We Are Wearables Toronto brings the Toronto community together to learn, discuss and celebrate the growing wearable technology space. Their aim is to collectively foster adoption and facilitate innovation in the wearable tech space. This includes supporting those already working in wearable tech within the city as well as encouraging and inspiring new projects, partnerships, apps, content, experiences, and users. They welcome startups, entrepreneurs, investors, brands, marketers, advertisers, developers, designers and enthusiasts to join the movement.
This month they gather a group of journalists to discuss Apple Watch™, showcase some of the companies behind the first Apple Watch™ apps and celebrate the official launch of Linkitz, a modular, programmable wearable kit for girls. Join The Working Group and The Globe and Mail at the event to learn more about The Globe and Mail’s new Apple Watch™ application.
The time has finally come for Apple Watch™ to hit the wrist of users. Apple Watch™ became available for pre-order online on April 10 and will start to ship on April 24. Unofficial estimates suggest that Apple sold nearly 1 million watches on its first day of pre-orders making it the most successful smartwatch to date.
May’s WWTO brings together a group of journalists from the The Toronto Star, Global News, The Financial Post, MobileSyrup and BetaKit, who have been following the launch of Apple’s first wearable, to talk about the media reaction; give their opinion on the Watch; and discuss its opportunity to change the way we live our lives.
In addition, we have invited some of the companies behind the very first Apple Watch™ applications including Connected Lab, The Working Group, The Globe and Mail and Tangerine to showcase their Watch apps and join us in a panel conversation around how they built meaningful experiences for the wrist.
