Gartner Expects Big Wearable Electronics Push at CES 2014

Gartner has offered up some predictions for what we will see at CES 2014. One of the big categories that the research firm predicts is wearable computing products. Gartner says that wearable computing will be one of the biggest categories and will take up about 40% of the space at the show.

Gartner expects to see new wearable cameras, smart glasses, smart watches, and headsets. Smart watches are expected from established vendors and new start-ups. Gartner says that an unclear value proposition will send most wearable electronics purchases to wearable fitness devices for the time being.

Wearable cameras allowing hands free photography and video are expected. Smart glasses featuring augmented reality and virtual reality will be big segments too. Gartner says, "Smart watches from large consumer brand companies, such as the Samsung Galaxy Gear, Sony Smartwatch 2, and from start-ups, will show their new products, some of which will be available now and others for pre-orders. We will see a range of styles and functionality for smart watches as companies experiment with designs that appeal to different potential market segments. However, an unclear value proposition will continue to steer consumers' spending toward tablets and wearable fitness device in the near term."
