China warns soldiers against wearable gadgets

“China has warned soldiers against using smartwatches, high-tech spectacles and other Internet-connected wearable gadgets, saying they could ‘endanger security’ after a recruit was caught trying to take a photograph of troops.

‘The use of watches that have internet access, location information, and telephone conversation functions should be considered a violation of secrecy regulations at army barracks,’ the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Daily said.”
