Hi Jenny,
I believe this came up a year or so ago. You might check the list archives but at UNM, wearable tech is not permitted in the exam room as it's considered an electronic device and all electronic devices are prohibited in exam rooms.

            FYI, SMU's policy concerning items prohibited during exams is below-paragraphs 4 and 5. Best wishes.

We currently restrict students from having cell phones and wearing headphones during an exam.  A student recently raised the issue of wearable tech, like smart watches, and Bluetooth earbuds, which look like earplugs at first glance.  Do any of you have exam policies for advanced technology like this? If yes, would you be willing to share them?
