Wearables and Beyond

Thrive Wearables are delighted to be back for a second year at GIANT to curate a full day of talks and discussions exploring the role wearables and other human-centric connected technologies are playing in a rapidly changing health and wellness landscape.

Our track will balance taking a wide view, an examination of applications making a real difference to people and the science underpinning what is a rapidly moving opportunity. We will explore a raft of new innovations and approaches to using the rich array of information emanating from the dynamic human, the transmission and processing of this sensitive and valuable stream of data.

Our track will encourage debate and discussion between our stellar line-up and you, the audience. 

Curated by Thrive Wearables Ltd

Dr. Jacob Skinner

CEO, Thrive Wearables

Working with GIANT for the second year running is a great privilege for us. Their ethos and passion is aligned to ours and the speakers and delegates at the show are a wonderful community. We hope to deliver broad reaching insights through our speaker program and provide an open forum for discussion around wearables and beyond.
Human connected technology is now not just about Wearables, but is about in-body technology as well. As technology shrinks and becomes more powerful, this represents a huge opportunity for further health and wellness innovation.
