The Wider Wearable Tech Ecosystem – a holistic view on a product’s life cycle

A successful wearable device is not only defined by its’ hardware. You need a good user interface for an optimized customer experience. You have to run tests to make sure that the materials do not cause allergies on your clients’ skin. You may need a strong partner to support you with advertising or consulting. You want a good retailer for your product and an experienced ODM to build your product. That is why WT brings together the entire ecosystem of wearable tech. We connect customers from the entire value chain to foster the market. You can find some of our partners from the wider WT ecosystem in our exhibition area at the WT | Wearable Technologies Conference in San Francisco on July 25-26.
