Huami & McLaren partner on wearables for e-sports

After watching some E-sports recently and wondering myself how wearables could play a part, it is interesting to hear, Huami announced it is partnering with McLaren Applied Technologies to develop smart wearables for e-sports.

According to recent data, the global market for e-sports is expected to see growth in the coming years.

The 2018 revenues hit an estimated $905 million, and this is expected to increase to $1.1 billion this year and $1.5 billion in 2020.

After personally watching E-Sports centred around F1 and autosports there is much similarity between virtual and real motorsport. We are also seeing teams creating an E-Sports team that shares the same names with teams Like McLaren F1 and Mercedes AMG F1 team.McLaren E sports

The first stage of the collaboration will see Huami’s tech used to help select the winner of the McLaren Shadow Project e-sports event in Woking, England.

The competition, which launched last July, saw over 500,000 people apply to join in. Those interested can watch a live stream of the finals on the McLaren YouTube channel on January 16th and 17th.
