Capitalize on the global wearables market

The global wearables market is growing fast. To capitalize on this opportunity, manufacturers need to address a wide range of factors that affect the quality, performance, and safety of wearable devices. Wearable device testing and certification ensures wearable products are safe, secure, and compliant with relevant regulation in different jurisdictions. TÜV SÜD supports manufacturers of wearable devices with a personalized one-stop solution to fit all their requirements and market standards. TÜV SÜD has an international reputation as a leading testing and certification body for wearable devices.

Due to size and form factor limitations, the battery life of wearable devices depends not on increasing battery size but rather on the optimization of function and operating use time as well as reduced battery rigidity. Wireless connection technologies such as Bluetooth, WiFi and ZigBee will affect battery power consumption and the rate of data transfer to other devices and the cloud. To ensure user safety, manufacturers also have to identify and eliminate hazardous chemicals in skin contact wearables as well as lithium hazards in batteries. Other important concerns include biocompatibility, RF exposure levels, regulatory requirements for electrical safety, energy efficiency, and data security and privacy of apps.
