Wearables: Moving from Niche to Mainstream

Sensor-laden wearable devices, with their unique ability to capture data generated by the body, will fuel the next wave of growth and innovation in personal computing—part of a larger phenomenon we call Smart Body, Smart World. Today, wearables like the Nike+ FuelBand are proliferating in the health and fitness space, but they occupy a relatively niche market. The tipping point for wearables will come when they break out of health as a vertical into health as a horizontal, applying body-generated data to diverse scenarios like social networking, gaming, navigation, commerce, and productivity. Winning products will mash up data from disparate sources, deliver insights that support more informed decision-making, and enable new forms of extra-sensitive communication and self-expression.
