Abstract: Internet of Things (IoT) has drastically changed the functionality of many sectors like health, education, transportation, home, city, etc. Health care underwent a crucial change through IoT, but the major concern is the functionality of the medical devices and their security. Heart disease has become a common problem now days due to smoking and aging. IoT based health care systems are already available but their usage is still a challenge due to their complex structure and deployment of sensors in the patient body. In this paper we propose a novel heart activity monitoring system called SHAM (Smart Heart Activity Monitoring) it monitors the heart activity through a smart watch app. This smart watch monitors the heart activity of the patient if there any irregular activity it notifies the patient and if very critical activity is identified it automatically sends SOS call to the ambulance with GPS coordinates of the patient. The main aim of the proposed system is to make the heartbeat monitoring device simple thereby providing comfort to the patient in its usage and reducing the risk of death.
