Summary: Human sweat provides a rich repository of biomarkers and chemical analytes that is accessible continuously, on-the-go, and non-invasively. Here we provide a review of the latest wearable sweat sensors with discussions on material science, device development, sensing mechanisms, power generation, and data management. We highlights the trends in commercialization of sweat sensors and multifunctional sensing platforms with flexible electronics.
