Worldwide smartwatch shipments grew an amazing 42 percent every year, Strategy Analytics said.Continuing its lead over rivals like Samsung and Fitbit, Apple Watch kept up first position as its offer in the worldwide smartwatch showcase arrived at 48 percent in the second from last quarter of this current year from 45 percent in a similar quarter a year ago, as indicated by a report by statistical surveying firm Strategy Analytics.
Worldwide smartwatch shipments grew an amazing 42 percent every year to arrive at 14 million units in the second from last quarter of 2019, said the report.
“Apple delivered 6.8 million smartwatches worldwide in Q3 2019, transcending normal 51 percent from 4.5 million in Q3 2018,” Neil Mawston, Executive Director at Strategy Analytics, said in an announcement.
“Apple Watch keeps on fighting off solid challenge from hungry adversaries like Fitbit and Samsung. Apple Watch possesses a large portion of the overall smartwatch market and remains the unmistakable business pioneer,” Mawston included.
Samsung held second spot in the smartwatch showcase as its offer bounced from 11 percent to 13 percent during the previous year.
The piece of the overall industry for Fitbit, which clung on to third position, tumbled to 11 percent this quarter, down from 15 percent a year back.
“Samsung sent 1.9 million smartwatches worldwide in Q3 2019, nearly multiplying from 1.1 million every year back. Samsung’s worldwide smartwatch piece of the pie has hopped from 11 percent to 13 percent during the previous year,” said Steven Waltzer, Senior Analyst at Strategy Analytics.
Samsung’s new models, for example, Galaxy Watch Active 2, should empower the South Korean tech goliath to improve its worldwide smartwatch nearness in Q4, Waltzer said.
Fitbit, which not long ago went into a consent to be procured by Google, delivered 1.6 million smartwatches worldwide in Q3 2019.
“Fitbit keeps on failing to meet expectations the smartwatch business normal. Fitbit has attempted to contend with Apple Watch at the higher finish of the smartwatch advertise, while its most recent Versa Lite model has attempted to energize customers at the lower end,” Mawston said.
“Fitbit’s ongoing takeover by Google will be an alleviation to the organization, as Fitbit is under rising focused weight from Apple, Samsung, Garmin, Huawei, Xiaomi, and others.
“The central issue presently on everybody’s lips is the thing that Google intends to do with Fitbit, and whether Google will extend or get Fitbit’s renowned equipment, working framework, and medicinal services, game and wellness administrations,” Mawston included.
