The Apple Watch continues to dominate the wearable industry, with the active user base now exceeding 100 million.
The Apple Watch continues to be the most popular smartwatch on the market, and in the second quarter of 2021, Apple hit a new milestone in its user base.
According to Counterpoint Research’s Global Smartwatch Shipments Tracker , there are now more than 100 million active Apple Watch users thanks to the device’s design, health-related features and related services. It is possible that Apple has reached this milestone even before 2021, as Neil Cybart said in February that, according to his estimates, the hi-tech giant reached 100 million users in December.
In the second quarter of 2021, global smartwatch shipments increased by 27% overall, and Apple was able to hold onto the top spot. The company’s market share was 28%, down slightly from 30% in the quarter a year ago, but well above competitors like Huawei, Samsung and Garmin.
In a few weeks, the company will unveil its brand new wrist device, the Apple Watch Series 7 . The Series 7 will feature the first major redesign since 2018, with Apple adopting a flat design, larger display, and new 41mm and 45mm case sizes .
