Apple Watch US sales drop 90% since opening week - report

Thursday 9 July 2015 | 08:54 CET | News
Apple Watch US sales have plummeted by 90 percent since the opening week. The company is selling fewer than 20,000 watches a day, and sometimes fewer than 10,000, reports Market Watch, citing a report from market researcher Slice Intelligence. In the first week in April, Apple sold around 1.5 million watches, or around 200,000 a day on average, Slice estimates, based on electronic receipts sent to email addresses following purchases. Two-thirds of the watches have been the lower-margin sport version, starting at USD 349, the remainder being higher-margin advanced models starting at USD 549.
