<Smartwatches like the Apple Watch, which compete with the fitness activity tracker market with their slate of expanded apps and communications capabilities, are expected to increase 28% to 13.6 million units, earning $3.7 billion in revenue -- an increase of 22%.>

I think that's overly optimistic. I wouldn think with th emuch cheaper fitness wearable available, Apple watches won't sell that many units.
