Global wearable device shipments grew 85.2 percent in the second quarter as shipments totaled 67.7 million units, according to data from the International Data Corporation (IDC). Earworn devices (hearables) were among the fastest growing categories, capturing 46.9 percent of the overall wearables market during the quarter, up from 24.8 percent a year ago. Driving that growth was a slew of new products and consumers who purchased their second wearable, a hearable, to use in parallel with existing watches or wrist bands.
