As of 2017, the Asia Pacific region fell just under North America with the number of connected wearable devices. Nevertheless, alongside increased levels of consumerism, the share of connected smart devices throughout the Asia Pacific region is set to increase significantly by 2022. Xiaomi, Vuzix Corp, Samsung, Apple and Fitbit are among popular brands in the Asia Pacific region which produce smart wearables. Popularity among smart wearables across Asia Pacific has increased with the progression of the possible functions smart wearables can demonstrate. Interestingly, a vast share of consumers across the Asia Pacific region have sited fitness functions as the biggest factor in using smart wearables. At the same time, others have listed easy accessibility to smartphones as a motivation for purchasing smart wearables.
