By: Ramon T. LlamasResearch Director, Mobile Devices and AR/VR

Abstract

This IDC study presents the five-year forecast for smartwatches shipments in the United States.

"The U.S. smartwatch market is taking slow but steady steps forward," says Ramon T. Llamas, research director for IDC's Wearables team. "The smartwatches we see today are several strong steps ahead of the ones we saw as recently as 2015, with greater functionality, style, and affordability. And as the experience improves with cellular connectivity, deeper health and fitness features, and a slowly growing third-party application ecosystem, the smartwatch will find greater reception among end users."
