North American wearables market unchanged in Q2 amid lower selling prices - study

Monday 7 September 2020 | 09:48 CET | News
The wearables market in North America were worth USD 2 billion in the second quarter, unchanged from the year before despite shipments rising 10 percent to 8.5 million, according to the latest study from Canalys. The flat market is the result of lower average selling prices (ASPs), which decreased by 11 percent to USD 235 due to a boom in low-end activity trackers and 30 percent growth for Apple Watch Series 3. The Apple series was the best-selling smartwatch in North America, matching shipments for last year's Series 4.
