Apple Watch sales up 12% to 6 mln in record Q4 figures

Wednesday 8 February 2017 | 10:26 CET | News
Apple accounted for nearly 80 percent of total smartwatch revenues in the fourth quarter of 2016, shipping 6 million Apple Watches in a new quarterly record for the company. The latest update from Canalys reveals that over 9 million smartwatches were sold in the last three months, with Apple increasing sales 12 percent year on year despite being significantly handicapped by supply constraints. The Apple Watch generated more than USD 2.6 billion in revenue for Apple in Q4, thanks in part to the Series 1's lower entry price and the company's more focused fitness messaging.
