Xiaomi has sold over 1 million MI bands in a period of three months, according to the fitness tracker's official Weibo account. The device was launched in July not long from now for USD 13, and went on sale on August 18.

For the present, the device is accessible in China just and will go on sale in Hong Kong and Taiwan on Tuesday. The organization has dispatched 103,000 in a single day, demonstrating that the smartphone maker is picking up a fan taking after for its wearable also.

This fitness band was launched by Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun, including sensors for following different health metrics and can even go about as an alarm clock. The Mi Band can likewise unlock a Xiaomi smartphone as opposed to writing clients password multiple times a day.

According to NDP group report, around 3.3 million fitness bands and action trackers were sold between April 2013 and March 2014 in the US. Out of these, Fitbit made up 67 percent of sales in that one-year period while Jawbone had a 18 percent share.

While the smartwatch business is as of now catching up with the enormous technology firms like Apple, Sony, Samsung and so forth taking a shot at their gadgets to make them more competitive, it gives the idea that fundamental fitness bands have more takers.

Motorola Introduces The Moto 360 | Its First Smartwatch Based On Google’s Android Wear

Moto360 by Motorola - A Google Company
Not long after Google affirmed Android Wear at the beginning of today, Motorola, Fossil and LG turned out with their associated announcements. Engadget reports that LG's "G Watch" (apparently for Google) will land next quarter and be combatively estimated. 

Motorola, which was only sold by Google to Lenovo, is starting a watch called Motorola 360 (see feature underneath). Of the two it has all the earmarks of being the all the more intriguing one — in light of the fact that its adjust confronted. However Motorola says "Moto 360 will be accessible in an assortment of styles globally," so there will presumably additionally be rectangles. 

Fossil is additionally an early Android Wear partner. What's distinctive with Fossil is that its a watch company getting into technology while the others are hardware organizations getting into fashion. 

It will be intriguing to hope to measure up the characteristics, quality and costs of these devices when they are uncovered in the nearing weeks and months. Outline and value will be discriminating on the grounds that apparently practicality and the Uis will be indistinguishable or about indistinguishable. 

Motorola Announces Moto 360 - Google Android WearPoor configuration quality bound Samsung's starting Galaxy Gear watch. That has now been superseded by second-era items, which have deserted Android for Samsung's exclusive Tizen. 

My supposition is that Samsung will need to re-assess and regroup again in light of the fact that the Android Wear watches (dependent upon preparatory pictures) are liable to be both more "elegant" and user-accommodating. (Interestingly, Samsung is likewise recorded as one of the Android Wear partners.) 

Fitbit, Nike Fuelband and a few other wearable fitness trackers have picked up traction around consumers. They're currently possibly undermined by Android Wear also, on the grounds that fitness following and health screening will get coordinated into these devices. I think Nike will coordinate into Android Wear rapidly. 

The dominant part of existing smartwatches have not gotten through to standard mindfulness or selection. Similarly as with Samsung the majority of those organizations, including Qualcomm, Sony and Pebble, will probably need to venture back and adjust their items to another market. 

Expecting that Google and its partners do serious consumer advertising — and the watches are moderate and generally planned — we ought to see smartwatches hit the standard in the advancing year. Also if Apple at long last starts its own "iwatch" the portion all in all will profit from more extensive consumer satisfaction and awareness.
