Almost No One Is Buying Android Wear Watches

Rolfe Winkler, writing for the WSJ’s Digits:

It’s been a slow start for Google’s smartwatches. Research firm Canalys says just 720,000 smartwatches powered by Android Wear, Google’s operating system for wearable devices, shipped in the last six months of 2014.


By comparison, Apple sold roughly 114 million iPhones over the same period. That means Apple sold almost as many iPhones each day as makers of Android smartwaches sold over the six months.

Interesting for perspective, but not exactly a fair comparison. Let’s see how the Apple Watch does.
