Wearable Wednesdays: Smartwatch Popularity by Companion App Installs

Last week Wareable did something I wish I had thought of—they very cleverly went to the Google Play Store and made a list of companion apps for smartwatches, ranked by the number of installations. They deliberately left out Apple and Samsung (Apple’s not on the Play Store anyway), and some other OEMs—LG, for example—are also missing from the list.

Wareable’s mandate was to shine a light on those smartwatch makers reluctant to divulge their sales figures. I found the results fairly enlightening; perhaps you will as well. For your reading pleasure I’ve reorganized the list a bit, and have also added Play Store links, for the sake of due diligence.
