Love all the latest wearable gear and gadgets? Are you data infatuated and always looking for more metrics to analyze your workouts? Or are you the opposite and love to go out "au naturel"? Wearable fitness technology has come a long way, and we all know people who love it and those that swear against it.

But is it really beneficial to all levels of athletes? This two-on-two debate features the team of Ian Fraser (co-owner of Cyclelogik and an accomplished triathlete) and Shane Maley (physiotherapist, cyclist, and skier), battling on the for side of the ring, vs Chris Masson (degree in kinesiology, swimmer, and rower) and Gord Smith (web developer and cyclist) taking a stand against wearable tech. Come watch, cheer, jeer, tweet while some serious fitness enthusiasts duke it out in the Great Fitness Wearable Debate 2014 with YOU the audience acting as judge and jury in determining the outcome.

Come for some snacks at networking at 6:00pm, the event begins at 6:30.
