So here we are the start of 2015. The wearables market is only just at the beginning of a 10-year boom, which will unsettle business models and organisations in a much more pervasive way than the smartphone boom.
According to Gartner, more than 70 million fitness trackers and health gadgets were sold globally in 2014. The first wave of devices has focussed on wellness, but the future will be driven by harnessing the data to discover completely unexpected products and use cases.
The future of wearables will be less about the plastic on your wrist, and more about making sense of the data these devices generate to do something even more useful for the user.
