We have evolved! WearablesArena is now ConnectedArena. Less than a year back, when we started with WearablesArena, the focus was very much on the next big thing in technology – Wearables. But the truth is, there’s so much more to it, than just smartwatches and fitness trackers. Wearables is a small part of the big bad world of Connected Devices. Call them Internet of Things or Internet of Everything, in the next few years, virtually everything in our home will be connected to the internet. In the near future, over 99% of everything we use will connect to the internet. Whoa!
So we thought why stop at Wearables? We got to dive in and get our hands dirty with anything and everything in this ‘Connected’ world. Of course, the wearables will continue to drive the chariot, being the most likely candidate to go mainstream first (Apple Watch is here you see!)
We did have a category for IoT and managed to cover quite a few interesting products along the way. But with ConnectedArena, the focus will not be restricted to Wearables. As per a report by the popular research firm, Gartner, there will be more than 20 BILLION connected devices by 2020. By the same time PCs, tablets and smartphones together are expected to hit 7.3 billion units, which is like 1/3rd of the number of connected devices. That’s a huge number and we believe ConnectedArena will be there to cover them all for you.
