The next hot trend in wearable devices? 'Hearables," IDC says

Tuesday March 21, 2017. 12:45 AM , from PC World
Wearable devices that double as clothing or get worn on the ear will grow the fastest of all wearables in the next five years, market research firm IDC said Monday.
Earworn devices, sometimes called 'hearables,' will grow by 43% every year over that period, IDC said. They started from a small base: just 700,000 devices shipped in 2016.
Clothing will grow by 77% a year, starting at 2016's level of 1.3 million clothing wearables shipped, IDC added.
Earwear and clothing together will still make up only 11% of the wearable device market in 2021, well behind smartwatches and a group of wearables that IDC calls 'basic' watches.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
