Bad inquiry for Apple Watch

Although that Apple Watch would need to be charged at least once a day, the expectations from Cupertino were extremely high. Computer giant planed to sell on first day six million watches and run out of them in few days. Recent analysis of sales of the Apple Watch showed that the demand for it is much smaller than expected.

Analytical houses around the world revealed that the Apple has managed to sell only 2.5 million smartwatches, half of them were sold the first day. Daily Apple has managed to sell only around 30 thousand smartwatches around the world, which of course isn't what they wanted. In one year, they managed to sell a total of between 11 and 15 million smartwatches, though Apple expected to sell much more. If we take for example iPhone, just in one quarter they managed to sell 60 million of them, which is far above of the amount of selling their smartwatches.

At Apple, as expected, the news about poor sales of smartwatches have not yet commented. Nevertheless, analysts estimate that Apple due to lower sales than expected sooner or later be forced to make a new and improved version of the Watch.
