According to the recent estimate of Strategy Analytics, 28.1 million smartwatches will be shipped in the current year. The number is 25 million, according to Statista Analysis. The figures are quite optimistic considering the age of the product.
Ha Joon-doo, IT analysis of Shinhan Securities of South Korea, said, “In my opinion this number for 2015 will be less than 20 million for the year. It also depends on whether you include health wrist bands in with your smartwatch figure.”
While Apple already has its share of fortune in the market, companies such as LG and Pebble are making the cut. LG recently added WebOS to its collection while Pebble Steel is also making noise.
Samsung currently is one of the highest device makers in the market and with Samsung Galaxy S6 making its mark, the company is on a high. With the introduction of Samsung Gear S2, the company is about to become a solid player in the smartwatch market.
