Raleigh, NC – September 22, 2015 – Valencell, a leader in performance biometric data sensor technology, today announced that president and co-founder Dr. Steven LeBoeuf will present What if There is No Killer App for Wearables? during the afternoon sessions at the IEEE Computer Society Rock Stars of Wearables on September 23rd, 2015 in Austin, Texas.

Dr. LeBoeuf will join numerous industry experts in the wearable space who will discuss topics ranging from how wearables will impact the enterprise, the integration of mobile and wearables, to how wearables will enrich human and interpersonal experiences, improve health, and help users to better understand themselves.

“The wearables market is exploding with opportunities, but there is no one ‘killer app’ emerging across different uses cases and markets. There are a number of reasons for this phenomenon, but one common theme is that compelling user experiences that provide accurate, relevant, and personal insights are critical to the success of the wearable industry,” said Dr. Steven LeBoeuf, president and co-founder of Valencell.

During his session, LeBoeuf will outline the numerous use cases in varying markets and industries for wearables, as well as the importance and need for a compelling user experience. In his presentation, Dr. LeBoeuf will detail how even today’s most common current use case, fitness and activity tracking, is being underserved by the offerings in today’s market, given the available technology and opportunity for captivating user experiences.

The Rock Stars of Wearables 2015 event is presented by IEEE Computer Society, the world’s leading membership organization for professionals in all aspects of modern computing – from cloud to big data, security to mobile, robotics to software defined systems, wearables to Internet of Things (IoT). The event will take place on September 23, 2015 at the Stephen F. Austin Intercontinental Hotel in Austin, Texas.
