Earlier this week, tech giant Apple finally gave us some insight on how well their wearable device is doing with consumers, and the numbers are big.
According to the report from CNET, Apple Watch sales has reached a whopping 7 million units being shipped with in two quarters. These research was gathered by Canalys, a technology market analyst firm.
As quoted from Canalys:
In Q3 Apple was the only smart watch vendor to ship more than 300,000 units.
As noted by CNET, the Apple Watch wearable device completely dominates the competition by a long shot.
And despite Apple having to deal with supply and demand issues early on, the company is on track to ship more units coming this holiday season, when shoppers will be looking to money for themselves and their loved ones.
Apple hasn’t given out its own calculation of sales, but those details should be forthcoming in the near future, one would think.
In the last earnings call earlier this summer, CEO Tim Cook remained tight-lipped about sales numbers, only stating that sales did “exceed our expectations”.
The Canalys report goes on to show that Fitbit is still the dominant force in the market for Q3, and that Xiaomi’s Mi Band surpassed 10 million cumulative shipments during the same quarter
How is it that Apple can have much success where other vendors have had a difficult time over a longer period? And how long can their dominance last?
Until Apple comes out with actual sales figures that we can completely go by, we will just have to rely on more analyst results to tell how well this wearable devices is selling.
It shouldn’t be much of a surprise to many of us, that when the real apple watch sales numbers come out, The Apple Watch will probably exceed everyone’s expectations by a long shot.
