This year`s IOT/WT Innovation World Cup® 2017/18 was an extraordinary edition, with more than 900 contestants worldwide registering to the competition and submitting their ground-breaking projects. Convinced especially by their innovativeness, technological feasibility, market readiness and strategic approaches, our panel of judges had the difficult task of selecting the top wearable finalists of the IOT/WT Innovation World Cup® 2017/18 in four categories (lifestyle, sports & fitness, healthcare and industrial).

These 33 techpreneurs will become the rising stars of wearable technologies and we are looking forward to showcasing their innovative talent at the official pitch and award ceremony to be held in Munich on January 30th at the 12th WT |Wearable Technologies Conference 2018 EUROPE, THE global meeting point for the entire wearables ecosystem. There the wearable winners of the IOT/WT Innovation World Cup® 2017/18 will be announced in front of a large audience of industry and innovation experts coming from all around the globe to the leading event for wearable and connected devices.

"Every year the Innovation World Cup® gives STMicroelectronics an incredible appreciation for the creativity and skill of the global community of problem solvers using wearable technologies to meet their challenges and improve lives," said Andrea Onetti, Analog MEMS Sensor Group VP and MEMS Sensor Division GM, STMicroelectronics. "Even more, we’re amazed with how these creative geniuses apply technology – and we’re especially gratified when they use the fusion of ST’s low power and extremely accurate inertial, temperature, acoustic, and environmental sensors – to improve performance, save energy, reduce size and cost, and make life better."
