In 2021, wearable technology will soar as smartwatch users seek for health-related functions. Despite predictions of a downturn, smartwatch and wearables sales have soared in the wake of the worldwide epidemic. According to recent research from experts CCS Insight, sales of "wrist-worn wearables" would grow by 20% by 2020. Wearables will account for 142 million (up from 115 million) units in2021, with fitness trackers continuing to increase, with 90 million (up from 78 million) sold in the year. CCS Insight's analysis corresponds to the results of a survey of 2,000 smartwatch users conducted by the business, which identifies the most common uses for wrist wearables. Fitness tracking - steps and sleep was determined to be the most popular, with 61 percent of respondents. However, a startling 57 percent of users want health and wellness monitoring, indicating that heart rate monitor-enabled functions like ECG, high/low heart rate detection, and blood pressure monitoring are resonating with smartwatch users. Sports tracking was cited as an important feature by 54 percent of users. Only 25% of respondents utilized contactless payments, and smart home/voice assistants were similarly low on the list. While the cellular Apple Watch was successful in the United States, and the much-publicized success of linked GPS kids watches in China, CCS Insight stated that other markets have been hesitant to adopt 4G smartwatches. "In our research, we discovered that the cost of smartwatches with 4G LTE connection remains a significant barrier to adoption. Respondents indicated they aren't interested in these gadgets unless the price drops, or they cost the same as non-connected watches "CCS Insight's Leo Gebbie remarked: So, how do smartwatches and fitness trackers fare in the future? According to CCS Insight, the market will nearly double to 379 million units by 2025, and the key will be persuading Android smartphone users to adopt wearables in the same way that iOS users have. "Google's renewed commitment to wearables is perhaps the most significant shot in the arm the industry has ever received." The businesses have created the Wear OS platform in collaboration with Samsung in the hopes of uniting the non-Apple market in the same manner that Android has competed with iOS, Gebbie added. A big part of it will be the debut of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 with Wear OS. Google, on the other hand, appears to be stumbling through the rollout of its new operating system. TicWatch and Fossil devices will run the new Wear 3, however they won't get the upgraded OS until an undetermined time in 2022, despite being released in 2021. Increasing the number of Android users? Perhaps next year.
