Building for the Wearable Future
December 11, 2013
Join us at the inaugural Wearable Wednesday SF on December 11 and meet the most innovative wearable tech entrepreneurs, demo wearable products, share ideas and discuss trends in both our local and global markets.
ABI Research estimates the global market for wearables in health and fitness alone could reach 170 million devices by 2017. Big-time technology players have taken the hint and are making a big leap into the world of wearable tech. Wearable technology has moved beyond product concepts to actual consumer products. However, building hardware for the wearables market is only the first challenge. Companies are challenged to create differentiated experiences, products that work, and useful technologies people will incorporate into their daily lives. In this session, we will discuss the marriage between hardware and software, how companies will take on the challenge to improve consumers lives and in the end, build something that people will buy.
