Apple has filed patent applications describing wireless earbuds that monitor health while a wearer talks on the phone or listens to music. This has obvious exercise-related implications, but could potentially track the physiological impact of one’s emotional state while making calls, as a mobile mental health tool.
Sensors included in the patent include EKG, ICG, VO2 and GSR.
