If it’s strapped, inserted or attached to your body, uses Bluetooth, the cloud, and the internet there’s a good chance it’s a wearable. Glasses, smart watches, smart jewelry, fitness trackers, wearable cameras, on skin sensors, sleep caps and “chipping.” We’ll show what’s new, what’s working and what’s on the horizon.

Top Three Topics:

  • Everybody’s talking wearables, but who’s buying?
  • Wearables in the workforce
  • Skin, ears, implants: Where will they put wearables next?
