Apple Watch User Base Surpasses 100 Million [Chart]

Posted August 26, 2021 at 6:37pm by iClarified
Apple's active user base for Apple Watch has surpassed 100 million, reports Counterpoint Research. According to their recently published Global Smartwatch Model Tracker, global smartwatch shipments were up 27% in Q2, compared to the same period last year.

Apple maintained its solid No. 1 position in terms of shipments, but its market share declined slightly compared to the same period last year due to intensifying competition with Chinese and Indian brands. Among the global Top 5 smartwatch OEMs, Samsung and Garmin showed a remarkable shipment growth of 43% and 62% YoY, respectively, exceeding the average market growth rate and recording higher growth rates than other top brands.

Commenting on the smartwatch market outlook, Senior Analyst Sujeong Lim said, “The smartwatch attach-rates for smartphones have been steadily rising. Apple’s ecosystem is seeing a greater attach rate as the brand continues to bake in attractive designs, health features and related services around it. Apple Watch’s user base crossed the 100-million mark for the first time during the quarter ended June, capturing the lion’s share of the smartwatch user base globally. The US continues to be the key Apple Watch market, contributing to more than half of its user base, with an attach rate of close to 30%.”


Lim added, “Looking at the success of Apple Watch, more OEMs have entered the smartwatch market with a relatively less advanced OS but comparable fitness and health-related features, and stylish designs at affordable prices targeting hundreds of millions of potential users globally. The pandemic has further pushed consumers towards being more health-conscious and features such as SPO2 and heart rate monitoring have trickled down to the sub-$100 smartwatch segment. The sub-$100 smartwatch segment grew a massive 547% annually, highlighting its mass-market reach.”
