Ubiquitous mobile devices and trends in directions like the Quantified Self and Smart Manufacturing have created an increased interest in wearable electronics. Wearables also provide the critical link to tether people to Internet of Things ecosystems, whether it be the Smart Home, Connected Car, or Smart Factory. However, despite significant hype, investment, the technologies, business models, and a proliferation of new devices, the future of wearables remains unclear. The question still remains of whether wearables will cause disruption like mobile devices or merely be accessories for counting steps?
