Taking the pulse of the tech community shows us that the initial hype and futuristic curiosity associated with wearable tech is slowly fading away, making way for more down-to-earth considerations. What was once a wearable technology melting pot is now starting to settle as very distinct types of technologies that one can wear to improve personal quality of life, monitor health, assist with dangerous professional tasks or, let’s admit it, to simply look fashionable, have evolved. Intellectual property (IP) protection has been and will continue to be a very important aspect of wearable tech development, in order to protect technology and to fight competitors who infringe it. IP assets are notably at the center of public fights between Fitbit and Jawbone, or between Valencell, Fitbit and Apple, just to name a few. The key for wearable tech developers is to identify which elements to protect with IP assets, and which elements of know-how and confidential information they want to keep a trade secret, in order to keep their competitive edge longer, but at a greater risk of divulgation without protection.
