In new research from the Wearable Device Ecosystems (WDE) service looking at enabling technologies in Smartglasses, WiFi will be an important technology for the category, found in 75% of devices shipping in 2015. The technology will allow smartglass users to upload video they record on the integrated HD camera to YouTube and other social media websites.

Strategy Analytics expects WiFi-enabled smartglasses to experience growth of 240% in 2015, as the market continues to gain traction and as cellular-enabled penetration remains low amongst the segment.

 

This published report, available to clients now, provides global and regional forecasts on the penetration of five key enabling technologies in the smartglasses category (including Augmented Reality, GPS, and WiFi), extending out to 2018.
