Compared to last year’s same period, Walmart’s wearable category prices are 6.4% lower than Amazon’s. Products include smart watches and fitness trackers. For outdoor and sports products, Walmart is now 1.3% lower compared to 3.5% higher a year prior.

Walmart is taking this initiative to boost their e-commerce business as well as expanding their online offerings, acquiring smaller online retailers such as, and offering two day shipping. The company has invested over $1 billion last year in order to make prices more competitive.

In the most recent quarter, online sales grew 50% that resulted in the strongest quarterly U.S. revenue growth. Walmart accounts for 3.6% of total U.S. online sales which is up from 2.8% a year ago.
