Nice strategy from Apple!!! Plant some ridiculous stories in the press to make it look like the apple watch has been a raving success.
Naturally, this will motivate the gullible apple fanboys to go and pick up their own smartwatch.
7 million apple watches ????? And apple kept quiet about it ?????
Even for mainstream iphones which everyone expects will ship millions of units, tim cook was quick to brag over sales figures of the iphone 6s few days after release.
But the apple watch, a relatively new device, purportedly ships 7 million units and tim cook says NOTHING.
This cant be true can it? lol It's so overpriced, and far from the best looking smartwatch in the market.. Lol but since it's an Apple device i guess they sell like hot cakes huh?

These are shipped figures.
Sales are probably under 1 million and Apple had to stuff 40+ million of them in warehouses and 6 million is rotting on retail shelves.
Based on the iPhone 1/2G (which the current Apple Watch looks like a shrunk version of - I have the former on my desk right here in working order!0, I'm betting that the next Apple Watch will be a major advance, more so than the 'jump' from the iPhone 1/2G to the iPhone 3G.
1. Thinner (as per the ground breaking iPod Nano - amazing at the time.)
2. Less clunky
3. 50% better battery life
4. Improved UX. IE, press the long button to get most recent apps/contacts/actions, NOT just contacts!
5. Built in GPS
6. Camera option model for Facetime
7. A few other 'one last thing' features
Anonymous, 06 Nov 2015Shipped not sold plus most of these will be returned.Shipped is already sold.But you're partially right Roughly 10% of that total shipped is used a replacment for defects and someof those would end up being returned or just garbage.
Last month reports they were 2.5 to 3.0 million. So next month they will be 15m. Cool
My 42mm Apple watch sport/IP6S combo is killer!! Luv them both..Dont like Apple dont buy it,cant afford Apple,get a better job..
What Apple says? It would be very easy for them to count isn't it instead we all speculate through some reports ?
If this was true tim would have already gone on stage and bragged about it.
1. There is simply not enough money in Apple's "other product" category earnings in the last two months for 7 million watches.
2. If Apple sold even close to that number they wouldn't be mum after all this time.
And now Joinius and Grey1213 are going to troll lol where are the doubters now? Can't wait for official figures to shut the manbabies up indefinitely! Haha
