Market research firm Canalys today released its Q3 report on wearable wristbands.
According to the report,Huawei took first place in the Chinese mainland market, followed by Xiaomi in second place.
In terms of specific data, the top five market shares of wearable wristband devices in the Q3 of 2022 in mainland China are as follows:Huawei (24 percent), Xiaomi (22 percent), Little Genius (10 percent), Apple (9 percent) and OPPO (4 percent).
However, in terms of growth rate, Huawei had a significant decline, with a year-on-year growth rate of 27%; Xiaomi up 6 per cent; Apple was the biggest, surging 53 percent thanks to blockbuster new products during the quarter.
In the third quarter of this year, Huawei also launched new watches, including the Huawei Watch Fit 2 (starting from 899 yuan) and the Huawei WATCH 3 Pro New (2,999 yuan). The former has a less mainstream style, while the latter is more expensive and has not attracted much response.
Early next month, Huawei will introduce a new species of Huawei Watch Buds, which are designed with a flip lid and contain a pair of real wireless headphones, which is expected to attract a wave of attention.
Canalys also released a report on global wearable wristband devices. Q3 shipments in 2022 reached 49 million units, up 3.4% year on year, as the watch category continued to grow and the bracelet category continued to decline.
In terms of ranking, the top five are Apple (20%), Samsung (10%), Xiaomi (9%), Noise (7%) and Huawei (7%).
