According to Daniel Ives, an analyst at FBR & Co., the Apple Watch is on track to reach 6 million sales in the last quarter of this year. If true, this means that total sales of the wearable for 2015 will reach 12 million.
That's not bad at all, especially when you compare how the Apple Watch has been doing with the original iPad. Apple sold 3 million of those in the first 80 days, but the company has revealed that the smartwatch outsold it throughout the first nine weeks of availability.
The aforementioned analyst says his information comes from checks with Apple retail stores, which were performed last Friday. Apple itself still hasn't said anything about exactly how many watches it's sold, which is why we need to rely on such predictions made by analysts to get even the vaguest idea of how well the wearable is doing.
While not being anywhere near as important to Apple as the iPhone, the smartwatch is dominating the nascent wearable market, and it's also a bet for the future, when such devices will hopefully become even more useful - and get better battery life.
"Dumb Americans" Oh dear
