# Wearable Devices
According to market reports, over 101 million wearable devices were shipped in the year 2016. The growth from was at the rate of 29% from the year 2015. You can only imagine how many have been shipped since! Fueling the demand, Apple and Microsoft came up with their own wearable tech to showcase the upcoming change in computing. This opened up brand new opportunities for app developers. Today, wearable devices come connected with smartphones and this is influencing our mobile app development strategies in a huge way.
You have definitely heard of e-commerce, right? M-commerce is the next obvious trend in mobile purchases. The increasing number of e-wallets is discouraging the Internet users from using their debit or credit cards when making a purchase online.

We think that online wallets coupled with wearable tech will completely change the way people buy and sell online.
