Quarter of Dutch consumers expect to buy smartwatch in next year

Thursday 10 October 2013 | 12:00 CET | Author: Sanne de Bruyckere, Tine Niezink | Background
The Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch launched at the end of September in the Netherlands, and other companies such as Nissan and Qualcomm are preparing to launch their own wearable mobile devices. While smartwatches have been on the market already for some time - Sony claims to have launched the first in early 2012 - they are now starting to attract more attention. As a result Telecompaper asked 2,100 Dutch consumers in August whether they expect to buy a smartwatch in the next year. Around a quarter answered yes, with men more interested in the new product than women.
