This is coolbert:

Thanks to the Sheldon Adelson Internet web site Israel Hayom an update presumably in the aftermath of that recent incident where Israeli troops were ambushed by Hezbollah.

Measures taken during missions or operations and during classified briefings and meetings.

"Israeli military to ban use of 'smart apparel' to prevent leaks"

"IDF will soon prohibit the use of smartwatches, rings, glasses, fitness tracking wristbands and shoes in classified settings . . . IDF: Microphones, cameras, GPS systems and more can be activated by the enemy without the owner knowing."

"the Israel Defense Forces will not allow 'computerized apparel' such as smartwatches and fitness tracking wristbands to be worn in classified meetings"

That criteria as to WHAT constitutes "computerized apparel" being:

"The new orders cover devices under three criteria: First [1], a device with the ability to compute, because only these can be targeted; second [2], a device connected to an Internet 'cloud,' possibly via Bluetooth; and finally [3], a device with an audio, video, camera or GPS component, among others"

Smart ain't always so smart!
