Samsung is now the top smartwatch seller in India, says latest IDC report


There has been a lot of work in the smartwatch space lately, with the latest Galaxy Watch 4 series devices coming from Samsung. However, the company’s previous watch models performed very well in India, making Samsung the best-selling smartwatch brand in India in the second quarter of 2021.

Based on the report, Samsung has seen a massive growth of 860 per cent every year, making it the top smartwatch seller in India. This achievement is made possible by the devices of the last-gen Galaxy Watch Active 2 and Galaxy Watch 3 series. Keep in mind that these watches were built based on Samsung’s old Tizen platform, not the new Wear OS platform that was developed jointly with Google.

The IDC report noted that Samsung ended the June quarter with a 41.2 percent volume market share. The Galaxy Watch 3 and Watch Active 2 still continue to sell in India.

However, the new Galaxy Watch 4 series is where all the attention is at the moment. Watch 4 and Watch 4 Active are Samsung’s latest efforts, along with Google’s new Ware OS3 platform. The Watch 4 is equipped with Samsung’s Bioactive Sensor which uses a chip to run three powerful health sensors – Optical Heart Rate, Electrical Heart and Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis. It allows clients to monitor their blood pressure, detect an AFib irregular heartbeat, measure their blood oxygen levels and calculate their body composition.

The standard Galaxy Watch 4 is coming in two variants for both LTE and BT versions. The BT Spec Watch 4 40mm is priced at Rs 23,999 and the 44mm version is priced at Rs 26,999. The 40mm version is priced at Rs 28,999 in LTE and the 44mm version will get you back to Rs 31,999.

The Galaxy Watch 4 Classic is priced at Rs 31,999 for the 42mm version of the BT-only spec and Rs 34,999 for the same 46mm version. The 42mm LTE version is priced at Rs 36,999 and the 46mm variant will get you back to Rs 39,999.

The pre-order of this watch is already over.
