Global wearables market grew 3.1 per cent in the July-September quarter over the same period last year to 23 million units, research firm IDC said.

IDC expects the momentum for basic wearables to continue for the remainder of 2016 as the holiday season is now in full swing. However, smart wearables capable of running third party apps will likely continue to struggle in the near term, it added.

Fitbit led the market with 23 per cent share, followed by Xiaomi (16.5 per cent), Garmin (5.7 per cent), Apple (4.9 per cent) and Samsung (4.5 per cent).
