Worldwide wearable band shipments hit 2.7 mln in Q1

Thursday 22 May 2014 | 10:37 CET | News
Around 2.7 million wearable bands shipped worldwide in this year's first quarter, according to a new report from Canalys. The report also shows that Fitbit maintained its leadership position with nearly 50 percent market share. The report divides this market into two categories: basic and smart bands. Fitbit shipped most of the units in the basic band segment, while Jawbone, another basic band competitor, also grew rapidly as it expanded its international distribution after the initial launch of the UP24 in Q4. Nike's share of basic band shipments fell to 10 percent.
