According to a report coming from CSS Insight, the global wearables market will have an estimated 232 million total market shipments in 2021, compared to 193 million in 2020. These figures include different types of smart wearables such as smartwatches, earphones, fitness bands, and more.

The report mentions that Apple comes first with a growth of 19 percent and 52 million smart wearable shipments, compared to 44 million back in 2020. However, the biggest winner from this outcome is Huawei, which sold 45 million smart wearable units in 2021, up from 32 million in 2020. This is a direct increase of 43 percent year-over-year.

“And Huawei was also a big winner. It grew its smartwatch shipments by 19%, with the launch of the Huawei Watch 3 and Watch GT 3, and its entire smart wearables base by over 40% in 2021” noted the market tracker.

Third comes Zepp with 38 million devices, a decrease of 18 percent year over year. Fourth is Fitbit with an 8 percent increase, and the fifth spot is covered by Samsung with 13 million units, up from 11 million in 2020.

According to the information, Huawei has been under US sanctions, but the company is working on its home ground, making new steps to grow its consumer-based brands.

New research this week from the Strategy Analytics Wearables (WDE) team also shows that Huawei overtook  Xiaomi to become the world’s second-largest wearables vendor in 2021.

Excluding earbuds, Huawei has around 2 times more market share worldwide than Samsung and 3 times more than Fitbit.

It is an impressive return to form for Huawei. Less than 5 years ago, its wearables ranking was close to zero. In the past year, Huawei has launched several new wearable devices in the global market including Huawei Watch 3, Watch Fit, and the Watch GT 3 series. All of these devices have gained a big success among consumers.
