Sport and fitness wearables

Sport and fitness wearables need robust and reliable performance to accurately track our athletic feats and daily activities. 

Despite the deep penetration of sport and fitness wearables today, we’re still at the cusp of the era of the quantified self, in which wearable technology is leveraged to monitor our physical activities, our routine behaviors, and our sleep, 24/7, 365 days a year. Advancing miniaturization of the required hardware components, ever more sophisticated sensors and algorithms, and reduced power requirements are paving the way for smaller, more accurate, more secure, and longer lasting sport and fitness wearables.
