Wow. There are quite a few people talking about yesterday’s Canalys estimate of 720,000 Android Wear shipments in the last six months of 2014. And most of that talk is ridiculous, with little to no perspective on the market itself. All of the doom and gloom I’m reading about Android Wear may yet come to pass, but to base it on shipment data at this point in time is premature for several reasons.
It’s an interesting perspective, and the author certainly makes some good points, but disappointing or no, the real problem for me is still that Android Wear and current smartwatches in general are, simply, shit.
I’ve never based my opinions on popularity, and I don’t intend to start now.
