Hybrid watches forecast to take over half of smartwatch market by 2022

Tuesday 16 January 2018 | 13:01 CET | News
Fashion may be more important than function when it comes to smartwatches. A new report by Juniper Research found that hybrid smartwatches such as the Fossil Q and Nokia Steel, which appear to be analogue watches but integrate some smartwatch functionality, will make up over 50 percent of the smartwatches market in 2022. This means that nearly 80 million hybrid smartwatches will be shipped by 2022, up 460 percent from an estimated 14 million in 2017. Digital display smartwatches, such as the Apple Watch and Fitbit Ionic, will increase by a more conservative 160 percent.
