In a world in which students are exposed to all kinds of digital stimuli, the traditional educational, in which a teacher gives a lesson in front of a class full of students who listen attentively, may not be very motivating. That is why, in addition to offering new pedagogical possibilities, and helping teachers to nurture their students with new skills and competences, technology plays a key role in the classroom when it comes to generating motivation. In that sense, wearable devices can be a powerful ally. For this reason, in this article, we will show a classification of these devices and the analysis of the main parameters of each of them. Several bibliographical sources were used for this work, such as: research documents, technical articles and official websites of the wearable devices investigated. Seven parameters were obtained to analyze by rating scales to optimize the decision of its possible use.
