Sports-related wearable technology is a collection of diverse items intended to aid and support users. These wearable gadgets were created to assist athletes through technology. These wearable devices use IoT, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi technology to offer data on an individual’s overall performance. They aid athletes in measuring important health indicators including heart rate and stamina. These wearable gadgets have GPS trackers that collect data on the user’s pace, heart rate, number of steps taken, number of calories burned, and other things. These tools sustain the user’s training-related physical activity and guard against overtraining. These gadgets also monitor sleeping patterns and exercise routines.
“Rapidly increasing demands, a rise in industrialization, consumer awareness, growing sectors, and technical improvements are fueling the expansion of the global Wearable Devices in the Sports market.”
Consumer awareness as a factor for the increased demand for wearable sports devices is super interesting to me. The article mentions opportunities for key players to be wearables that are health conscious. “Technology advancements like the smart watch, fitness tracker, and Bluetooth-enabled camera have opened up new business expansion opportunities.”
The article goes into detail about some restraints and challenges in the wearables market. I was able to understand challenges like low battery life, high initial costs, product approvals, product launches and market size. Although I found it hard to grasp some of the restraints and challenges mentioned (ex: import-export analysis, analyses opportunities in terms of emerging revenue pockets, and application niches and dominance), it is still good to be aware of these things so I can find out what they mean at a later date.
The following is another are of the article I found that could be useful to my research.
