Report: 90 million wearables to be sold in 2014, even more in 2015
ABI Research also claims that the increased diversity of hardware vendors will allow even fledgling and underdeveloped manufacturers to release their own wearable gadgets and compete with the major players in the industry. The research company claims that smart watches and glasses won't be a big hit on the market – however, it is expected that more than 2 million smart glasses will be sold in 2014 and the demand for such wearable devices will increase in 2015.

Hmmm...... I believe the part about selling more in 2015. The rest is just headline grabbing guess. There is no market for these to analyze yet. Silly to claim numbers in the future for one.
