The Mekko chart below shows the number of wearable models available based on where you wear the device and the purpose it serves. Each column represents the purpose and the width is proportional to the number of models available. Each row represents the location of the body where the device is worn and the height is proportional to its share within the column. In addition, we use a data row to show the average price for the devices by purpose.
3 quick takeaways:
- Most devices are worn on the wrist
- Most devices are used for lifestyle or fitness purposes
- Entertainment devices are primarily worn on the head

The Mekko chart below shows the 10 largest worldwide opening weekend movie releases in terms of US$ revenues. Star Wars: The Force Awakens breaks records last weekend even though it hadn’t been released in China yet.
The width of each column is proportional to the total sales. The height of each segment within the column indicates the percent of sales from US and international sources. The labels were set to show both the absolute sales as well as the automatically calculated percent of sales from each source.
