Apple Watch 2015 Smartwatch Market Share was over 50%

Apple Watch is still the leader in the smartphone industry, again confirmed by an research firm.

The first generation Apple Watch was released in April 2015 and it was an absolute hit. As per the recent report by Juniper Research, the watch constituted more than 50% of the overall Smartwatch shipments around the world, last year.

The same report also mentioned that the sales of Samsung Gear S2 weren’t as smooth as the sales of the Apple Watch.

The Tizen powered Gear S2 by South Korean giant Samsung was launched in the month of November.

The watch was definitely liked by users around the world, but it didn’t succeed much in front of the Apple Watch.

The report also stated that all the Android powered Smartwatches constituted about less than 10% market share from shipments in 2015.

The Smartwatch market is somewhat in its initial stages and simple, cheap watches are being produced more than the expensive ones.

The report by Juniper also noted that the companies like Razer and Martian are also faring well in the Smartwatch world and sales are good for both companies too.

James Moar, author of the relevant report stated that the Smartwatch has become a proper category of sales for the market, now.

He also said that the newer devices are coming with more furnished looks and slightly different functions, but no big changes are being made in device capabilities or usage.

“It is now up to consumers to decide if they want them, rather than technology companies providing more reasons."
