Smartwatches are devices worn around the wrist that feature a vast array of functions, aside from time-telling.

Additionally, they can connect via Bluetooth to a smartphone and perform a number of actions, like GPS navigation or video-calling. According to forecasts, almost 25 million smartwatches will be sold in 2015 worldwide, 7.4 million units in North America alone. The revenue of smartwatch sales is predicted to reach 3.1 billion U.S. dollars in the United States in 2015.

As of 2015, the leader of the smartwatch market is Samsung. Other important players are Pebble, Fitbit, Sony, Lenovo and LG. With the introduction of the Apple Watch at the beginning of 2015, Apple is expected to also become a strong competitor in the near future. A total of 89 companies debuted smart watches in 2014 and many more are expected to bring smartwatches to the market in 2015.
