Body worn spy cameras and cameras in general give off a certain amount of heat. Some people are more sensitive to heat than others so it's advisable to test the camera before you use it in a real-life situation. If needed, attach a piece of felt or cloth to the back of the camera to create a buffer between yourself and the camera.
