2. SmartWatches: Expect more fashionable and functional
watches to hit the market in 2014. Smartwatch developers
must focus on cutting prices, adding more apps, and
improving the look to attract broad consumer interest. The
expected iWatch announcement from Apple might just do for
watches what the iPhone did for mobile phones
3. Smart Glasses: Expect a number of announcements in
2014 within smart glasses, which has huge potential for any
workforce that could benefit from access to hands free
computing. Google isn’t the only game in town. Vuzix,
GlassUp, Recon Instruments and Telepathy are ones to watch
too.
4. Smart Clothing: Real, working smart clothing might be a
bit further off, but it’s on its way. Smart Clothing like
OMSignal, Hexoskin and Athos will lead the way.
5. Fashion Required!!: For consumer wearables to really
take off, they must be fashionable. In 2014, look for leading
device manufacturers to focus on the fashion and style of
these devices.

will communicate not only with smartphones, but with other
‘things’, both other wearables and other sensors/devices. This
ability to communicate seamlessly and transparently will
provide new and innovative capabilities for enterprises to
leverage wearables.
13. Security: In 2014, IT professionals will need to decide how
to cope with the increasing threat from wearables. For those
who found implementing BYOD a challenge over the past few
years, expect the bring your own wearable (BYOW) issues to
be much harder to figure out
14. Privacy: There will be increased interest on the part of
consumers to 1) protect the personal data that is being
collected via their own wearables and 2) protect against
unlawful video recording from smartglasses and other
cameras.
15. Ecosystem Partnerships: Traditional IT vendors
accelerate their partnerships with wearable providers, mobile
app developers, global telecom service providers and
