2014 CES: The Year of Weabables

The 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show is upon us. With nearly 2 million square feet of exhibition space, over 20 thousand new product launches, and more than 150 thousand attendees, CES is the global stage for innovation. We can’t wait to check out what’s in store and how all this new innovation could affect the digital health and wellness space. Here’s what we’re excited to see and do at the 2014 CES show:

Wearables, Wearables, Wearables

Because the Jiff Platform offers an ecosystem of devices and apps, we’re interested to see what’s new and exciting in the wearables space. We’re with Tech Times in their prediction that wearable technology will headline the CES show and we’re expecting to see the latest wave of smart watches and cool sensor gadgets that you can stick just about anywhere to measure just about anything. This year’s show even features a whole Tech Zone dedicated to the “Wrist Revolution,” where style, sensors, and connectivity intersect. Our own CEO, Derek Newell, recently shared his point of view about the future of wearables in digital health with the Electronic Health Reporter- check it out the article here.

Catching up with Partners

We’re also excited for the opportunity to catch up with some of our ecosystem partners on the Jiff Platform. These guys can’t help but be innovative. This morning, Fitbit announced a partnership with Tory Burch to bring high design activity trackers to the masses. Our friends at Withings announced their brand new product, Aura, a discrete sensor that slips under your mattress to more accurately track the amount and quality of sleep you get each night. We’ll be hitting the show floor to find out what our other current (and potentially future) partners have going on and what that means for the future of digital health and wellness.

Speaking at the Digital Heath Summit

Jiff CEO, Derek Newell is participating in the panel: Brace Yourself—Your New Trainer is Your Boss taking place on Thursday, January 9th at 3:05 p.m. at the Digital Health Summit. If you’re at the show, please feel free to come hear him speak and introduce yourself after the panel. We’d love to chat!
