Modern life's ubiquitous component of stress has a significant impact on many facets of human existence. This article presents the development of a wearable device integrated with internet of things (IoT) technology, aiming to identify and quantify stress levels in real-time. This technology provides a possible means of improving stress assessment, enabling prompt treatments and individualized stress management techniques. ESP32-PICO computation platform was used as part of wearable stress monitor. The developed wearable monitor also includes a high-sensitivity pulse oximeter and heart-rate sensor (MAX30102) and galvanic skin response (GSR) sensors to acquire physiological signals associated with stress status. The wearable monitor device delivers data to the firebase platform via Wi-Fi. The benefits and prospective uses of the IoT-enabled wearable device are also covered in the article. It demonstrates the mobile wearable monitor adaptability in a variety of scenarios, such as offices, classrooms, and healthcare facilities, where stress management is vita and required for activity optimization. Continuous monitoring capabilities allow users to learn about their stress levels and take proactive self-care measures. During the validation experiments, the accuracy of measurement capabilities of the developed wearable monitor were evaluated reduced errors of heart rate and respiratory rate being observed.
