Yikes. Smartwatches made by Samsung and LG may not be that good in keeping personal data safe. According to research conducted by the University of New Haven, personal and private information can be extracted from two of smartwatches currently available in the market today -- the Samsung Gear 2 Neo and the LG G Watch.
Among the personal data retrieved from the Samsung Gear 2 Neo smartwatch were email addresses, messages, contacts lists, and health related information. None of these data whatsoever were encrypted. As for the LG G Watch, information like email addresses, contacts list, calendar, and pedometer data were also vulnerable.
