Apparently 2015 is the year of wearables. With the wide variety of announcements and rumors surrounding watch-based technology, consumers are going to flock to the offerings from major and minor players. The outcome will probably be predictable. But lets leave that to third quarter, after Apple releases its products.
“The only drawback might be that really successful wearables could be used to spy on us. A case in Calgary, Canada, could be a first, where data from a Fitbit is being used to try to show that a fitness trainer who suffered an accident had lower activity levels than would be expected for someone in her profession. The case is claimed to be unique – but that’s only so far. Perhaps in the future, our wearables will be used to prove if we really are as active as we claim to be, and really did run (or walk) where and when we said we did.”
