Apple once again leads the wearable market, followed by Xiaomi and Fitbit

Report: Apple is back to being the world's top wearable maker

The only official metric that Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) disclosed about Apple Watch during last quarter's earnings release was that the smartwatch enjoyed "unit growth of over 50% for the third consecutive quarter". The U.S. tech giant shipped 3.9 million units of wearables in the third quarter of 2017.

As for the others: Fitbit took third in Q3 2017 for 20 percent, while phone makers Huawei (six percent) and Samsung (five percent) were some way behind in rounding out the top five. Xiaomi and Fitbit trailed Apple with 3.6 and 3.5 million units, mostly consisting of fitness bands. Most major markets suffered from supply shortages according to Canalys.
