Smartwatches and smartband is a pretty new technology, not all with smartphones are eager to have one or some don’t even know that a device like this exists. The adoption of wearables specifically smartwatches is very slow, only 4.2 percent of consumers in US and 3.8 percent in Europe have a smartwatches, in Asia it is even pretty low.
Here in the Philippines, I guess it is the same story, but of course this could change soon, Filipinos are techies, its a country of more than 100 million tech-savvy Filipinos. It’s no wonder why it’s the texting capital of the world, it is also included in the top 10, with the number of users in Facebook. Wearables adoption in the Philippines is slow, but I’m pretty sure, tech savvy Pinoy’s will soon have the smartwatch included in the list of tech device must have. Strolling in Malls, every now and then you could spot some Pinoy’s using a smartwatch instead of a traditional watch. With this, you can see that this piece of technology is getting appreciated, yes it’s slow but we its getting there.
