Wearables Help Drive Digital Transformation

Wearables are making a comeback.

The number of wearable devices sold worldwide grew 31.4 percent year over year to 59.3 million units in the fourth quarter of 2018, marking an all-time high, according to research firm IDC.

Ear-worn devices like Apple's AirPods were the largest contributor to the market's big growth spurt as more smartphones come bundled with such devices.

"The market for ear-worn wearables has grown substantially this past year and we expect this to continue in the years to come," IDC researcher Jitesh Ubrani said in a statement.

According to researcher Ramon T. Llamas, adoption among enterprises and health-care organizations is playing a big role in the wearable market’s growth.

"Wearables stand to play an important role in digital health, constantly collecting important patient data while also giving patients the ability to self-monitor," Llamas said in a statement. "Within the enterprise, wearables can help to accelerate companies' digital transformation by transmitting information back and forth while allowing workers to complete their tasks faster. This is where both vendors and companies can streamline processes to achieve faster results."
