The buzz: We’re all connected.

Little artificial companions like smart watches, smart tattoos, and smart pills are getting big hype about their promise to help physicians, scientists and patients make smarter health-related decisions.

How? By constantly measuring, collecting and reporting body traits, these smart devices can keep us all informed and poised to act faster if health needs change.

But can the devices deliver on their promises? Do patients want to be observed 24/7? Can this technology improve patient-doctor experiences? Is more data always better data?

The experts speak.
