According to the survey, 232 million wearable devices would be delivered in 2021, up from 193 million in 2020. Apple was remained the major winner, with shipments up 19% in 2021 compared to 2020. However, as competitors catch up, its market share is dwindling, according to CCS Insight, which attributes this to rising interest among Android smartphone consumers.
With Wear OS 3.0 on the horizon, as well as the possibility of a Google Pixel Watch, that tendency might intensify in 2022.
Huawei, too, was a significant winner. With the launch of the Huawei Watch 3 and Watch GT 3, it increased smartwatch shipments by 19% and its whole wearables base by over 40%. In 2021, Samsung experienced an 18 percent increase in wearables, thanks to the Galaxy Watch 4.
Despite the debut of the Charge 5, Fitbit (technically Google) witnessed a drop in shipments, with an 8 percent drop across smartwatches and fitness trackers. After a calm 2021, Zepp Health likewise had a sharp dip in shipments, dropping by 18%. The findings of the 2021 Wearables Report aren't particularly startling, but they do highlight trends like the rise of low-cost smartwatches and the enormous potential of the Android market. And it's evident that the wearables sector isn't slowing off any time soon.
