According to the chart, a bit more than one out of every three smartwatches/fitness bands that was sold by Best Buy in April was branded with the Samsung name. More specifically, 33.94% of these devices were manufactured by the Korean firm. Best Buy offers a wide assortment of Samsung timepieces including the stand-alone Samsung Gear S, which it sells with an AT&T voice and data plan. It also sells the Samsung Gear Fit, which is a combination of smartwatch and fitness band. The Samsung Gear 2 and the Samsung Gear 2 Neo are both available, as well.
After Samsung, the soon to be public Fibit garnered 20% of Best Buy's wearable sales for the monh. And not that far behind Fitbit was Motorola. The Moto 360 accounted for 17.88% of these sales in April. And we should mention that the Microsoft Band finished fourth with a 12.73% slice of the pie. Rounding out the top five was Pebble. The Kickstarter superstar accounted for 9.39% of the smartwatch and fitness band sales at Best Buy in April.
On a daily basis, Fitbit was a steady performer for the month, while Samsung sold well during the beginning and the end of April.

Sammy has best band without a shadow of a doubt. SuperAmoled screen and 5-6 days of battery life. Those pebbles and fitbits look like utter crap in comparison.

Really? Actually Gear devices can work with any Bluetooth enabled device. They will have limited functions, but that is more than you will get with an Apple Watch. I have the Gear S and I wouldn't trade it unless the devjce is better. With all the poor attempts at making a good device, Apple should have had the best and offer some actual useful features, after watching a very one else for 2 years. They sick and so do most of the others. Samsung is the best with the Gear S offering features no other wearable has.

Just curious, what functionality does the Gear S have over the Apple Watch? As far as I knew they all did about the same thing. The both track fitness, both show notifications, both allow replies, both allow apps for stuff like weather, etc. the only difference really is Android Wear allows custom watch faces (which I think is such a stupid thing for Apple to leave out). Your "that is more than you'll get with an Apple Watch" comment is pretty unfounded.

Gear S uses tizen not wear. Difference is that it can be used as a complete stand alone phone where as the apple watch cannot. Other than that it has a bigger screen so it is much easier to use compared to other smart watches, I can tell ya that from experience.
