Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Wearable Electronics Market 2015-2019"report to their offering.
With constantly changing business scenarios, it is necessary for organizations to develop a mobile workforce to stay competitive. Constant changes in work locations, time zone barriers, and the need to access official and confidential data via an employee's personal device are resulting in an increased demand for mobile devices. Until now, bring your own device (BYOD) and company operated personally enabled (COPE) polices were only about smartphones and tablets.
However, with time, companies are expected to change their strategies to introduce smart glasses. Between BYOD and COPE, the latter is more popular because firms can secure mobile devices and monitor them. This encourages the use of devices at workplaces to bring down infrastructural costs and simplify work processes. As this trend grows, we can expect firms to offer smart glasses with built-in AR apps to be used in workplaces.
According to the report, one of the most significant features of wearables is their ability to connect with many devices, including TVs, media players, headsets, smartphones, laptops, and point of sale (PoS) terminals that have Bluetooth and NFC connectivity capabilities. Wearable devices such as smartwatches and smart glasses can be connected with headsets and smartphones. In the future these devices will facilitate a range of activities, from making payments to controlling lighting.
