By David Nagel, Campus Technology

Wearables are not just for gadget enthusiasts and early adopters anymore. They’ve gone mass-market. More than 71 million wearables were shipped in the last year, according to a new report from market research firm IDC. According to information released in IDC’s latest Worldwide Quarterly Wearable Device Tracker, 78.1 million wearables shipped in 2015, with more than a third — 27.4 million — shipping in the fourth quarter alone. Fourth quarter 2015’s shipments represented a 127 percent increase over shipments in the same period the previous year.
