At CES 2021, wearable devices had their usual prominent role, especially those related to healthcare monitoring as a result of COVID-19 and to address changes in consumer habits and lifestyle. New smartwatch launches at CES are not only stylish and more affordable but are technically more advanced to accurately monitor users’ healthcare, which has now become a key feature in the purchase decision process. Aside from smartwatches, other notable launches at the show were the number of true wireless headsets, a market that has been bolstered by the gradual minimization of barriers to entry. This has sparked the entry of a greater number of new players while existing vendors have been busy upgrading their devices and integrating enhanced features, such as active noise cancellation, better battery life, and voice assistants. As both types of device are becoming hardware mature, CES provided an opportunity to prepare the ground for new use cases and content.
