Demand for iWatch devices matches pre-iPad launch levels

iwatchAs interest in wearable technology begins to peak, MacRumors is reporting the results of a ChangeWave consumer survey that shows consumer sentiment is nearing the same levels as tablets just before the launch of the original iPad.

In April 2010, 14% of consumers surveyed were ‘somewhat likely’ to consider purchasing a tablet with 4% ‘very likely’. Compared with the up-coming Apple iWatch, the same percentage of consumers were ‘somewhat likely’ to consider the device with 5% ‘very likely’.

Interest in wearable technology has grown on the back of news that Google’s Glass device has now begun shipping to ‘early explorers’. Despite the $1500 cost, demand for Glass is far exceeding supply as Google works with its manufacturing partners to iron out the production process for the new class of computing device.
