There is a difference in the way community perceive the security and privacy in Smart Wearable Medical Devices. For example, some people think it is ok for Smart Wearable Medical Devices to collect their data’s and sharing with third parties while others might be concerned. Some users are skeptical about the use of these devices for different reasons. This study investigates some importance aspect of the Smart Wearable Medical Device usability, how college students perceive privacy on smart wearable medical devices, the lack of due diligence in the security and privacy of these devices, the necessary privacy controls, how much college students understand and are aware of how their data is collected and used, and the security and privacy concerns in the usage of the device. The results show that more than 50% of the respondents do not perceive the security [AA1] and privacy issues in smart wearable medical device as a potential risk. They do not understand the type of information that is stored on, or transmitted from their device, how this information is used, and where this information is stored. The result indicates that, they are concern about their data, but they do not have full control over who have access to their data with this, their data is vulnerable to attacks. Finally, we identified and suggested some future research directions for using the findings of this study to raise awareness about security and privacy risks in smart wearable medical devices.
