CES 2019 was a whirling dervish of wearable technology. From automobiles to healthcare wearables are at the forefront of the latest technology showcased at this year’s largest trade show. With this year’s show, we highlighted the increasing presence of wearables in enterprise and healthcare and its continuing presence in the work of fitness and sports. Fashion, E-xtextiles, and new functional form factors were front and center as we talked with everyone from wearable tech component providers to some of the top fashion designers in the field.
On the show floor, we explored the ever-increasing global presence featuring wearables from the US to Japan. Fifteen different countries were represented in the Wearable Tech marketplace highlighting the growth in the wearable tech industry. With Cisco predicting 50 million wearable devices connecting to the Internet of Things in 2020, this promises to be an exciting time for wearable device makers. We can’t wait for CES 2020!
