Wearing watches/Fitbit

I noticed some NCAA officials are wearing what appear to be watches/Fitbits. Can anyone confirm what they are wearing? Just curious.

Thanks!

Didn't NBA players and staff, during last season's "bubble" playoffs, wear some type of device on their wrist for contact tracing or "proximity alarm" purposes?

Some sites have contact tracing and using these devices as a way to do it electronically. Not everyone is using these methods so you see it at some locations and not at others.

Peace

You're welcome. Not sure if I'm correct. Just a guess.

Some leagues initially used a wristband, but most have switched to an electronic device you out in your pocket. Less visible that way.
