As indicated by IDC, just 2.7 million smartwatches were dispatched in Q3 this year, which is not a great number considering the cutting edge wearables should be second to cell phones.

Taking a gander at form wearable point of view, everybody wearing a similar gadget weaken the estimation of mold proclamation. Apple right now driving the market of shrewd watches yet neglect to present new outline encourage disillusioned forthcoming purchasers," Naiya said in an email explanation to IBTimes India.

While the worldwide pattern for smartwatch deals did not appear to be good, we could freely check their accomplishment in the Indian market, which is the objective nation for most tech monster all over the world.
Flipkart, one of the biggest e-trade stages in India, saw an inverse pattern in the smartwatch deals over the previous year. "Our smartwatch deals developed by 312% (on a little base), JAS 2016 over JAS 2015," the organization said in an email explanation.
ShopClues AVP Nitin Agarwal told IBTimes India that the offers of smartwatches on its stage expanded 400 percent amid April-September 2016 period. The e-business stage additionally uncovered the main three offering models were U8, which is the least expensive model in the market; DZ09 smartwatch, another spending offering with SIM card bolster; lastly GT08, which has a premium outline yet has a minimal effort.
There is a set example here which demonstrates purchasers are not willing to spend enormous cash on smartwatches as they do on cell phones.
