Chris Baird, Director of Global Marketing at Bureau Veritas’ Consumer Products Services Division commented, “Wearable technology has been around for many decades in one form or another, the calculator watch, introduced in the 1980s, is one wide-spread worn example. As a leader in the wireless / smart world space, we have been an active player in the testing of wearable devices for many years assessing wireless, chemical, quality and EMC performance / compliance. However, the increasingly ubiquitous nature of wireless converging with products such as footwear, textiles, watches, jewelry and bracelets brings a whole host of opportunities, but also challenges in terms of performance and compliance, as well as data security. Our unique approach embracing best in class services such as wireless and chemical testing, app testing and consumer panel evaluations, all available worldwide, helps support this exciting market place in overcoming these challenges.”
