THE WEARABLES REPORT: Growth Trends, Consumer Attitudes, And Why Smartwatches Will Dominate

Wearables face unique obstacles that will lead them to have less of an immediate market impact compared with tablets and smartphones.

For now, most of the devices need to connect with a smartphone or tablet for most of their functionality.

Wearables also suffer from a perception problem. Consumers still don’t understand how a wearable might really benefit them. In a recent report on the wearable computing market from BI Intelligence, we also discuss other barriers to adoption, including price, lack of functionality, and style.

We also look at how how the wearables market will perform in the long run. We forecast out shipments numbers, explain why the smartwatch will be the leading wearable device category going forward, and analyse proprietary results from our BI Intelligence consumer survey on smartwatch purchase intent.
