It’s About Time: The State of the Smartwatches

Smartwatches: Love them or hate them, they’re here to stay. With more companies than ever before creating wearable technology that’s not only only highly advanced, but fashion-forward, no one can deny that the industry has come a long way. But where’s it heading? What does the future of smartwatches, and wearables in general, look like?

Our panel of experts from Android Wear, Nike, ustwo and WIRED will dive deep on design and functionality, success stories and failures, use cases and untapped opportunities, all from both a hardware and software perspective. We’ll take an in-depth look at where smartwatch technology is today, and a subjective look at where we should be next.
