We are proud to be part of Longmont Startup Week 2017.
As technology becomes smaller, smarter and integrated into everything, wearing it has become part of the social standard. It is no surprise then that wearable technology is being adopted widely by many industries and their consumers. According to Statista there will be upward of half a billion connected wearable devices worldwide by 2018 and rising to just shy of a billion wearable devices by 2021.
In this New Tech Colorado session we will peek into the world of health and fitness wearable technology. We will explore how innovations in the space of wearable technology are making it easier for individuals to understand their body and their health, and perhaps get a glimpse of what the future holds. Please come and join the conversation and interact with the panel as we take you on a journey beyond the smartwatch. Our conversations will include discussions on topics such as: - Connected Health: Constant health monitoring and the impact to patient care and individual health. - Data: whose data, my data, your data, what about data privacy? What are the benefits of shared health and fitness data. - Policy & Regulation: How are wearable innovations viewed by the regulators and policy makers. - Utility: What’s in store for the future and the utility of health and fitness wearables.
