"Thanks for posting the comments, do you folks use any of these devices? Do you folks face a similar pain also?"

Puga, not so far. We are not using any similar wearable devices other than hand held devices like smartphones and similar devices.

This is akin to making a waterproof camera by putting a conventional camera in a waterproof housing.  I like things to be simple and this is appears to be an elegant simple solution to ruggedize a cool product.

The proliferation of the new generation of wearables using IOT plaform may become so pervasive even in the industrial and business world , that these age old soltuions from Motorola or honeywell may soon become outdated.

The right combination of mobile Apps along with IoT may give the same functionality of the yesteryear's wearable computers.

"A problem with lack of competition is that there is no pricing pressure on the incumbents. Unlike every other electronics segment where prices have drastically reduced over the years, manufacturers of rugged wearable computers have held their prices."

Puga, that's the issue with monopolistic /duopolistic nature of business. Both of these companies (Motorola & Honeywell) are in tie up for a common cause; fixing the price at higher side. The only way to bring down the price is, pressure from customer side.
