Strategy Analytics is reporting that smartwatch shipments have grown 457% annually to reach 5 million units in the second quarter of 2015. Apple is said to account for 75% of those shipments.

Cliff Raskind, Director at Strategy Analytics, said, “Global smartwatch shipments grew an impressive 457 percent annually from 1.0 million units in Q2 2014 to hit a record 5.3 million in Q2 2015. It was the smartwatch industry's fastest ever growth rate. Volumes in the second quarter of 2015 were higher than for the whole of last year, when 4.6 million smartwatches shipped globally in 2014.”

Executive Director Neil Mawston, added, “We estimate Apple Watch shipped 4.0 million units and captured a dominant 75 percent smartwatch marketshare worldwide in Q2 2015. Apple Watch launched in sixteen major countries and saw decent take-up from iPhone loyalists in the United States and elsewhere. Apple Watch has clearly raised the bar for the global smartwatch industry. The ball is now in the court of rivals, like Samsung, to respond.”

"We estimate Samsung shipped 0.4 million smartwatches and captured 8 percent marketshare worldwide for second position," said Senior Analyst Rajeev Nair. "Apple and Samsung together account for 8 in 10 of all smartwatches shipped globally. However, Samsung is a long way behind Apple and it will need to launch multiple new smartwatch models and apps across dozens of countries if it wants to reduce Apple’s global smartwatch leadership in the coming months."

Umm, Apple released zero numbers on how many units they sold, this a complete out of the blue estimate....the COMBINED iPod/ Apple TV "other" divisions generated 1b in revenue.

Totally agree. Who gives a damn how much they shipped if nobody buying them. Apple watch sale dropped to 90% from its release in April.

Because almost everyone purchased them and these shipments prove it.
