    Default Apple Watch Pre-Orders Hit Almost 1 Million

    One day and the watch almost hit 1 Million pre-orders...
    I'm telling you that if apple releases a Stone.. it will sell by the millions just the same...

    3 million smart watches were sold in 2013, about 4 Million sold in 2014.. apple sells almost 1 million in one day... lol

    Almost one million people ordered an Apple Watch on the first day it was available, according to an estimate by a research firm, showing strong consumer demand for an Apple product that debuted to mixed reviews.

    Slice Intelligence, citing an analysis of e-receipt data from 9,080 online shoppers, said that about 957,000 people in the U.S. pre-ordered an Apple Watch on Friday, with each buyer purchasing an average of 1.3 watches and spending an average of $503.83 on each one.

    More than 60% of consumers bought the cheapest iteration of the Apple Watch, the Sport model.

    Did we already have a thread for this?

    I expect most Apple users to buy one. Nothing new here. 1 million is disappointing if i was is Apple's shoe.

    EDIT: This is just an estimate.... Hsst

    Just saying, I am sure Apple is disappointed with 1 million.

    How many iPhones they sell every year?
    This is compatible with iPhone 5 and up and only 1 million was preordered?

    Hmm maybe they will sell lots more within the year, but when compared to iPhone sales I cant say this is good in my opinion.

    You can't compare a new product vs and existing established product..

    You'd have to compare the Watch vs when the iPhone or iPad was just launched.. If I remember Apple sold about 300,000 iPads on launch in 2010 and about 270,000 iPhone sold in 2007...

    So to sell almost 1 million (estimate) watches is commendable..

    Not in my opinion... Just like smartphones were out and established before iphones came out, smart watches have been out for 3 years now.
    Nothing new about them.

    Not even 1% of iphone users preordered? Hmmm ofcourse this might change later.

    Maybe I am disappointed because I was hoping Apple would make smart watches more respected. Cause their are lots of people who talk crap about smart watches.

    Nope Apple is in a league of their own with electronics. they have a market to themselves while others share the market.

    So no.

    You know I dont have to agree with you right lol? I am stating my view on this. You are overjoyed while I am not impressed.

    Edit: TO add, Apple released this when everyone knows what a smart watch is. Everyone else took a chance.

    Not overjoyed..... But always good to see a Company turn great profits.. As a Multiple business owner It motivates me to do same..

    Most people Hate Apple.. I respect their Hustle..
    Most people Hate Digicel .. I respect their Hustle..

    You admitting that Apple is in league of their own? wow never saw that coming...
    Even so, when you release a product that already exists on the market comparisons will be made with said existing product..

    You yourself said phones already existed before the iPhone lol

    One thing I overlooked was that this is just in USA. Should be much more when available in other countries.
