$10.5 Billion Mobile Sensing Sports & Fitness Market in 2015

Bluetooth Smart has connected millions of ultra-low power wireless wearable sensors to the Internet and hundreds of millions of sensor infused smartphones are providing app developers with new markets and partners. This opportunity will continue to grow at a staggering pace with shipments of mobile sensing devices that support sports and fitness apps increasing 10X over the next five years.

Dedicated fitness mobile sensing devices currently dominate this market. In 2014, activity trackers outsold general purpose smartwatches four to one. Out of the 5 million smartwatches shipped that support sports and fitness apps almost half were fitness-dedicated activity tracker/smartwatch hybrids.
