413I1BEoBpL

As wearable technology is becoming increasingly popular amongst consumers and projected to continue to increase in popularity they become probable significant source of digital evidence. One category of wearable technology is smart watches and they provide capabilities to receive instant messaging, SMS, email notifications, answering of calls, internet browsing, fitness tracking etc. which can be a great source of digital artefacts. The aim of this thesis is to analyze Samsung Gear S3 Frontier and Fitbit Versa Smartwatches, after which we present findings alongside the limitations encountered. Our result shows that we can recover significant artefacts from the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier, also more data can be recovered from Samsung Gear S3 Frontier than the accompanying mobile phone. We recovered significant data that can serve as digital evidence, we also provided a mapping that would enable investigators and forensic examiners work faster as they are shown where to look for information in the course of an investigation. We also presented the result of investigating Fitbit Versa significant artefacts like Heart rate, sleep, exercise and personal data like age, weight and height of the user of the device, this shows this device contains artefacts that might prove useful for forensic investigators and examiners. This thesis is written in English and is 42 pages long, including 6 chapters, 7 figures and 4 tables
