Switzerland: a strategic location for Wearable Technologies

In Switzerland, Wearable Technology companies benefit from a very comprehensive ecosystem. Resulting in extremely functional but also elegantly designed products, a centre of excellence is quickly emerging. The competence base for microtechnics and miniaturisation is excellent and the efficiency of the electronics supply chain is second to none. This is clearly demonstrated when it comes to sensors and low power connectivity technologies.

As sports, fitness and medical applications are converging, Swiss wearable tech can capitalise on the proximity to numerous international sports federations, digital health companies and countless medtech / implants global leaders.

Finally, global IT and augmented reality stakeholders drive the translational research: Google, Disney, Logitech all have major R&D labs in Switzerland and collaborate very closely with the Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology spin-offs.

Get in touch to learn more about why Switzerland is the most competitive business location and one of the most innovative countries in the world.

Meet your future Swiss partners at the Wearable Technology Show in London (15-16.03.2016).
