The winners of the  inaugural MT/PA Wearables at Work Awards – launched to promote innovative, scalable and game-changing uses of wearable technology  - have just been announced.

Assessed via a bipartite process with equally-weighted contributions from the panel of expert  judges and from MT’s readers, entries came in from sectors as diverse as healthcare, retail, finance and travel.

A strong field which demonstrates just how far the application of wearable tech has penetrated in a relatively short time, our winners also hint tantalisingly at even greater innovations yet to come.
