Basically monitored wrist straps tell you if you're properly grounded so as not to zap an electronic component when you touch it.

Non-monitored straps should be tested once a day to verify that they are properly grounding you which means you run the risk oflosing ground at some point and zapping a chip ruining that device you're putting together or repairing.
