Apple Watch at the Top of the World
The Apple Watch is on track in the global smart watch field: as with most of its devices, it has taken over the lead.
When are we going to learn that there is just no way you can say “no” to Apple? Well, we had better learn it very soon, because it seems like the company is unstoppable. Whether it is about iPhones, iPods or other devices for online gambling, Apple quickly becomes top of its class. The story is no different when it comes to the Apple Watch, either. But when it boils down to actual figures, however, the effect really is shocking.
According to CNet, Apple has not (yet) gone public about how many Apple Watches it has sold in this last quarter. However, as the firm Strategy Analytics predicts, approximately 4 million watches were sold in the last coupe of months. This means that the Apple Watch has taken over the lead in the smart watch market by possessing a 75% share in it.
Sales estimates for the Apple Watch ranged from 2.85 million to 5.7 million
CNet reported that analysts asked by Fortune called in sales figures that ranged from almost 3 million to a little less than 6 million units. So, the average of 4 million units sold seems fair; there are a lot of iPhone gaming fans who swear by Apple products and who would definitely buy the Apple Watch over anything else. Some, however, say that the company didn’t disclose its actual sales numbers in its fiscal report, because they didn’t sell as many watches as they expected to.
To this, all we can do is quote Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook: “sales of the Watch did exceed my expectations, despite supply trailing demand at the end of the quarter.” He also revealed that the Apple Watch saw its best sales figures in June. CNet states, however, that Slice Intelligence’s poll showed a colossal decrease in Apple Watch sales: the sales per day dropped by 90% from the first days when it was released to the beginning of July. All we have to do now, is wait for Apple to release the actual numbers.
