Apple’s Early-Generation Smartwatch Rules A Market Where The iPhone Is Struggling

Apple may be struggling to take the iPhone’s market share in India beyond just 2%, but there’s one segment where it is winning: smartwatches.

In the second quarter of 2018, Apple Watches made up 35% of the total smartwatches sold in India, according to market tracker Counterpoint Research. The number of Apple smartwatches sold in India rose 16% year-on-year from the same period last year, Counterpoint said.

 San Francisco-based Fitbit was a distant second, though it, too, doubled its quarterly market share, followed by South Korea’s Samsung.
