4-Middle Child -Will Samsung Smart Watches Also Be Sandwiched Between Xiaomi And Apple?
Apple is targeting the premium wearable watch market using the design of its model as the weapon. As a fashion item, not just an IT device, the model sets itself apart by offering different kinds of bands and cases to attract consumers. The U.S. handset maker has also built an ecosystem of 3,500 apps just one month after its release of the model. Research firm Strategy Analytics predicted that the Apple Watch would account for 54.8 percent of the global smart watch market this year, outselling Samsung’s Galaxy Gear series and nabbing the top spot as a result.
As Apple is consolidating its position in the premium market, Xiaomi is also enjoying tremendous popularity in the low-priced market. According to market research firm IDC, the Chinese company, which rolled out the Mi Band the previous summer, occupied the runner-up position in the global wearable device market in the first quarter of this year. Fitbit was in the top spot, and Samsung in fourth place. Xiaomi made up 24.6 percent of the total, becoming the world’s second-largest wearable device maker after its first appearance in the market in 2014. Taking advantage of the momentum, total shipments of the Mi Band exceeded 6 million units as of June 10.
