Post Apple and Samsung launched their own range of Smartwatches,North American and Europe has seen the highest number of smartwatches  being gobbled up.Significantly  one theory that many of us had predicted is coming true, traditional watched have been loosing out in this battle . Atleast recent data  from kantar media shows that for the three months ending July 2016, 20% of recent smartwatch buyers in the US made a purchase to replace a classic timepiece, rising to 30% in European Union

According to Kanta Media  data for q2,2016  shows that 15.2% of US consumers own either a smartwatch or fitness band, with the EU following behind at 8.1% penetration.
Within the smartwatch category only, excluding fitness bands, adoption remains low with 4.7% ownership in the US and 3.2% in EU.Apple dominated this segment with a 33.5% share, although that lead shrank slightly in the last three months as the market awaited the Apple Watch Series 
The EU4 countries show a similar trend to that of the US, with 38.6% of all sales coming in the smartwatch category, with Apple leading at 31.8%. Europe's big four markets include Great Britain, Germany, France, and Italy.


However shipments of smartwatches are likely to soar to double digits. Also coupled with the fact is that wearble's are sitting on a huge cash pile.  ready to witness a massive adoption. Recent Businessinsider estimates smartwatch shipments will rise by a compound annual rate of 41% over the next five years. Smartwatches will account for 59% of total wearable device shipments this year, and that share will expand to just over 70% of  the $126million shipments by 2019.

the great american vacation : why 77% americans cant relax during vacations

Infographic: Americans Struggle To Escape The Office On Vacation  | Statista

This finding will only re-establish what most  Americans already knew about themselves  and the truth about their annual vacations.

A recent survey by  travel aggregator site TripAdvisor shows that when it comes to taking vacations or holidays , an average American struggles not to work or keep in touch with their  bosses.

While  77% employed U.S. respondents admitted they had worked on vacation over the past year compared to just 40 percent in the other nations polled - Australia, Brazil, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, Spain and the UK

The numbers  are an indication in themselves why we are one of the most over worked, overstressed nation with the lowest amount of vacation time.  Not to be outdone modern technology and our prized gadgets  have  reduced us into a virtual reality transponders  where irrespective where you might be found physically, we are just  one click away from out office spaces. Clearly we are working hard but not playing hard enough
