Survey Reveals Users Plan to Spend More on Wearable Computers

2/28/2003 - Users and evaluators of mobile computing and communications solutions know a lot about wearable computing solutions. They like what they know and are planning to spend more on these systems during the next three years. However, larger future commitments to wearable computing will require modification to current solutions and supplier strategy.

The VDC Study, titled: "The Global Market for Wearable Computers: The Quest for Killer Applications", produced a survey with more than 500 respondents.

According to Tim Shea, the Project Manager of the study, "Evaluators and users were able to clearly articulate performance and price requirements for wearable computing solutions. In addition, many had developed specific benefits expectations for their most important applications. This helped the study team establish a solid set of product and vendor selection criteria in many vertical markets and application clusters."
