A report published by IDC regarding the global wearable technology market sheds some light on a very interesting arms race that’s currently going on.

The wearables market grew 223% over the course of the previous year.

18.1 million wearables were moved in the 2Q 2015, compared with 5.6 million in the same quarter the previous year. Of those, 4.4 million devices were Fitbit, 3.6 million devices were Apple Watches, and 3.1 million were Xiaomi wearables (if IDC’s calculations are accurate).
