Apple launched its highly anticipated smartwatch today, marking the company’s first attempt at entering a new technology category since Steve Jobs’s death.
In 2014, 89 companies sold 6.8 million smartwatches across the world and the average price per watch worked out at $189.
Who are the main players in the smartwatch market? Like the smartphone market, Samsung is going to be Apple’s main competitor.
