Golden Networking brings Wearable Computing Conference 2013 New York City
(www.wearable-computing-conference.com), "Revolutionizing the Human
Experience Through Next-Generation Technology", November 7.
New York City, NY, USA (October 28,
2013) -- InformationWeek's Kristin Burnham
has seen the future. Accessories that buzz
when the email you've been waiting for
lands in your inbox. Devices that help you
sleep more soundly. Gadgets that
photograph and document your day, start to
finish. Meet the latest innovations in the
rapidly growing -- and lucrative -- industry of
wearable tech, at Golden Networking's
Wearable Computing Conference 2013
(http://www.wearable-computing-conference.com), "Revolutionizing the Human
Experience Through Next-Generation Technology", to be held in New York City, on
Research company Visiongain predicts that the global wearable tech market will reach
$4.6 billion this year. "With virtually limitless applications to a number of verticals, the
wearable technology market represents a huge value proposition to all ecosystem
members, from manufacturers to app developers and service report providers," the
company's recent research report stated.
Among the verticals pouncing on the trend, the healthcare industry has rolled out a
number of promising remote patient monitoring technologies, such as a bracelet that
monitors a patient's vitals, a device that determines the severity of a person's sleep apnea
and a wireless sensor that monitors fetal and maternal heart rates.
The fitness industry has also embraced the wearable tech trend, introducing the popular
Fitbit and Nike's FuelBand, both of which analyze your daily activity and track your weight.
Jawbone, a wristband gadget, tracks how you sleep, exercise and eat.
But Google Glass and the emerging crop of smartwatches have generated the most buzz
for wearable tech. The general public still can't buy Google Glass, augmented reality
glasses that the company began testing in April 2012. But developers have rolled out a
number of apps, including Path and Evernote integration.
The Smartwatch buzz began in February when rumors swirled that Apple had an iWatch
in the works. Though Apple has yet to deliver, the company is reportedly "aggressively"
hiring engineers. Critics have questioned whether a viable market for smartwatches
exists, but that hasn't stopped manufacturers like Samsung from jumping in with early
products to be discussed at Wearable Computing Conference 2013:
- Key Features of Wearable Technologies
- A New World for Application Developers
- How Wearable Technologies Will Transform the Human Experience
- Wearable Computing and its Impact on the Technology Marketplace
- The Future of Wearable Computing Today
