Wearable Computing Market Growth & Trends
For instance, wearable ECG monitors, continuous glucose monitors, and smart insulin pens help patients manage their conditions and provide healthcare professionals with real-time data for monitoring and diagnosis. This expansion of medical wearables indicates market growth in the healthcare sector. Moreover, wearable computing has also made its way into fashion and accessories. Designers and brands collaborate with technology companies to create smart garments, jewelry, and accessories embedded with sensors and connectivity. These fashionable wearables combine technology and style, catering to a growing consumer demand for wearable devices that blend seamlessly into their lifestyles.
For instance, in November 2020, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. partnered with fashion designer Thom Browne, Inc., a fashion brand based in New York, to introduce a limited edition of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 smartphone. The collaboration aimed to bring together technology and high fashion, with the device featuring a custom design by Thom Browne, including signature colors, wallpapers, and custom app icons. The adoption of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) devices is rising. Products like the Oculus Quest VR headset and Microsoft HoloLens AR headset have gained popularity, indicating the growth of wearables in the entertainment and gaming industries. These devices offer immersive experiences and have opened new opportunities for wearable computing.
For instance, HoloLens is an AR headset developed by Microsoft that overlays digital information in the real world, enabling applications like remote assistance, architectural visualization, and industrial training. Wearable computing has applications in the manufacturing, logistics, and maintenance industries. Devices like smart glasses with AR overlays provide workers with hands-free access to information, instructions, and remote assistance. This improves efficiency and safety in industrial settings, showcasing the growth potential of wearable computing in the industrial sector. For instance, Bose Corp., based in the U.S., introduced Bose Frames, an audio sunglass with Bluetooth connectivity. They allow users to wirelessly connect to their smartphones and enjoy music, make calls, and access virtual assistants without needing traditional headphones or earbuds.
