Wearable's comprise of sensors and have computational ability. Gadgets such as wristwatches, pens, and glasses with installed cameras are now available at cheap prices for user to purchase to monitor or securing themselves. Nigerian faced with several kidnapping in schools, homes and abduction for ransomed collection and other unlawful acts necessitate these reviews.
