IDC is one of the most prominent market researchers and the organization has turned its attention to the Canadian market and is looking forward to 2015. While Canada is not necessarily a hot bed for tech activity, the data for the country seems to point to a similar worldwide trend that will happen in the coming 12 months. IDC says that wearable sales will increase sharply on the back of the Apple Watch, something that is widely predicted on a global scale.

The researcher says that wearable sales will increase by 70% in Canada next year, with imported units of the Apple Watch driving that increase. As many as 1.2 million wearable devices could ship during the year and the majority of those sales will be from Cupertino's first ever smartwatch. Of course, the Apple Watch will have to become available first, with a February launch date now expected.

3% of people in the country own a smartwatch according to data from Nielsen, and more than half of them are willing to buy another wearable in 2015.
