Right behind Apple was Xiaomi, which shipped 3.6 million units of its inexpensive Mi Band 2 for a 21% slice of the pie.With 20% of the market, Fitbit was third, having shipped 3.5 million wearable devices from July through September. Apple, Xiaomi and Fitbit also bucked historical trends by reporting sequential growth for the third quarter. Rounding out the top five was Huawei with a share of 6%, and Samsung with 5% of the market.
Overall, 17.3 million units were shipped during the third quarter, down 2%. Smartphone shipments were strong while basic bands fared poorly.

Just like the iPhone X, the series is an over priced Apple product. The iPhone 7 Plus is enough for 99% of Apple users. Seriously, there’s nothing that the X or the 8 have that’s worth that money. The series 3 is a huge mistake, you don’t need LTE on the watch, you already carry your phone with you all day. It’s not like you can actually do everything on the watch that you would do on a phone. Like I said before, you do need a watch to avoid pulling out the phone every single time, and if you do get the series 2. It’s $280 at BestBuy and will be cheaper on Black Friday.

If Samsung had more App support with Tizen then I would already own a S3 frontier, I'm waiting for Google to launch a pixel watch, maybe then they will get serous about making Android Wear the best it can be, especially in battery life because lets be honest the smart watches with good battery life all use some custom OS that isn't Android Wear.

If Apple is an innovative company the smartphone market is dead. Apple has been a copier not innovator for the last 4 years, just look at the iPhone catch-up edition, sorry the X for proof!

Because most android wanted to get the latest feature as this is the only way they can attract consumers. Apple doesn’t need to, they have the best ecosystem and loyal customers. They have the best after support service.

Sjipped means nothing, they can ship 800.000 and have 700,000 still sat in Apple stores waiting to be sold. Apple just loves to tell how many items they have shipped to make the figures seem higher than they actually are.
