Get Your Wearable Technology a Step Ahead


Wearable technology is a growing industry due to society’s desire to be connected on the move and the industry’s ability to supply wireless connectivity in increasingly small and useful ways. New solutions appear on the market regularly, with fitness tracking watches, wellbeing rings, glasses, clothing, sports aids, headsets, motion gloves, and much more all enabled by technologies such as GNSS GPS, cellular, UWB, BLE, WLAN, and WPT. The topic of wearable equipment spans market sectors such as sport, leisure, wellbeing, medical, commercial, and industrial control.

With the advancement of new technologies such as 5G NR, global coverage and efficient energy use will further accelerate the rapid growth of wearable radio equipment. However, this rapid growth relies on the product’s ability to be co-located with other electrical and electronic equipment for satisfactory operation in its intended use, without degradation to the services it provides.

In niche applications, market share is won by having a quality product where cost isn’t always the main driver for product selection. Even in the case of consumer electronics, online customer reviews based on real product performance are the primary driver for most people.

Most regulators throughout the world impose some form of product regulation – these are mainly to protect us as consumers from a safety, health, and environmental perspective. Still, increasingly industry groups and regulators also impose additional requirements to provide assurance covering user experiences such as quality of service.

In this paper, we explore the benefits of testing to ensure product performance and common regulatory requirements to be aware of in this industry. Download the paper to read more.
