The Laws of the game allow only specific gear:

Players (including substitutes/substituted and sent off players) are not permitted to wear or use any form of electronic or communication equipment (except where EPTS* is allowed). The use of any form of electronic communication by team officials is not permitted except where it directly relates to player welfare or safety.

* Electronic performance and tracking systems

And if EPTS are allowed:

Where wearable technology (WT) as part of electronic performance and tracking systems (EPTS) is used in matches played in an official competition organised under the auspices of FIFA, confederations or national football associations, the technology attached to the player’s equipment must bear the following mark:

So (except for health and safety devices) only EPTS devices are allowed in certain competitions and they must have that mark. Anything else is forbidden.
