Smartwatches are one of latest and most advanced developed technology, I personally like it most than any other device or tool as it quite handy and you can’t feel any burden up on you or your pocket will not be loaded heavily. Android wears, the second name of smartwatch when it first came out but now the scene is dramatically changing as Samsung’s Tizen gains more popularity than Google’s Android Wears in smartwatch OS market share.
From latest report by Strategy analytics Google’s Android wear didn’t work well as compare to Samsung’s Tizen during the 1st Quarter earning report of 2017. For the first in Smartwatches market Samsung’s Tizen shares 19% out of the total, on the other hand Google’s Android wear was able to make only 18% of the revenue in Smartwatch market share. The news shocked industry experts as they were not expecting such a high share from Samsung’s Tizen and also it runs well pulling Google’s Android wear behind.
According to The Verge, report says;
Global smartwatch shipments at 6.2 million units in Q1 2017 were up 48% YoY. Apple’s watchOS maintained the top spot with 57% market share. Tizen with 19% share took second place from Android Wear this quarter for the first time since Q4 2015. Android Wear vendors together accounted 18% share and took the #3 rank.
As from above report you can see that Apple’s watchOS still ruling the smartwatch kingdom with 57% of unbeatable market share. Following it Samsung’s Tizen surprisingly took second position with 19% pulling Android Wear back to 3rd with 18%.
The report was shocking and surprising in many ways, firstly Samsung’s Tizen do not offer as much choice to users as offered by Android wear despite of that it fails to achieve the expected share. We all know that Android wear stands among best smartwatches but it has to look back on whats not right.
The war of wearables just not ended now as Android wear watches are coming with Android wear 2.0, may be after a month or two. This can prove to be a game changer in Wearable market.
I think its enough from my side, add some words from your side in the comment box below, we will response soon.
