Wearable Devices to Hit 10M Units | EE Times | Wearable Technology | Scoop.it

Wearable electronic devices will sell 10 million units in 2014 and generate about $3 billion, selling more than 100 million units by 2020, according to research analyst firm Deloitte.

 

The devices with sales that will reach these figures include smart glasses, fitness bands, and watches. The firm also forecasts total worldwide shipments of smartphones, tablets, PCs, TV sets, and gaming consoles to surpass $750 billion in 2014 before leveling off as consumers continue to find ways to use devices for multiple purposes.

 

"We're seeing some good traction in wearable electronics," said Jeremie Bouchaud, principal analyst for MEMS and sensors at IHS. "As a market for itself, it's starting to get interesting."...

The Future of Wearable Technology

The Future of Wearable Technology | Wearable Technology | Scoop.it

You probably thought your Uncle Henry was a little weird (and annoying) when he kept showing you how many more Nike FuelBand calories he needed to burn/earn to reach his preset daily goal. But what’s amazing is how that little wrist band with its tight feedback loop displaying points can actually motivate people to improve their lifestyle. Oh, it also makes a nice watch.

 

We’re at the dawn of a new industry loosely called "wearable technology" that may have reached $4.6 billion in sales around the world already this year.And Google Glass isn’t even for sale yet. Many geeks already are on board. The April Modis Geek Pride Survey of people aged 18 or over found that "61 percent of self-described geeks said they would buy and wear a smart watch," and "56 percent would do the same with smart glasses." Perhaps even more interesting, 37 percent of non-geeks were also interested in smart watches, and 35 percent were interested in smart glasses....But where is the trend going?
