Nearly 32 million smart watches were sold this year


Currently, the most popular wearable devices are some basic smart bracelets such as the Millet Bracelet and Fitbit Charge. But IDC pointed out that such products will maintain a low one-digit gain over the next four years.

By contrast, smartwatches (basic watches and smartwatches) will become mainstream, with shipments reaching 195.5 million by 2021, compared with 61.5 million this year. This is mainly due to more vendors and more features (such as cellular networks) to join.

By category, the basic smart bracelet shipments this year is estimated at 45 million, accounting for 39.8% of the overall wearable device market. The 2021 shipments will reach 47.7 million, accounting for 21.5% of the overall wearable device market.

This year’s shipments of basic watches are estimated at 29.9 million units, accounting for 26.4% of the total wearables market. The 2021 shipments will reach 78 million units, accounting for 35.1% of the overall wearable device market.

Full-featured smartwatch shipments this year is estimated at 31.6 million units, accounting for 27.9% of the overall wearable device market. The 2021 shipments will reach 71.5 million, accounting for 32.1% of the overall wearable device market.
