Excited by Android Wear? Wish Google Glass was still with us? Then you may want to check out The Wearable Technology Show from 10-11 March in London.
The two-day expo, organised by Evolve Media Group, will feature over 100 companies both big and small that are innovating how we use tech. This will include Samsung, Microsoft, Intel, fitness band experts Jawbone and Misfit, as well as to start-ups Ambiotex, MyBrain, Nuvo and Made with Glove, funding supremo IndieGoGo, and students from the University of London.
You will be able to see get in on the ground floor of the next big thing in wearables, with a mixture of prototypes and products launches at the event, covering all sorts of fields, including sports and fitness, healthcare, lifestyle and even apps.
“This industry may have started out as ‘glasses and watches’ but the product launches at this year’s Wearable Technology Show prove without a doubt that wearable technology is about much more than accessing our emails on the go – it has valid, and valuable, applications across a wide range of industries and the products in development to aid healthcare are particularly impressive,” commented Lisa Doerr, CEO, Wearable Technology Show.
Nuvo and Ambiotex, for example, are both showcasing innovative devices. Nuvo is developing wearable technology that passively and non-invasively monitors foetal and maternal vital signs to alert against symptoms that may indicate medical complications. Ambiotex’s prototype is a smart garment that measures biometrical data with medical precision, allowing for extensive analysis to aid training performance optimisation and health.
Visitors will also see the global launch of Teiimo’s illation jacket, a heated leather jacket with integrated Bluetooth system and cell phone charger, and many UK launches including the next generation of wearable watches and trackers such as Activinsights’ wristband, which lets healthcare professionals diagnose and manage conditions such as obesity and diabetes.
The Wearable Technology Show, which launched last year, is the world’s biggest dedicated wearables event and takes place at ExCeL in London. Complementing the exhibition is a nine-track conference programme featuring more than 200 expert speakers from companies including Google, LG and McLaren. The event will also be co-located with the Augmented Reality Show for the first time, giving visitors access to the UK’s premier event for AR, VR and smart glasses.
