Apple still has the smartest watch with the largest number of units distributed worldwide, according to a Strategy Analytics report for the first quarter of 2020, during which a total of 13.7 million smart watches were distributed.
Apple, individually, closed the first quarter with 7.6 million distributed units, up 22.6 percent from 2019. Strategy Analytics says this growth is the highest in two years, and highlights Apple’s market share, which closed at 55.5 percent in the first quarter of 2020.
“The Apple Watch continues to be protected from fierce competition from hungry competitors such as Garmin and Samsung,” said Neal Muston, chief executive of Strategy Analytics, in a statement. “Apple Watch controls half of the global smartwatch market and remains the clear industry leader.”
The Strategy Analytics report confirms Apple data for the second fiscal quarter, which covers the period from January to March. Apple said in a report that its “wearable, home and accessories” category rose to $ 6.284 million for the quarter, compared with $ 5.129 million in sales for the same period last year. The category also covers other products such as AirPods, but proves that the Apple Watch has helped increase these numbers.

Samsung, which still ranks first in the handset market, still has plenty of room for smartwatch growth rafiqsonsonline.com/product-category/smart-watches/. The South Korean company closed the first quarter with 1, 9 million distributed units, which brought it control of 13, 9% of the market. According to Strategy Analytics, Garmin , a manufacturer that focused more on smart watches with fitness features, spent a good quarter with 1, 1 million units distributed over this period and controlled 8 percent of the market.
“Despite the problems caused by COVID-19, the demand for smart watches continued to grow,” Mouston added. “Smart watches sell well through online channels, and many consumers buy these products to monitor their activity and health during closing hours.
