Upstart fitness company Fitbit is dominating the small, but growing wearable market.
According to a new report from Canalys, Fitbit accounted for almost 50% of wearable band shipments in the first quarter of 2014.
A wearable band is a simple motion tracker that you wear on your wrist. In total, about 2.7 million bands were shipped in the quarter. Fitbit managed to sell half of these, despite a recent lawsuit over skin rashes. The suit claimed that Fitbit did not warn customers of potential dangers from wearing the band after issuing a voluntary recall.
