The current guesstimate is that Apple has sold almost 7 million Apple Watch units since the device’s launch in late April, thereby trouncing competing smartwatch products from firms like Pebble, Samsung and Motorola.
This figure comes from analyst Daniel Matte of Canalys, who said that “After experiencing significant supply chain constraints early on, Apple managed to overcome its production struggles with the Apple Watch and is building momentum going into Q4.”
A Canalys estimate published in July suggested that the company had sold 4.2 million units in the June quarter. Apple hasn’t published any official data however, and other analysts have offered conflicting views.
Based on the company’s 10-Q filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, revenue from the device so far is estimated to be at least US$1.69 billion, meaning the actual sales figure could be higher.
Whatever the actual sales numbers may happen to be, we’ll learn them in time.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
