A UWB antenna based on button structures will be presented in this paper. The antennas use the wearable metallic button features and its bandwidth characteristics to create body-centric UWB monopole antennas. The antenna resulted is a rigid wearable antenna structure which is able to operate within the 3.1 GHz to 10.6 GHz bandwidth required for UWB communication systems. Good omni-directional pattern were obtained for the antenna which is desirable for transmission with other wearable devices located across the body.
