Apple Watch Failure In Estimated Figures

By  | 

While fans of Apple consider the Apple Watch to be the most successful wearable to have ever been created it seems that not all consumers are in agreement.

The Apple Watch has been the best-seller among smartwatches but its sales are said to be down by 71% during the third quarter of this year, in comparison to the same time frame the year previously. For the quarter it was said that sales reached 1.1 million.

Its downfall may lie with the fact that cheaper fitness trackers have been made available from Xiaomi and Fitbit. This isn’t good news for Apple of course as during the third quarter of 2016 this is when the Apple Watch Series 2 was launched.

Of course many would be consumers could be waiting for the Series 2 model to come out as they are not getting hold of it until the fourth quarter, thanks to issues with stock. Some may not have seen the device as being enough of an incentive to make the upgrade. The new version only comes with the addition of waterproofing and GPS.

No doubt Apple is going to be relying on the holiday period to boost the sales of the Apple Watch. Otherwise things are not looking too good for them when it comes to wearables.
