Samsung leads smartband market in H1

Friday 22 August 2014 | 02:47 CET | News
The wearable band market increased by 684 percent on a worldwide basis in the first half of 2014 compared with the first half of 2013, according a report from Canalys. The report shows Fitbit and Jawbone have grown and strengthened their relationships with channel partners internationally to grow global shipment volumes. They rank first and second, respectively, in the basic wearable band market in the first half of this year. Nike's market share has declined as it cuts resources in this area, while new entrant Garmin had a successful launch of its vivofit device and is chasing third place.
