CAMBRIDGE, England, January 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Plastic Logic, the flexible display technology specialist, is pleased to make
available the white paper produced in association with Smithers Apex,
providers of information on high growth electronics markets.

In 2013 talk of wearable technology, especially regarding smartwatches and
health/lifestyle products, increased dramatically, as did the number of
product concepts appearing online or in the press. This is understandable in
the light of figures which point towards exponential growth in the market for
mobile wearable smart devices. However, there also appears to be a common
consensus that these devices have yet to realise their full potential.

The potential referred to not only relates to function, but also to form and
it is the latter that is usually cited as holding back development, acceptance
and take up of wearables. Wearable technology needs to be comfortable,
convenient, robust and stylish for it to be compelling enough to sell in
volume - something that was not borne out by many of the devices on show at
CES 2014.

The White Paper provides not only valuable insight and information on smart
watches, but also on health/lifestyle devices, smart clothing and medical
applications for wearable technology. It also seeks to outline the substantial
market opportunities that exist for the truly compelling wearable applications
that possess the convenience, comfort, durability, worthwhile electronic
features and aesthetics as to enhance consumers' lifestyles.
