The wearables market is still growing, but could end up being a major emerging technology - especially in workplaces, as businesses embrace them for employees. A third of companies in Europe plan to roll out some form of wearable technology in 2015, according to a survey from IT and systems monitoring company Ipswitch.




The French (34 percent) and German (33 percent) governments should lead wearable adoption, ahead of the UK (25 percent) and other European Union countries. Even if companies don't provide wearable products to employees, many of them - led by the Apple Watch - can benefit from increased demand.


Analysts are still unsure what to make of the wearable market for consumers and business employees, only simply saying that it will see tremendous growth over the next few years.
