It wasn't long ago when smart glasses were reportedly poised to dominate the wearables market, but eventually lost out to fitness trackers and smartwatches. However, it looks like smart glasses could help propel the wearables market, especially in the workplace, analysts predict.
Manufacturers want to see wearables, including smart glasses, find their way into the office in multiple sectors - with third-party developers stepping up to create enterprise apps to increase worker productivity.
"Just as mobile phones proliferated across enterprises and ultimately spurred the mobile revolution, I believe wearables will follow a similar trajectory," said Michael Morgenstern, analyst at OpenView Venture Partners, in a post on Venture Beat. "The difference is the revolution will start from the bottom up."
It's going to take a clever sales and marketing strategy for wearable manufacturers to attract companies - though with higher price tags and more lucrative sales opportunities - could be a great chance for wearables to accelerate.
