Wearables in 2020: The Impact of COVID-19

This webinar was originally broadcast on 10th June 2020
In this webinar, Principal Analyst James Hayward will present IDTechEx's latest findings on the wearable technology industry.
The webinar will provide updates across each product type within wearables, confirming 2019 shipment data and reviewing the historic market trend that has brought us into 2020, and then discussing the significant impact which COVID-19 is having in each sector. Whilst the majority of this impact is negative, streaks of optimism emerge for many companies that see new product opportunities and trends rising during the pandemic. The webinar will review the latest in each product area, and give case studies detailing the impact of COVID-19 so far.
The topics reflect each report in IDTechEx's wearable technology portfolio, including:
  • Smartwatches & Fitness trackers
  • Hearables
  • Skin patches
  • E-textiles & smart clothing
  • Virtual, augmented and mixed reality (VR, AR, MR)
