Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Growing niche market for wrist wearables. The popularity of wrist wearables has been growing to a large extent in the global smart wearables market. Apart from smartwatches and fitness bands, the vendors in the market are focusing on the development and manufacture of various other wrist wearables, including bracelets and tags.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Compatibility with other electronic devices. One of the most significant features of a smartwatch is its ability to connect with several devices such as TVs, media players, headsets, smartphones, laptops, point-of-sale devices, and several other devices that have Bluetooth and NFC connectivity capabilities. Currently, smartwatches can be connected with headsets and smartphones. This is expected to change soon as smartwatches will be used to make payments and control lighting in the future. Also, several third-generation smartwatches are integrated with Wi-Fi connectivity, which enables them to be connected to several devices efficiently.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Data privacy and security issues. There is a large amount of sensitive information (related to the users) that is transferred by the wrist wearables to other electronic devices. The data transferred and collected varies from the information related to the health condition of the user to his/her location that is tracked by the GPS installed in the wearable device. Most of the GPS are controlled by their respective network operators, which creates privacy concerns. Furthermore, the misplacement or theft of these devices makes them more prone to be hacked.
