Re: Apple Watch
I imagine one of the top uses for smartwatches will be for fitness/health tracking. It's a no-brainer: people who use advanced devices like this will love tracking their health statistics. These people are data nuts already, so why not start tracking their own data using these devices?

Apple Watch
"Apple may ship as many as 45 million smartwatches by 2019, giving it a slim majority at 51.1%." 

That's quite many smartwatches. Since the IoT will explode by 2020 it makes sense. I have been thinking about getting an Apple Watch for a while. I might just get one next year.
