Google, Apple and Snapchat were just some of the winners announced at the fourth annual Wearable Awards this morning by organisers of the Wearable Technology Show, which is currently taking place at ExCeL in London.
Tech giants Google, Apple, Snapchat and Epson all received accolades, as well as innovative star-ups including Realwear, Petcube and Proximie. The full list of winners is below.
Over 5,000 industry professionals and ‘prosumers’ are in attendance at London’s ExCeL for the fourth Wearable Technology Show, as are more than 100 exhibitors from 20 countries.
More than 50 products are being launched at the show exclusively to UK media – they can be found at: //bit.ly/WTS17MediaLaunches
Says Wearable Technology Show COO John Weir: “The Wearable Awards get stronger and stronger each year. More than 400 companies entered for 2017, making it one of the most sought-after accolades in technology,”
“Given the impact Google and Apple have had on the industry over the last 12 months and the success of Snapchat’s IPO last week, it’s no surprise these behemoths walked away winners this year.
“It’s also great to see start-ups break through and pick up awards – hopefully the prestige of being a winner and the resulting publicity will propel them along their journey to further success.”
