This IDC study examines the market shares of major vendors in the U.S. wearables market in 2022.

"The U.S. wearables market retreated in 2022 following numerous years of steady growth," says Ramon T. Llamas, research director with IDC's Wearables team. "Part of this is attributable to the ongoing macroeconomic challenges, but it also speaks to the maturity that the wearables market has reached. More devices will be sold as replacements instead of first-time usage. This changes the game for vendors to put out best-of-breed devices and solutions instead of attracting and educating first-time users. Growth will return, albeit slower and shifting to more expensive solutions."
