The consumer electronics industry has convinced itself that wearable technology will be the next big thing, with analysts predicting a market worth over $30 billion by 2020.  That belief is driven by a desperate need for major companies to find something to follow on from laptops, tablets and PCs all of which are being commoditised.

The problem is that their model for wearable technology is built around technology push, trying to shape their technology to fit consumers.  It is a strategy that is likely to fail, as wearable technology is more, rather than less, personal.  This presentation is an overview of my recent report which takes the contrary viewpoint, building the market opportunity from known consumer behaviour and preferences.  It suggests the market will still reach $30 billion in 2020, but with a very different mix of products being made by some very different companies.

Presented at the Cambridge Wireless “Wearables – the Internet of Us” and the Wearables London Meetup.

There’s plenty of talk about mobile health, but few successful businesses.  To succeed, models need to be far more disruptive, going outside the industry box to develop their  models.  This presentation, given at Medica 2010, explains why and how.

Presented at Medica and the O2 Campus Party
