Better than Google Glass: Finding the Right Smart Glasses for Enterprise

December 23, 2015 | State of the Market Report

Google Glass set the standard in smart glasses, but as the target market has shifted from consumer to industrial, the question became, “Should Google Glass still be the standard?” In this report, we identify and categorize the more than 70 enterprise deployments of smart glasses. Within those 70 deployments, there are 11 unique use cases, which each use a combination of only three core functions: access information, real-time communication, and documentation. In most cases, Google Glass came up short, with smart glasses like Sony SmartEyeglass and ODG R-7 better suited to meet industrial requirements.
