There are many wearable devices that one can easily carry around in the course of jogging or swimming.

It is water proof up to 50 meters in the water and monitors and records your strokes and how fast and efficient you actually are in water.

I do not trust smart devices. Are they not dangerous?

All devices and machines have both their pros and cons. It is always wise to check these out before deciding to purchase or use them. Also, a device can be dangerous or convenient depending on how they are used. Smart devices are designed to make work easier with little effort. They are manufactured to the best and highest standards. It is easy for instance to use a smart phone to control other devices in the house and even people entering your house and cooking the food they are to have through the smart padlocks and smart Anova oven for instance. However a few precautions can be of great benefit to the user. It is advisable to buy the smart devices from recognized distributors to avoid buying fake products. Also, read the assembly manual carefully before trying to assemble the product if you are to do it by yourself. Alternatively, the dealers can assemble for you just to be sure. Again, if it is a toy or requires you to navigate it as it moves for example Drones and helicopters, it makes sense to practice using them before actually taking them out to fly them as they can be truly dangerous.
