Remember that weird thing with the gears inside and little arms floating around on a surface? Or maybe you used to have this weird device that would only tell you the time via a greyish green digital screen? Yes, those things are called watches and they are quickly becoming candidates for the time capsule due to the rise of smartwatches and smart devices. Why do you need to wear a watch when your smartphone tells you what time it is, or better yet, your smartwatch! Experts say that smartwatches could overcome regular boring watches as soon at 2020, which is only in 4 years, if you can believe it.
Research firm Mintel released some data which stated that 1 in 5 consumers have a strong desire to purchase a smartwatch or fitness tracker device in the next year. Currently only 6% of the US population owns a smart device.
However, with watch industry statistics, some other experts are not sure if smartwatches can truly take over the market. 25% of watch wearers enjoy wearing timepieces because of their fashionable appeal, but most smartwatches are still kind of…ugly. They look like a piece of technology, not a piece of fashion. However, that is also changing with more smart devices being integrated into things that people actually want to wear.
Will you buy one?
