Wearable devices like Google Glass, Galaxy Gear smartwatches, and Fitbit wristbands are still mostly niche products, but there's a palpable sense that the wearables market -- combined with the Internet of Things -- is about to explode.

While most current wearable users are consumers or tech enthusiasts, big opportunities lurk within the enterprise for wearables to improve worker safety, productivity, and customer engagement. Still, InformationWeek readers remain divided, with many wondering how the new flood of data brought on by wearables will be managed and secured, and whether activity tracking devices violate personal privacy.

In this episode of InformationWeek Radio, J.P. Gownder, a VP and senior analyst at Forrester Research, will join InformationWeek Managing Editor Shane O'Neill to discuss game-changing wearables scenarios in retail, healthcare, and other industries and also delve into the privacy and security concerns about this new wave of mobile technology.
