The wearable revolution that wasn't

The wearable revolution that wasn't | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it
Wearable devices were supposed to be the next big thing, but research from Gartner projects that growth will not be nearly as robust as the smartphone market.
Olivier Janin's insight:

Indeed, wearables can't suffer any comparison with the Smartphone market. 

My 2 cents on this  : 

  • consumers still need to understand how wearables can be usefull to them. They still don't understand how contextual information pushed at the right time could be a game changer in their digital lifes. 
  • wearables technologies and services are about a more intimate barrier that Smartphone were. It is about health data.  And consumers are now educated on privacy and some dark perspective on the data usage.

L’intérêt des consommateurs pour les objets connectés dans le bien-être et le sport se confirme. Les ventes devraient plus que tripler entre 2014 et 2016 pour atteindre 290 millions d’euros, selon les experts de Xerfi qui viennent de publier une étude approfondie, après plusieurs semaines d’enquêtes et d’analyses, sous le titre : « Le marché des objets connectés pour le bien-être et le sport – Montres, balances, tensiomètres, lecteurs de glycémie et traqueurs d’activité : perspectives et jeu concurrentiel d’ici 2016 ».

Malgré de bonnes perspectives, les objets connectés ne seront pas le marché de masse espéré et resteront une juxtaposition de marchés de niche aux dynamiques et caractéristiques différentes, affirme Xerfi. " Ces objets intelligents sont en effet des améliorations de produits déjà existants avec de nouvelles fonctionnalités et de nouveaux usages. La balance connectée, par exemple, permet de suivre l’historique des mesures sur son smartphone et de partager les données avec le personnel médical ".
