Wearable device is a smart wearable gadget that is not just an accessory but also comes with a computer system that can be connected to the Internet as well as synced with computers and smartphones. At present, another outstanding smart wearable device apart from smartwatch that comes to attention is Google Glass glasses, which was fully unveiled on June 27, 2012 at Google I/O. When start wearing these glasses, you will firstly have a normal visibility. But then there will be a screen showing various information similar to the Layar app, which uses a technology called Augmented Reality. It displays information of what you see such as where you are in the map, what the weather is like, can inform whether you are on the right path, and can talk to your friends via Hangout.
In addition, it also displays other information as well as can be instructed to perform various functions such as making phone calls, sending messages, and taking photos or videos. Currently the wearable device market in India has grown so much that Xiaomi, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer, has a market share of 46% and is now a leader in India. But when comparing the market share around the world, it still cannot overtake Apple as the first place. The report of the global wearable device market share in the second quarter (Q2 2018) of IDC stated that Apple still holds the leading position.
IDC revealed that Apple has sold 4.7 million smart wearable devices, 38.4% increase compared to the same period last year. Following by Xiaomi who has sold 4.2 million wearable devices, 19.8% up compared to the same period of the previous year (2018 data). While the third place is Fitbit who has sold 2.7 million pieces but the figure dropped by 21.7% compared to the same period last year. The fourth is Huawei whose sales has increased by 118% over the same period last year and is likely to overtake Fitbit within this year. The fifth rank is Garmin that surpassed Samsung to be among the top 5 leaders in the second quarter of 2018. IDC found that every brand of wearable devices had a combined sales of approximately 27.9 million, 5.5% increase compared to the same period last year. However, the wearable device business in a saturated market like North America, Japan, and Western Europe, sales have declined considerably because these markets have fully grown since last year and there is still not enough new innovation to stimulate consumers this year.
However, in emerging markets such as Central Europe, Eastern Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific (excluding Japan), and Latin America, wearable devices grew by 14% compared to the same period last year. Therefore, many brands have their marketing plans to launch new products to meet the market needs. Power Buy Online also responds to our consumers as well by importing various types of products as much as possible, selecting products according to international standards which comes at a very special price. Currently we have imported many types and many brands of wearable devices including Garmin, Apple, Fitbit, etc. These brands come with various models including a ZeTime Premium smartwatch, the world's first hybrid watch that combines analog and smartwatch modes.

An advanced technology has been used through a high-resolution TFT color screen. An innovative ZeTime will offer multi-layered technologies that include TFT color screen, analog, touch panel, and an ultra durable sapphire glass.
