Not long ago, data collected by Canalys revealed that the global wearable market grew by 65% in Q3 2019. During this period, various vendors managed to part with a tune of over 45 million units of smart fitness bands, activity trackers, and smartwatches across the globe.

According to this data, Xiaomi led the way with shipments of over 12 million smart wearables, accounting for an outstanding 74% year-on-year growth and a 27% market share. Its closest rivals are Apple and Huawei with market shares of 15% and 13%, respectively.

Apparently, those from the latter camp haven’t had a good start to the year 2020. Multiple reports of sleep data syncing issues with the Huawei Health App on various Huawei wearables have been flocking various platforms since the turn of the year.

For some reason, the likes of Honor Band 5 have been showing sleep data but not syncing to the Huawei Health app.
