According to analysts at Canalys, shipments of smartwatches and activity trackers in the watch form factor (the source calls them basic watch) rose 25% in the second quarter to 31.7 million units.
The leader in the ranking is Apple, which, however, increased sales by only 6%, to 8.4 million units. Samsung managed to increase sales by an impressive 58%, finishing in second place, but its 2.8 million units compared to Apple’s sales are completely unimpressive.
Huawei closed the top three with an increase of 14%, to 2.6 million hours. The top five also included Noise (1.8 million, up 382%) and Garmin (1.7 million, down 11%).
Shipments of conventional fitness bracelets rose 2% to 41.7 million units. On a watch-by-watch basis, the smartwatch market grew 9.3%, while base watch shipments grew 46.6%.
The global version of Xiaomi Smart Band 7 Pro was cut in terms of functionality. The bracelet does not have NFC for contactless payments
The Xiaomi Band 7 Pro fitness bracelet was launched in China in July, and a couple of days ago, the company announced a version of the device for global markets. Outside of mainland China, the novelty is called Xiaomi Smart Band 7 Pro.
After the announcement, it became known that the global version of Xiaomi Smart Band 7 Pro was cut in terms of functionality. The Xiaomi Band 7 Pro comes with NFC as standard in China and offers support for contactless payments. However, there is no NFC in the global version of the fitness tracker.
Recall that last year Xiaomi released the Mi Smart Band 6 NFC in some global markets. In the same year, the company did not introduce Xiaomi Smart Band 7 NFC in international markets and did not include NFC in Xiaomi Smart Band 7 Pro. Xiaomi fans who use this feature will have to buy the older Mi Smart Band 6 NFC for now. Perhaps later, the company will introduce a variant of the Xiaomi Smart Band 7 Pro with NFC. But at the moment there is no information about this.
For €99, Xiaomi Smart Band 7 Pro offers a 1.64-inch rectangular AMOLED display, heart rate monitoring, blood oxygen monitoring, sleep tracking, over 110 sports modes, GNSS, over 150 watch faces, water resistance (5 ATM) and 12 -Daytime battery life.
In the footsteps of burning smartphones. Apple Watch smartwatch exploded
An Apple Watch Series 7 user reported that his watch overheated, began to smoke, and eventually exploded. Apple has confirmed that it will investigate the incident. At the same time, Apple also tried to force the user to remain silent and not share the story.
Speaking to 9to5Mac, this Apple Watch user explained that the watch was on his arm when he noticed that it was much hotter than usual. He then discovered that the back of the Apple Watch was cracked and watchOS was showing a temperature shutdown warning. The user was in his home at normal temperature.
He immediately called Apple Support to explain the situation. The manager gathered the information and said not to touch the watch until he received a response from the company. The next morning, the Apple Watch was even hotter to the touch, and the device’s display was cracked.
When a user picked up the Apple Watch to take pictures to send to Apple, it immediately started making “crackling sounds”. The clock then exploded, leaving footprints on the couch. He then contacted Apple again to report the situation. He was told that the case had received “highest priority”.
The company arranged for the delivery and said it was sending the Apple Watch to its lab for further testing. Apple also asked him to sign an agreement not to share the story, however he did not sign it.
