Apple shipped 5.7 million smartwatches worldwide in Q2 2019, rising an above-average 50 percent from 3.8 million in Q2 2018. Apple Watch remains a long way ahead of the chasing pack and its global smartwatch marketshare has grown to 46 percent this quarter, up from 44 percent a year ago. Apple Watch has fended off strong competition from hungry rivals like Fitbit. Apple remains the clear smartwatch market leader.

There were 12.3 million smart watches shipped in total in the second quarter of 2019. Apple's closest competitor Samsung shipped 2 million smart watches, while Fitbit, the number three smart watch vendor, shipped 1.2 million smart watches.

Apple Watch shipments were significantly up year over year in the second quarter of 2019, with Apple having shipped 3.8 million smart watches in the second quarter of 2018. Apple's growth mirrors the overall growth in the smart watch market, which was up from 8.6 million units in Q2 2018.

Apple does not break down Apple Watch sales, instead including Apple Watch revenue in a Wearables, Home, and Accessories category, so Strategy Analytics' numbers are estimates.

During Apple's recently earnings call for the third fiscal quarter of 2019 (second calendar quarter), Apple CEO Tim Cook said that wearables had an "absolute blowout" quarter with growth well over 50 percent. The Apple Watch set a new June quarter revenue record and reached millions of new users during the quarter.

People were afraid Tim couldn’t deliver a hit new product in a new category, but the Apple Watch seems like a roaring success. That’s 50% YOY growth from Q2 last year.

No offense to the 7 people who own an iWatch, much like the 3 people who own the iHomePod, but is this even still a thing? I haven’t seen a single person wearing an iWatch in public. First, this thing would actually be useful if it was round. Don’t care if rectangle is more functional. Circle looks nicer. Second, no one cares about health. Americans are massively obese by choice. Stop shoving health in my face, stupid Apple. I like eating McDonald’s every day, that’s my choice, stop shaming me.
I've never seen an iWatch, but I've seen quite a lot of people wearing Apple Watches. There are many millions out there, not 7. You say it would be actually useful if it was round, but you admit rectangular is more functional? I'm not sure if you know how the words useful and functional relate to each other. "No one cares about health" sounds a lot like you projecting your opinion on everyone else - clearly, quite a lot of people care about health. I haven't heard Apple shoving health in your face or shaming you. If you feel threatened by seeing an ad somewhere, that's on you.

How is it living under a rock?

jk.

I see them everywhere I go... everywhere. It was much different when the S0 launched; I felt like I had the only one for a long time. Right around the S1 they started to become much mire prolific IMO.

Who wants to dig up the old posts from 2014/2015 where people we’re proclaiming the Watch would flop?
