Free

We Are Wearables Toronto has partnered with Best Buy Canada to look at the furrier side of wearable tech: Pet Wearables on June 3, 2015. Fido is getting connected and we are featuring some of the leading wearable and IoT companies that are transforming pet care completely.

Hear from experts and get hands-on with technologies that are furthering pet fitness and health, changing the way we train and enable remote monitoring and play. Our stage and demo area will host: WonderWoof, Binatone, Petbot, FitBark, CLEO Collar and Petcube. In addition we are pleased to welcome Animal Planet TV host and bestselling author, Brad Pattison and vet, entrepreneur and futurist Adam Little of LifeLearn as part of our pet wearable panel.

Of course, what would a pet wearable be without animals! Get ready to take some epic selfies with some of these furry friends thanks to our friends at Best Buy Canada:

  • Moxie, a registered child friendly and reading certified St John Ambulance Therapy dog and the star of the kids book series Adventures of Moxie & Chicken who was also featured on Mashable for her use of GoPro
  • Geronimo, a silver Fox
  • King Julian, a ring-tailed Lemur
