Wearable Technology (WT) is on the rise, with sales expected to reach upwards of USD 100 Billion by 2018.(1) Smart wristbands that track biometric activity, fitness and health are a profitable business, and a major presence in the global USD 38.5 billion market for wireless health-related technologies.
UL helps manufacturers understand and keep up with necessary regulatory and commercial Smart-wristband requirements. Performance verification, interoperability services and safety testing – especially to safeguard against bodily harm such as skin burns and harmful rays – are essential elements of success, and reduce the risk of recalls and damaged reputations.
UL Consumer Technology Division – a trusted leader in supporting successful global product launches – is committed to guiding manufacturers through the certification process to ensure that their product is compliant, and ready for market. Our worldwide network of accredited labs can even offer bundled certifications for multiple countries without additional testing. That translates into fast and efficient global market access, and a clear competitive edge.
