The wearables market is booming right now with all sorts of new devices hitting the market. Of all the smartwatches and fitness bands on the market, the best selling devices on the market come from Fitbit according to the latest market statistics.

About 2.7 million devices shipped globally in Q1 2014 according to statistics from Canalys released this week. Of those 2.7 million devices, about 50% of them were Fitbit devices. The major recall on the Fitbit Force apparently had little effect on sales.

 

Another of the strong contenders in the market was Jawbone. One of the wearables that saw its market share decline significantly was the Nike FuelBand. That device saw its share of the market decline by 10% during Q1. In the smartband segment, Pebble took the top spot with 35% of the market. Samsung saw its share of the market slip to 23%.
