When it came to smartwatches, women would wear it in nearly every fashion category, a new study has found.
A survey of nearly 5,000 people conducted by fashion website Outbrain found that the majority of women aged between 30 and 45 wore a smartwatch to work, but it was the women in their 50s and 60s who were most likely to use it for work.
Outbrain also found that smartwares were popular among women in the workplace.
Among the people surveyed, a whopping 75% of women who work in the healthcare industry said they wear a smart watch at work.
In contrast, just 6% of people working in other fields said they wore a wearable at work and a mere 6% wore one on the job.
“Women who work have access to smart devices,” said Sarah D. Shulman, senior vice president of product at Outbrain.
“The average smartwatch is $500.
There’s a huge range in price and features.
For people who work on the edge of technology, smartwars are a huge opportunity to explore what’s possible.”
Shulmans team also found women’s use of smartwalls was more prevalent among younger generations.
The data, based on data collected by Outbrain from more than 1,300 respondents in 20 countries, was based on questions about wear, the types of watches worn and their location.
The study found that, in general, women prefer smartwearing in more social settings, and they were more likely to do so in public spaces.
But in workplaces, they preferred to wear smartwands indoors.
The most common location was at the office, followed by home or a cubicle, and lastly, at a work meeting or conference.
For the women surveyed, the most popular activity was watching movies or reading magazines.
The survey also found most of them were interested in wearing smartwears in public, and nearly all wore one for personal use.
While most of the women interviewed said they used their smartware to stay on top of the news, social media and email, Shulshmans team found that one-third said they also used their device for watching movies, reading magazines or other activities.
OutBrain found that about 20% of the smartwared respondents said they didn’t wear their smartwatch at all, but they were not alone.
The majority of people surveyed said they were interested only in wearing one device at a time, and that’s probably due to the fact that most people are not wearing a smartphone at work as a main device.
Shoulmans team noted that most smartwear companies do not have a specific date for launching a smartwarp, but that they expect to launch smartwarmatches sometime in 2018.
In the meantime, women who have not yet decided whether to start using a smart wearable or one that doesn’t have a date are probably not in the wrong.
The smartwarers themselves will probably never be able to tell you which watch they prefer, but the data does suggest that they’ll likely be using smartwairs in the future.
