Valencell Named Finalist in 2012 CTIA E-Tech Awards

Valencell, an innovator in mobile fitness technology integrated into audio headset earbuds, was named a finalist in the healthcare and wellness category of CTIA’s annual Emerging Technology (E-Tech) Awards competition. The CTIA E-Tech Awards honor the most innovative new products in 15 categories spanning the areas of mobile apps, consumer electronics, enterprise and infrastructure. Winners, including Best in Show and Best Online Pick, will be announced on Wednesday, May 9 at 2:00 p.m. CDT by Jon Fortt, technology correspondent for CNBC on the Exhibit Innovations Stage at International CTIA WIRELESS, taking place May 8–10, 2012 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.

Hundreds of entries were judged by a panel of recognized industry experts, media and analysts and scored on innovation, functionality, technological importance, implementation and overall “wow” factor.

Valencell “wowed” judges with its V-LINC™ sensor technology that seamlessly integrates into audio headset earbuds. It continuously measures more real-time biometric and physiological data than other fitness monitors, with higher accuracy, and does so in a single device. V-LINC™ is the only solution that allows you to accurately capture personalized fitness data using the ear such as heart rate, steps taken, calories burned, speed and cardiovascular fitness (VO2max).

Between now and May 8, website visitors may vote for the “Best Online Pick” at www.ctiashow.com/awards. International CTIA WIRELESS show attendees will vote onsite via text message for entries in the E-Tech Awards showcase in Booth 4575 at the Emerging Technology Zone to win “Best in Show.” For more information on the E-Tech Awards, visit www.ctiashows.com/awards.
