4 Ways to Excel Yourself in the Wearable Market in the Year 2020

The wearable market is ever-evolving. Since the time the first Apple Watch made its debut, the sales of wearable technology incredibly skyrocketed and went through the path of continued growth. 

Alone in 2018, more than 172 million devices were shipped. And these numbers just kept on increasing as we moved into the future. It recommended that Wearable technology has quite an impact on the digital stratosphere and is widely getting adopted by some of the major players around the world. With the tech behind these wearables becoming quite common, we are seeing a surge in its use-cases and what not. As the traction grows, we all wonder how one can benefit from this boom? 

Today I am going to discuss 5 ways how entrepreneurs and businesses can leverage the growing market of wearables and extract the best results without experiencing any hassles. 

So without further adieu, let’s check them out. 

Time to Give up on the Smart Watches

One in every 3rd wearable sold in the market is a smartwatch. Why are smartwatches the real deal? That’s because big technology giants like Apple & Google have invested a lot of budget in bringing these smartwatches to the table for businesses around the world. They have invested a great deal of time in optimizing various features of the smartwatch and optimized them to deliver the best user experience to their fan club. Because of their loyalty, the fans have entrusted them with the purchase. 

If you’re planning to invest in wearables, don’t go for the same tactic because the competition is tough. Instead, choose a different approach by going granular. For example, Myia, a health technology company has designed wearables that when worn by the patient can help them monitor heart rate. 

The more specific you get with your invention the better is your chance to score big in the market. 

See What Customers Are Seeking

Right now, we have the pandemic of COVID-19 impacting our lives and the lives of others who surround us. Now, here’s a solid need which can help people gain an extra edge. People are in dire need of solutions that can help them stay safe from the pandemic. Imagine getting a wearable device that helps you identify that a particular area is quarantined. For example, the smartwatch turns red and starts sending alarm beeps when you walk into a particularly sealed area because of the COVID19

Such applications can help people stay safe from getting infected and help customers get through. 

You can think of thousands of other ways to see what customers are seeking & how you can help. 

Create a Wearable that Creates a Sense of Community

Every wearable product right now that’s aggressively being marketed as a perfect community built around its respective gadget. Take almost any kind of smartwatch that you believe holds the potential. 


For example, Fitbit’s has a separate fan following of its own which largely surrounds people from all walks of life. People who are conscious about their health & weight are the most common users of this particular type of wearable and are found aggressively purchasing this product massively. 

Hence, it has the perfect community built around it. 

When you are planning to invest so you can step down in the wearable market, don’t forget to make due investments in cultivating a community around your wearable product. It’s the only way your wearable is going to survive and see the light of success once it is deployed in the market. 

When Crafting Wearables Consider the Children

It’s because wearables become quite the trend among your wearers, which makes it a solid pick for parents and children alike. For example, take the Owlet Smart Sock, here’s a baby monitoring device that can easily wrap around a child’s foot, and whenever the wearer’s heart rhythm changes or oxygen level drops, the Smart Sock beeps an alarm. Now imagine creating a wearable that will allow parents to track feeding patterns, how frequently the child needs to visit the loo or wearable that notifies parents or teachers when a child leaves a specifically defined boundary? 

Imagine the possibilities that you can create with a single wearable. 

Now apply them far and wide across many other platforms to see which can work in your favor.

So there you go, here are some of the best ways I believe wearables can assist you in the market.

Apple Improves Gaming Support with the Launch of the New iOS 14

We recently learned that Apple is working immensely to optimize gaming support for the all-new iOS 14 and compatible devices which will run the new OS on their platform. Apple has revealed a few highlights where it has provided information on full support for controller button remapping, haptics, rumble, motion, and also the ability of the Apple phones to utilize keyboard/mouse for gaming.

Gamers who actively use Apple products have long been asking the Cupertino smartphone giant when they are going to get the rumble and haptic support for Apple gaming experience, and apparently Apple has revealed that it’s finally hitting the market this year. Now, developers will be able to program feedback into Apple games optimized for the new iOS 14 so people can have a better gaming experience, such as getting a recoil after a shot is fired from a gun or vibrant explosions in gameplay. 

At the same time, Apple is also planning to add motion inputs, which will allow users to connect Sony’s DualShock 4 controller to the new iOS 14. With this feature, Apple developers will be able to add a feature for the colour scheme to change when the DualShock controller starts running low on battery. It will also feature a two-finger tracking as well as a full-support for the touchpad’s buttons. 

At the same time, we have also learned that Apple is actively working on adding the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 as well in its upcoming iOS 14, iPad 14, and tvOS updates. With this feature, users will be able to include full support for the four paddle buttons and even offer the button remapping feature. This particular new button remapping feature is globally accepted for all controllers which can be easily optimized and accessed by various apps & games that are hitting the iOS market. These additions are just the highlight as we are also going to see some more solid improvements in the coming time. 

Moreover, we have also learned that Apple is going to allow keyboard and mouse connectivity for iPad. So now, users seeking to have a PC gaming experience on iPad will not have to settle for gamepads & controllers. Although, right now, Apple users can connect a keyboard and mouse to their iPad and have the experience but they won’t be able to strike multiple keys at an instance and this particular support is quite the lackluster. The iPad also comes with a mouse support for current iPad games and provides a wonderful click & feel experience. 

Here’s actually great news for all the fans of first-person shooters because those who play FPS titles greatly rely on precision input. With the full compatibility for keyboard and mouse, fans can now have an ultimate shooting experience on their iPads. 

Also, players can have a full-advantage of full-screen gaming with the new Apple iOS devices.

By the way, luck you because we also have a last minute chunk bar for you. Apple is also working on overhauling the entire Game Center experience by changing the user interface for clients & customers. 

The new UI design of the game space will have a transparent layer on top of games. 

Alongside the game space area, Apple has also worked up on its achievement section of the Game Center. This has transformed the entire look and feel of the app. It is now allowing a more consistent gaming experience for all the iOS, iPadOS, tvOS and macOS fans who are enthusiastic gamers too. 

All of these upgrades indicate that Apple has worked tirelessly to create a really fun and engaging gaming experience for its future users. So whether you’re a fan of iPad, iPhone or some other device, buckle up! Because Apple is about to give a full-length amazing gaming experience to the table for fans around the world.
