Prismetric's take on Wearable Apps and IoT Trends in 2016

The leading mobile app development company highlights the top trends in Wearable Apps and Internet of Things that will rule this year
GANDHINAGAR, India - Sept. 5, 2016 - PRLog -- Prismetric Technologies Pvt. Ltd, a company providing customised technology solution to global clients, today unveiled the top trends that will rule the wearable and IoT industry. According to the company, 2016 will be an important year for Wearables and Internet of Things as they will pair together to transform the consumer and enterprise markets with radical growth. The experts shared predictions on how each of these categories will revolutionize in the upcoming months and in the future.

Wearable technology first came into limelight a couple of years back, but it is 2016 that will be a transitional year, says experts at Prismetric. The future of wearable industry, which includes smartwatches, activity trackers, embedded sensors and smartglasses, is fast evolving to reflect modern advancements and latest products available in the market. This year, single-function devices will take a back seat, while wearables with a stack of useful applications will gain prominence. This will bring distinct shift in the market and changes in consumer preferences too.

Talking about their future predictions for wearable apps, Mr. Ashish Parmar, CEO of Prismetric remarks, "2016 and years to come will certainly see few exits from Smartwatch category, unlike what we mostly except. This may be due to acquisition or bankruptcy. The good news is that there will be few new entrants in the activity and fitness band category that will transform the app market. Apps pertaining to activity bands will now deliver more comprehensive information than just calories, sleep and steps. Wearable applications are likely to provider rich analytics for activities like biking, swimming, etc. On the other hand, smartglasses are expected to grow to $6 billion in 2016."

Prismetric also anticipates consumer wearable apps and those related to health programs at work will witness significant growth in years to come. While smartwatches will continue to grow, they will also continue to disappoint consumers as long as there is nothing innovative about it that will hold on to the interests of the people. Moreover, too many people expect them to function as their Smartphones so the extent to which there is innovativeness in the  smartwatches will add to the number of people looking for it. By the end of 2016, smartwatches will reach 25 million consumers globally, predicts expert at Prismetric.

Coming to Internet of Things (IoT), Mr. Ketan Chavda, Director – Prismetric says, "IoT machines are constantly providing access to live data in real time. Bluetooth beaconing and smartglasses are great way to do it, but mostly the applications lack a way to engage users. They miss that 'so what' factor and thus, we consider wearable technology as the missing element to Internet of Things. Everyday tonnes of user data are being collected via wearables but the industry is struggling hard to determine what should be done with this Big Data. This also points out the importance of security and privacy measures that should be in place for users to leverage IoT at its best."

All these factors may cause a setback in wearable app adoption which might delay embracing the IoT among users.
