Exhibitor numbers for next monthÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Wearable Technology Show have hit the one hundred mark, a sixty per cent increase year on year, and the show is still more than three weeks away.
The two-day expo, organised by Evolve Media Group, will feature innovators large and small, from technology giants Microsoft, Samsung, Intel, Jawbone and Misfit, to start-ups Ambiotex, MyBrain, Nuvo and Made with Glove, funding supremo IndieGoGo, and students from the University of London.
Attendees will be privy to global and UK prototype and product launches across a wide range of applications, including sports and fitness, healthcare and lifestyle.
Nuvo and Ambiotex, for example, are both showcasing revolutionary 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. AmbiotexÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 TeiimoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 ActivinsightsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ wristband, which lets healthcare professionals diagnose and manage conditions such as obesity and diabetes.
The Wearable Technology Show, which launched last year, is the worldÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s biggest dedicated wearables event and takes place from 10-11 March 2015 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 UKÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s premier event for AR, VR and smart glasses.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“This industry may have started out as Ã¢â‚¬Ëœglasses and watchesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ but the product launches at this yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Wearable Technology Show prove without a doubt that wearable technology is about much more than accessing our emails on the go Ã¢â‚¬â€œ it has valid, and valuable, applications across a wide range of industries and the products in development to aid healthcare are particularly impressive,Ã¢â‚¬Â commented Lisa Doerr, CEO, Wearable Technology Show.
The Wearable Technology also hosts The Wearable Technology Start-Up Competition, a dedicated Hackfest and The Wearables 2015, sponsored by IBM; the winners of which will be announced at the after show networking party on 10 March at the Fox Pub next to ExCeL. Last year Wearables winners included Reebok, Fleksy and Virgin Atlantic.
