What is it going to take for wearables to achieve real market penetration?
catamount 10 weeks ago
There has been a wave of wearables hitting the market for the past year or two, with everything from Nike’s Fuelband to Pebble watches to Google Glass getting lots of press. However, I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve seen people “in the wild” wearing any of it. Granted, I’m in the midwest and not San Francisco, but the old saying “it will play in Peoria” still had a point, and from what I’ve seen it’s not playing in Peoria. Is it just too early for widespread adoption at this point? Are we going to ever see wearable acheive ubiquity in the same way smartphones have?
