Take it to the bank -- the smartwatch space is set to absolutely explode.

True, Samsung's recently revealed Galaxy Gear left many investors wanting, but the space is still worth watching. And, any time we see a budding tech market, it always begs asking the question, who could the emerging leaders be? At least in the hopes of answering that question for smartwatch semiconductors, tech giant Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) recently made headlines by touting its new Quark line of chips at its developer conference. Indeed, this chip could be the future standard in this new growth market, with billions of potential sales for a company in dire need of a growth driver. So, is this the win Intel investors have been holding their breath for? In this video, tech and telecom analyst Andrew Tonner looks at the Quark, and whether investors should be buying on this potentially game-changing news.
