Curated Wearables News

These are the news items that I have curated during the monitoring of the API space that have some relevance to the Wearables conversation and I wanted to include in my research. I am using all of these links to better understand how the space is defining not just their APIs, but their schema, and other moving parts of their API operations.

Featured Wearables Companies and Organizations

These are the organizations I come across in my research who are doing interesting things in the API space. They could be companies, institutions, government agencies, or any other type of organizational entity. My goal is to aggregate so I can stay in tune with what they are up to and how it impacts the API space.

Other Wearables Companies and Organizations

These are additional companies who have APIs, but do not have as much detaila nd resources available to rank with the others.
