Wearable Usage Will Grow by Nearly 60% This Year

Almost two in five internet users will use wearables by 2019

New York, NY (October 28, 2015) — The next several years will continue to see double-digit growth in the number of Americans using wearable devices, according to eMarketer’s first wearables forecast. In 2015, 39.5 million US adults 18 and over will use wearables, including smartwatches and fitness trackers. That’s a jump of 57.7% over 2014. While penetration among US adults is just 16.0% this year, eMarketer expects that to double by 2018, to 81.7 million users.
