The  Apple Watch  reported surprising numbers. During the second quarter of the year, the Apple Watch increased its annual sales in the United States, being one of the few  wearables  that achieved it, according to the Canalys study   on the sales of mobile devices in the period from April to June.

In the second quarter, Apple managed to sell 3.2 million watches in the United States, a figure that was enough to control 37.6 percent of the market, says Canalys . Apple Watch units sold during the period increased 9 percent, the report added. 


Canalys high lights that Apple's smart watch was able to grow and distribute more units despite the Corona virus pandemic . The Apple Watch Series 5 became the best-selling watch in the United States during the period and the units sold were equal to those of its predecessor last year. 

During the same period, Samsung was one of the hardest hit companies. The Samsung Watch went from controlling 10.6 percent of the market in the United States in the second quarter of 2019, to 5 percent in the same period of 2020. In the period it sold 400,000 units, says Canalys, half of the previous period. 

Canalys predicts that manufacturers will focus from 2021 on making new  health-focused watches and  wearables , a category that will allow manufacturers to draw a larger gap between their high-end products and more basic bracelets.
