Analysts predict the wearable devices industry will be worth $19 billion by 2018. The Apple Watch is now out in front with 2 million plus orders, and offerings by FitBit, Samsung, LG, Adidas, Pebble, Misfit, Xiaomi are moving fast. While consumer models are dominant today, there is also enormous potential for and interest in wearable devices and apps in healthcare, enterprise/industrial and military.
The biggest hurdle for mass adoption is how to keep all these devices powered. Lithium Ion batteries have been the solution of choice for portable electronics like smart phones and tablets, but the form factor/design and performance requirements are even more stringent for wearables. Energy storage platforms that are flexible, extremely safe, waterproof, rapidly rechargeable and long-lasting are needed; alongside robust energy harvesting platforms. While some solutions are on the market today, major innovations in electro-chemistries and battery architecture are still required. Also critical is the overall system design and engineering, including reducing the energy demands of individual components like sensors, display, chips and buses, apps/code, as well as the protocols and connects that pull it all together.
Infocast’s Wearables & IoT Summit will bring together visionary product developers, strategists and system engineering technologists from top global brands in the consumer electronics, sports, and health industries to share case studies and application strategies, assess the range of energy solutions that are available or in R&D, and sketch out what the dominant device power ecosystems may look like in the coming years. Startups and R&D groups with energy harvesting, micro-storage, chip design and power management software will have the opportunity to network and present their innovations to prospective customers, venture and strategic investors.
