The Marketplace Is Rejecting Wearable Technology

The marketplace is rejecting wearable technology. Wearable technology like Google glass, smartwatches, and other like devices are not taking over the marketplace. Google glasses are too expensive and the technology is in its beginning stages. Smartwatches are expensive, hard to read and the battery life is terrible. So what are we to make of all this? It may be that people in general are getting fed up with technology that is trying to replace what’s been around a long time. For instance, we see pictures of Ben Franklin with spectacles and watches have been around a long time. I think trying to replace items like this are a waste of time. Beware of the hype. The reality is there is a limit to what we the consumer want. What do you think?
