Today’s conversations surrounding wearables tend to diverge and converge around fitness and health, and it remains to be seen where the concentration will lie. While the act of logging exercise points or sleep hours are crucial elements of the health and wellness phenomena, there are even greater opportunities to apply wearable technology to other areas, including chronic disease prediction and prevention, social crisis, personal identity and security. As we expand the wearable conversations to emerging markets, the use cases multiply even further.

Join UNICEF, frog, Wearable World and other panelists on May 7 as we share and discuss the social impact that is possible in today’s wearable economy. Tickets are available here.
