We are less than a month away from the annual Wearable Technology Show. Now in its fourth year, the Show returns to London, ExCel on the 7th and 8th of March. This is the largest business and consumer event featuring cutting edge technology under one roof. Over 6,000 attendees, 250 speakers, 100 exhibitors and a few hundred press will come together to exchange views, network and do business.
WTS 2017 showcases technologies across a multitude of fields including smart home, healthcare, fashion, fitness, performance sports, enterprise and augmented reality. Co-located with show will be IOT Connect, Augmented Reality Show, Smart Home Show and Digital Healthcare.
The conference will be a unique opportunity to hear about the convergence of sport and technology. Expect to hear insightful talks from former Olympian Greg Whyte, Red Bull big wave surfer Andrew Cotton and British Cycling’s Emma Barton.
“Sport was one of the first sectors where industry and consumers embraced the potential of wearable technology and it’s exciting how we’ve moved on from fitness bands to incorporating ‘brain telemetry’ and even VR,” said John Weir, COO, Wearable Technology Show.
“Our sports conference stream is incredibly strong this year and will explore how the smart technology continues to create opportunities for improvements in performance. Delegates will learn how top professional teams are harnessing wearables and how data is not only measured but used effectively for impressive gains.”
WTS 2017 will cover component technology, applications, business commercialisation and a review of the latest devices on offer. The main stages and workshop tracks will give delegates unprecedented insights into the latest technology on offer. More than 20 companies are expected to announce new gadgets in healthcare, AR/VR, sports, smart clothing and more.
Cognisess will be there showcasing the world’s first racing helmet which allows live streaming of the drivers’ brain waves to the pit crew. Cognisess is piloting this ground-breaking research with the YRDA at Arden to introduce what can be described as ‘brain telemetry’.
Myzone will preview its latest innovation in wearable technology – a fully-fledged subscription service for work-outs and classes that will soon be available on its app platform.
We will also see premiers of wearable devices from Helo, Safepatient, Activ5 and Flickteck. In terms of smart clothing, AIW will showcase its updated BioMan sports performance shirt redesigned with a smaller sensor. We will also get an exclusive preview of Cute Circuit’s groundbreaking graphene dress.
