gen­er­a­tion of wear­able de­vices will count blood cells. De­vel­oped by Rut­gers Univer­sity in the US, the new smart­band is sim­i­lar to a reg­u­lar wear­able, but as well as mon­i­tor­ing your heart rate and ex­er­cise ac­tiv­ity, it will take sam­ples of your blood and trans­mit the data to your smart­phone. The de­vice could help di­ag­nose var­i­ous con­di­tions such as in­ter­nal bleed­ing and cer­tain can­cers.
