Apple has the giant market in smart watch industry and Android wear not doing well at all. In Q1 2017 Apple watch has 57 percent market share followed by Samsung’s Tizen OS (19%) and Android Wear only 18% with third place.

As per Arstechnica study, Android Wear’s biggest issue is not it’s software but the smartwatch chips.

Both Apple and Samsung are building faster, cooler and smaller chips which make smartphone’s performance really quick.
