The Evolution of the Smartwatch Continues Before Our Very Eyes... and WristsAccording to a recent report from mGamingWatch, there’s a new wrinkle in the smart watch on your wrist: gaming.

“Mobile gaming is certainly one of the most prominent features of the contemporary market,” notes NetNewsLedger (NNL) in a recent post. “The remote gaming sector will soon be worth in excess of $182.8 billion … and much of this revenue is driven by mobile casino gambling and virtual slot machines.”

More than a few designers and developers are now getting in on the action, developing mobile gaming options for the smart watches and wearables now flooding the market.

“If you have already purchased an Android Wear smart watch (or a similar example of wearable technology such as the Microsoft Band), you are unlikely to have been inspired by its potential as a gaming platform,” says NNL. “This is beginning to change, however, thanks to a select number of innovative developers who have developed games that are compatible with the small and compact display. This has opened the door to the ultimate in cross-platform gaming, as a growing number of titles can be shared with a smart watch device and enjoyed while on the move.”

It was an inevitable development. The smart watch gaming sector can only grow. Industry insiders predict a soon-to-be-launched compendium of games designed to work across multiple platforms.

So, it’s “game on” … in the handiest kind of way.
