Fresh report pegs Samsung as number one smartwatch vendor

The Apple Watch may be the most talked about kit of wearable tech at the moment, but there’s some good news for Apple’s prime competitor as well i.e., Samsung. It turns out that Samsung hasn’t being doing too bad on the smartwatch market too. According to analyst firm Statista, Samsung is in fact the number one smartwatch vendor.

The company’s Gear lineup of smartwatches propel it to the number one spot, with a massive 17.65% market share. The report also goes on to state that Samsung sold a cumulative total of 1.2 million smartwatches in the year 2014, followed by a not-so-close second Pebble with 700,000 shipments. Samsung’s smartwatches are generally priced in the mid-segment of the price bracket, thus giving the company a good chance to showcase its prowess to the widest audience.

Just a thought on journalism on SamMobile: If you had 5 minutes, you’d find that the original material is the 9th article in three years to come from a three-dudes outfit called “the smartwatch group”. These dudes still don’t indicate how they are the only people in the industry to have these numbers.

– Samsung’s market share is 23%, not “a massive 17.65%”.
– Samsung DROPPED from 34% to 23% in one year. Sales increased, but everybody else’s increased more.

If you still haven’t got 5 minutes to do research before hitting “post”, here’s the real article: http://www.smartwatchgroup.com/top-10-smartwatch-companies-sales-2014/

So Motorola sold zero Moto 360?

This report is complete bull&@#$, as is this article that is just copying it unquestioningly.

Sorry, Lenovo = Motorola. I find the figures hard to believe, though. Nearly all tech sites got Moto 360 as the best-selling Android smartwatch.
