Despite the rapid development of mobile health based on wearable devices in recent years, lack of access to biochemical detection remains a vital challenge for most commercial wearable devices, which hinders the provision of effective electronic health records (EHRs) for disease control strategies, and further constraining the development of personalized precision medicine. Herein, we propose a strategy to graft biochemical detection function onto commercial bracelet. Different from the conventional development process of designing a completely new wearable biochemical device, we prefer to upgrade existing commercial wearable device to achieve simpler, faster, and more effective research and commercialization processes. An affordable and user-friendly biochemical button module has been designed that enables to integrate sensitive, specific, and rapid biochemical detection function into the idle space on the strap of the bracelet without increasing the size of the main body. This “Smart Bracelet Plus” shows the ability to simultaneously monitor physical and biochemical signals, and will serve as a reliable and systematic personal diagnostics and monitoring platform for providing real-time EHRs for disease control strategies and improving the efficiency of the healthcare system.
