It has been said that Apple are not always first to market with technology but recent products, particularly the iPhone and iPad have been massive hits and leaders in the market for smartphones and tablets. So with the announcement yesterday of the iWatch will that be the product to change the market for wearable tech and lead to an explosion in sales in the sector?

Reading this article in The Drum it seems that wearable tech is not going to be massive in the near future with only 8% of consumers intending to buy a product this year – maybe Apple will change this. At least Motorola have already said that they welcome Apple entering the market as they think it will grow it overall.

What do you think? Have you already bought a smart watch or do you intend to buy one soon?
