Toronto’s own Tom Emrich and his @WeAreWearables community placed 3rd and 7th in the influencer and brand lists. Congrats Tom! Your’s truly is the 28th most influential person in wearables today. Amazing!
The hottest start-ups and technology can be found every month at the We Are Wearables meetup in Toronto. At this past week’s meet-up, attendees were also treated to a presentation by Nielsen Canada on their soon to be released report: Connected Life.
Following is a summary of comments and photos from this presentation.

Your contribution will go directly into building our beta units so that we can transform LEO into a final product. But crowdfunding is not only about the funding, it’s also about the crowd! Your contribution means a whole lot more than extra cash.
I had a chance to meet the founding team of GestureLogic in late May at a We Are Wearables event at MaRS in Toronto. They are a fantastic team from Ottawa (not just a place for public employees it seems!) that is looking to change the way people exercise. They’re new product is called LEO. And very soon they will be launching an IndieGoGo campaign.
The latest We Are Wearables MeetUp was held at the end of last month. Among other interesting start-ups and projects, the event featured Toronto-based Bionym and their product, Nymi. Personally, I am a huge fan of wearables.
