Many More Smart Watches Expected at 2015 CESJune 13, 2014
The physical space dedicated to smart watches "will more than double in size" at next year's International CES, the organizers said Thursday. The show will bring back its Smart Watch Marketplace, featuring numerous technologies unseen at this year's event.
“There is an overwhelming demand for wearable technology in the marketplace right now and smart watches are quickly becoming the accessory to have,” Karen Chupka, senior vice president, International CES and Corporate Business Strategy, CEA, said as part of the announcement.
“The huge increase in size and scope of our Smart Watch Marketplace shows the growth potential for this category as smart watches become both fashionable and mainstream, with new capabilities and functions set to debut at the 2015 CES.”
The smart watch area is one of 20 category-specific Marketplaces coming to this year's CES .
