/ / / Certification of smart watches and fitness trackers in Ukraine

Fitness trackers and smart watches are a type of electronic wearable device that tracks indicators related to human activity and health (body temperature, pulse rate, blood oxygen level, calorie consumption, distance traveled, sleep quality, etc.) that improve the quality of life, motivation and human health.

Fitness trackers began to appear in late 2011 and early 2012, when companies such as Fitbit, Nike and Jawbone launched the first generation of products to the market. These devices are relatively easy to use and are often popularized by healthcare professionals who note that people who wear fitness trackers are more likely to be active than those who do not.

According to statistics provided by S&P Global, sales of fitness trackers in the world from 2015 to 2018 ranged from a minimum of 41.7 to 51.5 million units and showed a significant increase in demand to 68.2 million units in 2019, which 32% more than in 2018. Regarding the smartwatch market, Statista experts suggest that by 2022 the number of units shipped will grow to 120.2 million (at the end of 2018 - 79.1 million units).

When communicating with a smartphone via wireless interfaces (mainly Bluetooth), fitness trackers and smart watches transmit the collected data for further processing through specialized applications. It should be noted that in the case of the radio interfaces components in equipment the Ukrainian law requires from the manufacturer (or authorized by the manufacturer person – a resident of Ukraine) or supplier of the equipment to perform the assessment of radio equipment conformity according to one of the procedures specified by the Technical Regulations for Radio Equipment (Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine No. 355 dated May 24, 2017).
