Wearable biosensors (“wearables”) enable continuous, noninvasive physiologic and behavioral monitoring at home for those with pediatric or congenital heart disease. Despite significant technologic advances in recent years, there are many issues that need to be solved before wearables will see their true potential realized, including how sensors should be designed for children, how the data should be interpreted, and implementation into the clinical workflow. Many challenges related to the use of wearables are common to every clinical setting, but specific topics for consideration in congenital heart disease are highlighted.
