Wearables at Mobile World Congress

The best of what we saw


MWC stands for 'more wearables coming'

Wearable tech was big at CES, and now the mania continues at Mobile World Congress. This week’s line-up in Barcelona has included plenty of weird-looking things to put on your head—but we ignored all the headgear to focus on stuff normal people might want to actually wear.

First order of business: smartwatches and activity trackers. Our list includes hardware with firm-ish ship dates, along with a few intriguing prototypes that could ship... never? This slideshow represents the best we saw, but whether anything here is good enough to beat rumored wearables from Apple or Google is anyone’s guess.
