The Human Data Commons Foundation has released a report on the privacy practices of smartwatch manufacturers, News 1130 reports. The Vancouver-based nonprofit reviewed 18 companies on the privacy rights they offer users, their data collection and sharing practices, and security. The foundation listed Apple smartwatches at the top of their list, while Samsung and Moov were near the bottom. “Smartwatches and fitness trackers are popular holiday gifts. There are many review sites comparing features and what it’s like to use the fitness trackers and smartwatches these companies make,” said Greg McMullen, who co-authored the report. “We think it’s just as important to look at how the companies use your data.”
