Consumer Demand Analysis of Smart Wearable Devices in China report analysis is based on the primary data collected from 1 April 2014 to 14 April 2014 in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, and Tianjin where a total of 1,000 effective samples were drawn for further investigation. The report first gives a profile of the target market customers, followed by their usage and purchasing behavior of smart handheld devices. Also provided are their preferences for smart wearable device applications and designs.

The report finds that target market customers for smart wearable devices are medium-heavy smart handheld device users aged between 20 and 29 who have a higher education level and reliable income source. They are more familiar with wrist-worn and head-mounted devices and are smart buyers who will acquire as much information before buying a new product. They also care more about a product's function than its added value, such as sleek design or the impression it gives to people. For applications, most consumers regard head-mounted and wrist-worn devices as accessories that are used to extend smartphone functions. Read more at http://www.marketreportsonline.com/347132.html.

The global wearable devices market is growing steadily, but it holds immense business potential with the rapid pace of innovation and wider acceptance. Currently, wearable devices are still in its early stage, with most devices being launched for healthcare or sports activities. Several fitness-related wearable devices were launched in 2013 and it is believed that more smart bracelets, watches and other products will drive rapid growth in the wearable device market.

Wearable devices will generate market potential for IOT (Internet of Other Things) demand, as these devices facilitate the connection of places, people and things. Broadly, the key factors that will drive the growth of global wearable devices industry are introduction of innovative products, convenience of carrying, wearables being used for business purposes and ease of entry of new players. The recent years have seen the entry of many smaller companies in different application sectors and producing innovative products using wearable technology.

However, washability of wearable devices, privacy concerns, battery back-up and lack of wider social acceptability and several other issues pose major challenge to the growth of this business. Major trends prevailing in the global wearable devices market are bracelets dominating the market, planned introduction of iTV 4G by Apple and cloud computing being touted as the next IT wave.

Wearable technology: The new tech battleground? provides a case study that analyzes Google's involvement with wearables, and what it will hope to achieve within the space. It also addresses the underlying strategy behind other key players' involvement, such as Samsung, Sony, adidas AG and Nike.

Features and benefits of this report (http://www.marketreportsonline.com/343448.html  ) include:

  • This report contains an analysis of the underlying strategies involved in Google's Glass product concept.
  • Read about Samsung's new range of smart watches, and how they complement the company's existing product offering and business model.
  • Find out how other players, such as Sony, adidas, and Nike have approached the nascent wearable technology market.


Google Glass, a device that enables users to enjoy much of the functionality of their smartphone through what is, essentially, a high-tech pair of spectacles, made waves on its unveiling in April 2014. Critically, the product remains at concept stage, is only available to select 'Glass Explorers' for $1,500 and is not yet a commercial product.

Samsung has used its first major move into the realms of wearable tech, its line of 'Gear' smart watches, to bolster the appeal of its range of smartphones and other smart devices. Furthermore, the company's smart watches mark a departure away from Android towards Tizen, the company's own operating system.

It is important to note that other tech companies, as well as non-tech players, have entered the wearable technology market. Crucially, however, Sony's latest wearable devices run on Android - including its Google Glass competitor, SmartEyeGlass - and, unlike Samsung, the company has made them compatible with other manufacturers' Android devices.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
