According to estimates of the analytical company Canalys, in the second quarter of this year, the producers put on the world market of about 10 million smart watches. In comparison with last year, shipments have doubled.
According to analysts, the largest supplier of smart watches is still Apple. In the second quarter, it shipped about 3.5 million of the Apple Watch, having improved its last year’s result by 30%.
It is noteworthy that in some Asian markets, the biggest user interest is Apple Watch support LTE. In Asia this model accounted for about 60% of all deliveries. In General, such situation is not surprising. Analysts had talked about a fairly high demand for the Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE.
However, despite the fact that Apple was able to retain the title as the largest vendor of smart watches, in comparison with last year the market share of Apple fell from 43% to 34%. Analysts attribute this to the appearance in the sale of a large variety of clocks from competing companies.
According to experts, in the near future the pressure on Apple from competitors will only intensify. Particularly strong it can be after your smart watch will show Samsung and Google.
