Bluetooth smartwatches and security

Smart Watches - forums.watchuseek.com
I recently had an old friend (ex Army intelligence) visit and we talked about smartwatches he reminded me of the Bluetooth security issues and the fact a lot of people have Bluetooth turned on and not realising he could sit within range of the phone and download everything from the phone without the owners knowledge. In the last few years I have tried smartwatches but I never worried myself as if you got everything from my phone you would gain nothing of interest and as I use an iPhone I know they can be activated and used for varies things even if I turned it off. So is it wise for someone working who may have information on their phone that could be on interest to others to not only have Bluetooth turned on but to advertise this by wearing a smartwatch, I wonder.
