Apple ranks third in the wearables market

Although they are far from reaching the popularity of the iPhone, the Apple segment of the Apple has earned all credentials to enter the list of Fortune 500 - which holds place for those devices that collect more than 5 billion dollars a year - however , This does not make the best seller compared to the competition. According to information released by analyst Canalys, during the second quarter of 2017 Apple Watch has been relegated to third place by FitBit and Xiaomi options.
Thus, it seems that the delay in a new line of smart watches of Californians has taken its toll. In this sense, the launch of the Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE chip is expected to revive interest in this device.

Xiaomi beats Fitbit and Apple in the wearables segment

The analysis done from Canalys includes devices of different prices and the final result has placed Xiaomi as the leader in sales during this quarter, with 3.7 million units, followed by Fitbit with 3.4 million and third place Apple with 2.8 Millions of units shipped.
From this list, Xiaomi is the company that has had a constant growth, attributed to the quality and competitive price of its bracelets. Meanwhile, despite having the second place in this list Fitbit, has lost 12% of the market compared to the same quarter of the previous year. For its part, Apple has achieved a considerable increase compared to 2016, when it sent 1.8 million compared to the current 2.8.
However, all is not yet said and the outlook can continue to improve for Apple. With the arrival of the third generation of Apple Watch is expected the implementation of an LTE chip that will allow autonomy with respect to the iPhone, and perform independent functions like sending messages or call without the need to be connected to the mobile.
