By 2024, 440 million health wearable devices are expected to be shipped worldwide. This is up from 320 million today, as wearable trackers become more sophisticated through the integration of artificial intelligence and real-time diagnostics.


Join us to hear from Peter Eckenberg about the emerging trends and outlook for wearables in healthcare and gain deeper insights through data for real-world evidence and new product development.


In addition, we will explore:

    • Overview of the current wearables industry (consumer segment, approved medical devices, etc.)
    • Applications in pharma R&D (clinical outcomes, digital biomarkers), successful use cases, and commercial viability
    • Integration with medical devices (decentralized testing, patient centric care)
    • Key success factors for companies developing and integrating wearable technology
