Why Read This Brief

In March 2016, Forrester published its first US consumer wearables forecast. This forecast tracks the consumer wearables installed base and device ownership. It also includes details on units sold and sales revenue by type of wearable: fitness activity trackers, hearables, smartwatches, and others. It includes historical data from 2015 plus a five-year forecast. Forrester expects consumer wearable devices to roughly double in sales over the next five years. Their extension into the future, however, will require wearables to evolve to stay relevant in the market. This report examines the uncertain incubation climate in wearable technology.
