The market for wearable devices is exponentially growing, and so too are its use cases – with new emerging health and well-being applications introduced every day.

As these fitness bands, smartwatches, and other personal gadgets hit the market, the winning differentiator will be OEMs that deliver exceptional user experiences (UX) with a cost-effective bill of materials.
With the proliferation of this space, gone too is the reliance on traditional mobile operating systems and higher-end applications processors to build wearable products. No really!

Leading silicon vendor NXP® Semiconductors and embedded GUI expert Crank Software join forces to discuss how easy it can be to build a sophisticated wearable UX within a device that is powered by an MCU at its core. In this session, we’ll explore how the latest NXP i.MX RT595 crossover MCU enables a smooth, rich graphical experience, as well we’ll take a closer look at the intuitive GUI application development environment provided by Crank’s Storyboard for building smartphone-like experiences for today's wearable devices.

During this session, you’ll learn:

  • Understand techniques to improve UX on smaller screen sizes
  • Develop wearable apps that consume minimal memory and power
  • Evaluate hardware to best-fit performance and cost requirements

This session includes a live demo of a Storyboard wearable application running on an NXP i.MX RT 595 MCU.
