Apple leapfrogs Xiaomi, becomes world’s second best-selling wearable brand
A month or two ago, Xiaomi was the second highest brand in terms of wearable sales, only second to Fitbit. Right now, renowned research firm IDC claims that so many Apple Watches have been sold between now and then, helping Apple to leapfrog Xiaomi in the top sellers chart.
US president Barack Obama is seen wearing a $250 Fitbit smartwatch during an interview in March 2015.
Latest statistics released by IDC shows that 3.6 million Apple Watch (the only wearable the iPhone maker is offering) units have been sold this year, a figure which stands much taller when compared with Xiaomi’s 3.1 million shipped Mi Bands.
Fitbit still controls the market, selling as many as 4 million smart wearable devices this year alone, up from the 1.7 million devices the US company sold during the whole of sale year. The global wearable market has grown by 223.2 % from last year.
