Wearables are everywhere, but are they part of BYOD?


The short answer currently to the question is "No". The longer answer is "Maybe". The super, crystal ball, future answer is "Probably". The reason that wearables are not currently part of BYOD is that they simply are too simple. The only connectivity they have now is to an app or apps on a mobile device via Bluetooth. But the future, both near and long term, for more connected wearables is on the way. This post examines wearables as business devices, especially for BYOD applications.

IDC predicted that the worldwide wearables market would grow by 173.3% in 2015 with 72.1 million units to be shipped. If its prediction is correct, by 2019, there will be more than 155 million units shipping. Mobile device management (MDM) software vendors will have to respond quickly as soon as wearables become an integral part of business as usual. By quickly, I mean that the MDM software will have to support these devices as soon as the first ones attach to a network.
