Samsung's dominance isn't merely limited to the smartphone market Seven out of 10 smartWATCHES sold globally during the first quarter this year were made by the Korean firm

US-based market research firm Strategy Analytics says Samsung Electronics shipped out some 500-thousand smartwatches in the first three months this year, good for more than 71 percent of the global market That's a big jump from the 52 percent recorded last year, and also far ahead of Samsung's two closest competitors in the market, Sony and Pebble, which both had 11 percent of the market in the first quarter

Strategy Analytics said the only possible threat to Samsung's dominance is Apple's "iWatch," which is set to hit the market later this year
