Android Wear market share surpassed by Samsung's Tizen, Apple Watch still king of the hill
While Samsung smartwatches are clearly selling better than any Android Wear ones, Apple has more than half of the market for itself with a 57% share for watchOS, exclusive to the Apple Watch. Not bad for a device that left many scratching their heads whether getting it is really worth it. Of course, the Apple Watch is a more than decent smartwatch, and is being marketed the way Apple markets things, so no surprises here.
With several Android Wear 2.0 watches coming from brands like Hugo Boss, Movado, Tommy Hilfiger and Fossil, the platform ought to enjoy renewed interest in the second half of the year. However, Samsung could out a successor to the Gear S3 that looks attractive and could be priced more fairly than these brands' premium products. Although Google enjoy steady growth in activations and app downloads related to Android Wear each year, 2017 won't be easy for its wearable pursuits.
