More and better sensors, smart bluetooth connectivity, smart data collection, smaller form factors and a social media community has helped create the building blocks for a set of tools to help everyone.
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) January 08, 2014
Wearable fitness is on a roll in Las Vegas. Living in Digital Times will host an exclusive fitness press conference and breakfast at the 2014 International CES®, providing a high-level overview of the explosive fitness scene that will help any journalist or media person get up to speed quickly.
“Fitness technology pioneered the entire wearable and monitoring category,” said Julie Sylvester, producer of the FitnessTech Summit. “A recent CEA study found that consumer interest in purchasing dedicated wearable fitness devices in the next 12 months quadrupled to 13 percent in 2013, from just three percent in 2012, making this one of the fastest growing areas in technology today.”
“More and better sensors, smart bluetooth connectivity, smart data collection, smaller form factors and a social media community has helped create the building blocks for a set of tools to help everyone from rank amateurs to professional athletes,” said Robin Raskin, founder of Living in Digital Times, the Summit’s parent company.
Here is a taste of what attendees will see:
- Activity trackers from companies including JayBird, adidas and Fitbit
- Diet and fat trackers from companies like Medamonitor
- Sports injury trauma detection from Reebok
- Die-hard fitness solutions from Spree Sports and Runtastic
- Fitness health solutions from Humana
- Kids’ fitness products from GeoPalz and PlayWorld Systems
The desire for wearable monitors and devices in all shapes and sizes is almost insatiable. And the continued evolution of these products promises a next generation that’s even more superb. The human body has become the centerpiece for a host of fascinating new devices, and the data gleaned helps individuals as well as aggregate populations be informed in this age of the quantified self.
Raskin added, “Give us an hour and you’ll get the best story of the show (and breakfast too).”
After the press conference and throughout CES, be sure to check out the latest sports, fitness and outdoor tech innovations at the FitnessTech TechZone in the Las Vegas Convention and World Trade Center (LVCC), South Hall 2.
