In recent years, the U.S. Army has been conducting several studies to find out if wearable devices, such as special watches and rings, can evaluate how soldiers respond to stress and physical exertion. According to the experts from Booz Allen Hamilton, a consulting, analysis, and engineering firm, these wearable devices are also helpful for soldiers to cope with stress more effectively, which makes them more productive. Today, around 1,000 soldiers from the 25th Infantry Division in Alaska are wearing Whoop biofeedback devices. Another 530 members of the 10th Mountain Division at Fort Drum, New York, are participating in a yearlong human performance study as well.
