  • 1. KitKat and Android to the rescue! It is Android’s KitKat that allows Developers to achieve four important features of Wearable Devices. Renjith Ponnappan, eInfochips
  • 2. Why bother! The wearable device market opportunity in 2013 is relatively small. (only $1.4B)
  • 3. Because according to Juniper Research, revenue from wearable industry sales will reach $19 billion in 2018 -more than 13 times the $1.4 billion expected in 2013.
  • 4. Android Kit-Kat and other technologies will unlock the $19B market potential.
  • 5. Wearable devices can be smaller because Kit-Kat requires less power.
  • 6. Wearable devices will cost less because Kit-Kat has a smaller memory footprint.
  • 7. Geomagnetic vector sensors make GPS pin-point accurate.
  • 8. A Kit-Kat step counter eliminates the need for expensive accelerometers to detect motion.
  • 9. Introducing a new class of Androidbased wearable device applications.
  • 10. Fitness HEART & BREATHING RATE MONITOR CORE ACCELERATION GAUGE SPATIAL POSITIONING INTERFACE
  • 11. Apparel
  • 12. Photography Wearable light meters ensure the perfect photo every time.
