Roll-Outs at BMW North America, Shell, and More Capped Off a Year of Digital Transformation

What an incredible year for RealWear! The theme for much of 2019 was Safety, Security, and Stability.

We built a solid foundation with our Series B funding thanks to Teradyne, Bose Ventures and Qualcomm Ventures. We announced high-profile deployments from Shell, BMW North America, and many more.

In 2019, we united our community of connected worker pioneers at RealWear Summit and our very first RealWear Connect. And finally, our team introduced our rugged enterprise wearables to an even wider audience at events like Gastech, Hannover Messe, EWTS, and AWE.

Here are a few of our highlights from 2019:
