Wearables are a relatively new product group in North America (NA). Since smart watches first entered the market several years ago, the wearables category has branched off into a large number of devices like fit bands, smart clothing, health monitoring devices, and a variety of others. As the group has expanded, so have the number of manufacturers and competitors in the space for both hardware and software.
Frost & Sullivan estimates that the NA wearables market will become a focal point for Tier I NA carriers over the next 6 years. Smart watches will likely integrate cellular connectivity and independent smartphone-like capabilities. Other products like fit bands, Google Glass, and a wide variety of other wearables will be introduced into the market.

Excluding feature phones, of the other devices sold by wireless carriers, Mi-Fi makes up 25.0% of the segment, with home/office products and USB dongles coming in at 12.5% and 8.3% respectively. Auto Wi-Fi makes up the lowest percentage at 6.3%, but this category is expected to increase rapidly as the number of connected automobiles continues to increase.

With the wearables market set to explode over the next 6 years, wireless carriers are looking to capitalize on the opportunity by enhancing their product portfolios to include wearables. This market insight provides an analysis into the Tier I carriers’ wearables and other devices plans, pricing, and purchasing in North America.
