Smart watches are fine. Many electronics are fine. Just use the 6" rule and your fine! 

Apple Watch

Hello,

I use a stainless steel Apple Watch Series 6 with a Milanese loop (with a magnetic clasp) and I haven't noticed any issues with it interfering with my PM. If anything, it gives me safety and reassurance knowing that I can run an ECG or check my Blood Oxygen whenever, at worst case scenario, it can call 911 for me if I fall down or it senses a drastic change in heart movement. 
 

As others would suggest, don't hold it up to your PM all day and keep it 6 inches away and you should be fine. 
 

Best of luck 

Jer
