Smart­watch ship­ments drop for first time, Ap­ple to blame

The Hamilton Spectator - - BUSINESS -

SAN FRAN­CISCO — For the first time ever, global ship­ments of smart­watches de­clined year over year, ac­cord­ing to a re­port from re­search firm IDC. Dur­ing the sec­ond quar­ter, smart­watch mak­ers shipped 3.5 mil­lion de­vices, a 32-per-cent drop from last year. Blame Ap­ple for the de­clines, as the leader in the mar­ket was the only smart­watch maker to re­port a year-over-year de­cline in ship­ments.
