The Wearable Technology Show ran in London this week, 15-16 March, at the ExCeL exhibition centre.
Our man on the spot, capturing pics of Wearable Technology, is the Electronics Weekly technology editor, Steve Bush.

Exhibitors at the Wearable Technology Show were from all levels. For wearables for example, there were: suppliers providing components for wearables, firms making wearables, and service-providers using wearables.
Applications ranged far and wide, from leisure through well-being to medical, and from home-automation to smart textiles.
In general, chip firms were concentrating on ultra-low power processing, ultra-low power sensing, Bluetooth and power conditioning – all of which link well to both wearables and IoT.
Alongside the chip firms there were plenty of virtual (and augmented) reality headsets at the Wearable Technology Show, some because that is what the company makes and others because they are linked to games or services.
As well as an ‘Apps & IoT developer’ track at the event, there were two Tech Labs running at the event: ‘Hands on Azure IoT Coding Lab: Data from Devices using Azure IoT Hub’ and ‘Hands On Windows 10 Coding Lab: The Amazing Automatic Photo Booth’.
