Accessibility Is King for Enterprise Smartwatch Users

Don’t believe the benefits of wearables? Just watch.

At the recent Enterprise Wearable Technology Summit, I spoke with Wonjin Kim, Samsung’s director of B2B wearable product marketing, about what makes smartwatches — like the Gear S3 — help businesses run efficiently.

According to Kim, accessibility to information is king.

“Instead of having to take a smartphone or tablet out of their pocket, [employees] have a smartwatch on their wrist to access information in real-time,” he says.

While Kim acknowledges that not all tasks can be completed via smartwatch, it’s still a great productivity tool for today’s mobile workforce. “You don’t want to write an email on a smartwatch,” he jokes, “[but] the smartwatch can be a great device for getting critical notifications and making simple acknowledgments.”
