Chicago Firm Teams Up With Toronto Based Group to Present the Latest Trends in Wearable Tech

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Jan 26, 2015) -  Uproar PR today announces that it is hosting and sponsoring the first We Are Wearables meet up in Chicago of 2015. The presentation comes hot off the heels of the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas and will give the city's tech enthusiasts a full recap, allowing them to learn more about the newest wearable gadgets on the market. The event will also be moderated by the company's vice president, Tory Patrick.

We Are Wearables brings tech communities together to learn and discuss the wearable space. Its aim is to collectively foster adoption and facilitate innovation by acting as a hub for collaboration and sharing stories of those leading the charge in this new wave of computing. 

Writers and analysts who attended CES will be present highlighting the biggest trends on the showroom floor as well which products they think will be hot this year. Attendees will hear commentary from media and tech experts at the Chicago Tribune, Mintel, and Chicago Inno as well as We Are Wearables Toronto founder, Tom Emrich.

"We're excited to be such a driving force behind We Are Wearables in Chicago," said Tory Patrick, VP at Uproar PR. "Having attended CES earlier this month and seeing first hand all of the innovative technology hitting the market this year, we're eager to share our insider knowledge with the local tech community."

In addition to a thought leadership panel with some of industry's foremost experts, Chicago-based wearable start-ups will take the stage to demo their newest products. Mira will present its smart jewelry and talk with We Are Wearables attendees about wearable trends for women. Guests will also get a first-hand look at the MYZONE, a chest strap and monitoring system that transmits heart rate, calories and effort in real time to a live display and wirelessly uploads the data to the MYZONE Lite App. As well as a demo of Matchup, the platform for people with fitness trackers to challenge each other, compete, collect achievements, win prizes and make friends.
