Julliard, 03 Feb 2017Samsung watch is not android. Its Tizen. Duhh. Thats why I ask where the other brands. Android... moreYou're right they aren't. Tizen is very light and is the obvious choice for smartwatches.
We just have to wait and see if smartwatches go in the same direction as 3D TV's, Betamax and Laserdiscs.
I feel that this generation of smartwatches has too many compromises. It tries to do too many things and ends up with a doing too little well. I recently came across this site Kronaby.com and it promotes its watches as connected watch, not a smartwatch. It is essentially an analog watch with a few connectivity features. As such the watch runs for about 2 years without need to change battery. I think this is the way to go. Focus on some really useful features and do it well.
Poor normally go buy android. And poor cannot afford more then 1 device..
So logically smartwatches for android will never take off.
As for the excuse that rich also buy Android, they make up only the minority. And they will end up with no accessories / casing nor support if they pick an android wear.
Nothing is better than
a true value for money masterpiece.
AnonD-1825, 02 Feb 2017they included Fitbit blaze, which pretty much is smartwatchBlaze is a kind of basic smartwatch. For the amount it demands you could get a Moto 360, Gear S2 and even an Apple Watch if you shell out little extra, which are full fledged smart watches. About fitness tracking in fitbits i found more accurate data in my S6 edge's S Health App than what my Charge HR showed. Blaze is a half tracker and half smartwatch kind of.

Even Moto isn't interested in releasing 360's 2017 version so it all depends on what Google brings out in their Android Wear 2.0.

Thats why I ask where the other brands. Android Wear just disappeared? Where is the Android Wear smartwatches Google so proud of?
Julliard, 02 Feb 2017Thats it? Only Samsung and Apple? Where the other brands? What kind of report is this? Bullshit.What other brands? Android wear is as alive as Google+... Samsung is doing a tremendous job keeping up with Apple on this.
The first good Android smartwatch was the Huawei Watch.... then samsung came and released the Gear S3 which is good too. Apart from these two, everything has been 'meh'
Gear S3 is the best smartwatch so far but still doesn't justify the asking price. I use an android wear but you soon realise this thing is a hyped.
mir, 02 Feb 2017Fitbit don't have smart watches. Just fitness trackers and wearables.they included Fitbit blaze, which pretty much is smartwatch
Julliard, 02 Feb 2017Thats it? Only Samsung and Apple? Where the other brands? What kind of report is this? Bullshit.Others are combined into "others"
"Combined, Garmin, Fitbit, Huawei and all the rest barely collected 2.2 million Q4 shipments, or 26.8 percent share."
Thats it? Only Samsung and Apple? Where the other brands? What kind of report is this? Bullshit.
