Xiaomi outsells Fitbit and Apple to lead wearables market in Q2

Thursday 3 August 2017 | 13:59 CET | News
Just three months after Apple surpassed Fitbit to become the leading global vendor of wearables, Xiaomi has now overtaken both companies after shipping 3.7 million devices in the second quarter. The latest data from Strategy Analytics revealed that wearables shipments reached 21.6 million units in the April to June period, up 8 percent from the year-earlier figure of 20.0 million, driven by strong demand for low-cost fitness bands in China and premium smartwatches in the US.
