10 Years of WT | Wearable Technologies!

In 2016 we will celebrate in the 10th anniversary of WT | Conferences! It’s hard to believe that 10 years have passed in this relatively young industry. In 2006, wearables looked different than how they look today. Do you remember? We reminisced through our archives and compiled an overview of the major conference topics. Starting with smart clothing in 2006 to – in our prediction – smart patches in 2016. Below is the evolution of wearables defined by WT | Wearable Technologies; from bulky devices to beautiful and sleek smart pieces. Let’s explore this together!
