Wearable technology may not have had a “ubiquitous” influence as yet, but the long term prospect does seem exciting, and holds promises of a brighter future for the wearable devices and gadgets. From the much awaited “Google Glass” to the newly launched Samsung smart-watch, the industry is abuzz with new products and seems on the right track to emerge as a winning technology in the coming years. Players, both big and small, all across the value chain, are battling it out to seize the opportunity and grab a pie in the market. In this article, we attempt to identify the challenges and discuss the future roadmap of the industry.

The major technological barrier that the wearable technology faces is the power and performance of the computing components that go into it. Usually, the main issue revolves around the size, as tiny computing devices essentially need very small computing chips. In recent past, there have been some remarkable developments at the chip-level; and that has, in turn, heated up the processor-war among leading players such as Intel, ARM, and Qualcomm.
