Shipments of wearable devices continued to improve in the second quarter of 2017, showing a 10.3 percent improvement over the same period last year, according to a new report from International Data Corp. (IDC). The quarter saw 26.3 million shipments and was also the first period in which basic wearables — those that do not run third-party apps — saw a decline with negative 0.9 percent growth year over year. Smartwatches, on the other hand, saw strong growth at 60.9 percent. “The transition towards more intelligent and feature-filled wearables is in full swing,” said Jitesh Ubrani senior research analyst for IDC Mobile Device Trackers, in a prepared statement.
