Samsung has shown tremendous growth in the wearable market for the first quarter of this year. The IDC has been released new data, and it shows huge changes in the wearable segment. Though Samsung is growing fast, Apple is still unbeatable with most of the wearable market shares. In the first Q1 2021, Samsung has sold 11.8 million wearable devices in three months. It is good growth compared to Q1 2021, where the company has sold 8.7 million devices. Apple has sold 30.1 million wearables with a market share of 28.8%.
For Samsung, its recent wearables came to help and achieve such a milestone. In the last year, the company has launched Galaxy Fit 2, Galaxy Buds Pro, Galaxy Watch 3 & Galaxy Buds Live. The Galaxy Watch 3 comes with lots of forward-looking functions like ECG, BP, VO2 max, fall detection, and SpO2. Another factor in the sales boost is the cheap price of the Galaxy Fit 2 tracker. Samsung has slashed 60% price of the Fit 2 compared to the original Fit. It gave tough competition to the Mi Band 6, Honor Band 6 & Huawei Band 6.
Xiaomi has slipped down to the third rank with 10.2 million unit sales and 9.7% market shares. Thanks to the Mi Band 5 & Mi Band 6, the Chinese company has achieved this milestone. Surprisingly, Boat is on the fifth spot after Huawei. The most numbers of active users for Boat come from India, and its new Boat Storm & Boat Xplorer are doing well in the country. The European market also shows the same trend where Apple is in the number one spot, Samsung is on second, Xiaomi is in third, Huawei is on fourth, and Huami is in the fifth spot.
