  1. 1. Top Wearables Predictions for the Year Ahead and 2018: Year in Review © 2018 Valencell, Inc Dr. Steven LeBoeuf December 2018
  2. 2. © 2018 Valencell, Inc Looking at where we’ve been and where we’re headed. Agenda: • 2018 Year in Review Trends and accomplishments • Predictions for 2019 What to expect from the wearables market • Key takeaways • Q&A
  3. 3. 2018 Year in Review Where We’ve Been
  4. 4. © 2018 Valencell, Inc 2018 Prediction: Consumer wearables and medical device markets will “officially” converge A medical device company will buy a major wearable company, or a major wearable company will buy a healthcare company, or maybe both. “Fitbit buys Twine Health in bid to become a more serious health care tool” “Apple is launching medical clinics to deliver the ‘world’s best health care experience’ to its employees” “Apple Watch 4 Is Now An FDA Class 2 Medical Device” “Garmin, Actigraph partner on wearable-driven medical research”
  5. 5. © 2018 Valencell, Inc 2018 Prediction: Viable cuffless blood pressure products will launch for the first time Like many predictions in Valencell history, we were right about everything but timing. While it may be later than we anticipated, cuffless BP is close. 2019 product launch:
  6. 6. © 2018 Valencell, Inc 2018 Prediction: The ear will be a primary location for innovation in wearables “Valencell and Sonion Partner for Biometric Ear Modules” “Google and Amazon could be working on Apple AirPods competitors” “Bose is entering new territory with noise-masking sleepbuds” “Starkey Livio AI hearing aid doubles as a fitness tracker... it even includes Alexa voice control.”
  7. 7. © 2018 Valencell, Inc 2018 Prediction: Every major headphone company will launch true-wireless earbuds in 2018 2017: 2018: 2019: Remaining holdouts will announce product launches
  8. 8. 2019 Predictions A Look Ahead
  9. 9. © 2018 Valencell, Inc 2019 Prediction: Major regulatory updates from the FDA • The FDA recently announced a new pilot program which includes big wearable players like Apple, Fitbit, Samsung and several other companies. The program would help companies fast track health developments. • FDA plans to overhaul the 510(k) clearance process for medical devices. • We will continue to see major updates from the FDA in 2019 as lessons are learned
  10. 10. © 2018 Valencell, Inc 2019 Prediction: Biometric devices will improve public health at reduced costs Insurers are getting involved which changes the economics of wearable adoption at scale. “Life Insurance Companies Are Luring Fitbit and Apple Watch Users With Deals…the industry sees health- conscious customers as good risks.” “John Hancock is making discounted Apple Watches available to life insurance policyholders enrolled in its Vitality program.” “Humana says it will use Fitbit Care to assess insurance premiums”
  11. 11. © 2018 Valencell, Inc 2019 Prediction: Biometrics will be embedded in more VR/AR products • Mainstream consumer use has been limited due to availability, cost, and other factors, but use will increase in 2019. • VR and biometric technology continue to build and develop, influencing how we use these technologies in industries like healthcare and fitness. • Augmented reality will create experiences using sound
  12. 12. © 2018 Valencell, Inc 2019 Prediction: First biometric hearing aid will launch
  13. 13. ©2016 Valencell. Inc One thing you will NOT see in 2019: medical-grade noninvasive glucose monitoring There are only 3 things certain in life: • death • taxes • the utter absurdity truly non-invasive blood glucose monitoring suitable for dosing insulin References: 1) https://valencell.com/blog/2018/08/important-questions-about-non-invasive-glucose-monitoring/ 2) http://physicsworld.com/cws/article/indepth/2017/jun/08/just-beyond-our-fingertips 3) http://www.mendosa.com/The%20Pursuit%20of%20Noninvsive%20Glucose,%20Fourth%20Edition.pdf
  14. 14. © 2018 Valencell, Inc Key takeaways • Medical wearables will see accelerated growth in 2019 • This trend will be fueled by regulatory changes lowering the barrier to product entry and market awareness of heart-health-monitoring wearables (Alivecor and Apple products) • Insurance plans based on data from wearables will drive market adoption of traditional fitness wearables for public health purposes • The 1st biometric hearing aid will launch in 2019, setting the stage for medical hearables
  15. 15. Q&A Open Discussion
  16. 16. © 2018 Valencell, Inc Join us at CES 2019! Booth #44006 Sands Expo, Level 2; in the Digital Health area Along with our partners at Sonion, we’ll demonstrate advanced wearable and hearable sensors and components that are enabling cutting edge devices, such as hearing aids that can measure vital signs and monitor health conditions.
