Why Wearables?

The wearables market is clearly the next game-changer in the world of consumer technology. The wearable tech market is set to grow from 21 million shipments in 2014 to 150 million shipments in 2019, according to Piper Jaffray. That represents an incredible 48% compound annual growth rate (CAGR).

Moreover, everything is changing once the technology becomes widely adopted. As the Basis CEO pointed out: “The future of wearables is not simply a transfer of apps from the phone to the wrist, but solving problems or delivering benefits that fundamentally cannot be done any other way.”

Choosing the Right Tech

As the market is still developing, with many players such as Samsung, Nike or Apple competing for the market share, it’s not yet clear who wins the majority. Building an app that works is also a matter of the right platform strategy.

New Design Thinking

Prototyping and design for wearables are more challenging than designing for smartphones. There are smaller screens in constant movement and that requires a totally different design approach.

Quality and Performance

To optimize performance and to ensure an app continues to perform is another challenge. Smartwatches and wearables have a whole different set of interactions and connections that developers need to worry about.

The Opportunity Ahead

The market is growing at an unprecedented rate. According to IDC, the worldwide wearables market grew 223% in Q2 2015 compared to the same period in the last year.

Right now, Apple is driving the growth in worldwide shipments, but the point remains the same: Brands must create wearable specific apps to not only stay competitive but to potentially take their business to an entirely new level.

Let’s begin

  • There's not much humility in their vision: they say openly they want to do what Henry Ford did to cars, or what Rockefeller did for oil. They want Appster to be the ideas development hub of the world.

  • Only the best engineers: "Applying for a job at app-building company Appster, seems a little like applying for a high-security-clearance government job."
