"Apple Watch sales predictions for all nine launch countries range from 2.3 million for day one to 20 million for the launch window, when backorders get fulfilled."


Two days ago

"The Apple Watch, despite years of hype before it was even announced, appears to be flopping after all.

It wasn't a good sign when Apple announced shortly before the Watch release that they weren't going to be breaking out sales numbers. Now, a new report from third-party analysts Slice Intelligence not only show that Apple Watch sales are down 90% since launch—a big deal, since it implies early adopters aren't regaling more cautious buyers with glowing word-of-mouth—but also that Fitbit is outselling Apple in the wearables space. Apple may have already crushed small time smartwatch companies like Pebble, but the Watch has failed to disrupt the larger wearable marketplace.

"Sales of the new Apple Watch have plunged by 90% since the opening week, according to a new market-research report.

Apple AAPL, +0.43% has been selling fewer than 20,000 watches a day in the U.S. since the initial surge in April, and on some days fewer than 10,000, according to data from Palo Alto, Calif.-based Slice Intelligence.

That is a sharp decline from the week of the April 10 launch, when Apple sold about 1.5 million watches, or an average of about 200,000 a day, Slice estimates."

I got one in Los Angeles on Saturday morning. Saved me about 50 but you'll need to get yourself a different plug.

I thinks it looks fantastic but not sure how I would get on with it at work. Sure it would get damaged easily.

I can't bring myself to get a first-gen but am excited about eventually getting the watch. Having a pomodoro app (timing method) with data on my wrist is exciting, not to mention the health stuff.

Got one this Xmas. Really not sure though.
It's still in it's unopened box. Might take it back for something else.
What would you do?

I got a sort of imitation one for my birthday than you could get text messages and e-mails on.

I took it back... it seems a bridge too far to me.

I think a thread on an apple product that has 2 months between the post from K-T's to Dave's today sums it up. I think there is more current discussion on the ipod shuffle thread

I don't think BBS thread activity is any indicator of anything really.

It's growing on me.

Oh, that sounds nasty. I know the fitbit can irritate the skin but that sounds far worse

On a more serious note - what is the most useful 'thing' for you other than text, phone and email or is it just those?
