The shipments for Apple Watch have become slow lately, but the fact that Apple Watch Series 3 is just around the corner has increased the shipments. The device is said to boost the number of shipments for the company, and so it would again have a strong grip.
As per sources, Apple is probably going to deliver 15 million Apple Watches for the year. That figure could ascend much higher in 2018.
The smartwatch market is still in its earliest stages, and for most buyers, wearable gadgets aren’t a need. Demand for wearable tech is still needed to go up to the expected level.
For most smartwatch manufacturers, weak battery life, high price tags, and the fact that most devices simply replicate smartphone functionality has caused a decline in demand lately. Xiaomi and Fitbit have both seen sales decline for their fitness bands, while shipments from Samsung, LG, Huawei, and Motorola stay poor.
A few, as ASUS, have dropped out of the smartwatch market altogether due to failure in building any kind of business.
Luckily for Apple, the same can’t be said in regards to Apple Watch. In spite of the fact that there has been a slight drop in demand as its Series 1 and Series 2 gadgets close to their first birthday celebration, the lineup has been altogether more effective than any of its ancestors.
“Apple’s overall smartwatch shipments are expected to rise to 4.5 million units in the fourth quarter and hit 15 million for the whole year 2017,” reports DigiTimes, citing sources in Apple’s upstream supply chain. “The sources expect the volume to rise to 20 million units in 2018.”
There are high trusts in Apple Watch Series 3. In spite of the fact that we’re not anticipating any significant changes, early rumours have proposed that it will have a 4G LTE network, enabling us to utilize applications and remain associated without being attached to our iPhones over Bluetooth.
