  • Why Kardia Band from AlvieCor — which allows Apple Watch users to track their EKG from their wrists — was approved and what it means for other wearables
  • Why the ingestibles category is one of the big new developments in the future of wearables (including the recently approved Abilify and MyCite)
  • Why device manufacturers need to keep a close watch on companies that provide biometric information
  • How the FDA’s pilot program — which includes big wearables players like Apple, Fitbit and Samsung — provides a basis for fast-tracking your wearables and sensors
  • How to conduct clinical trials involving wearables and sensors
