More than 100 million people wear an Apple Watch, a record sales in 2020

According to a new study, the Apple Watch is currently the fourth largest Apple product behind the iPhone, iPad and Mac.

Reliable analyst Neil Cybart of Above Avalon shared a report showing that there are currently over 100 million people wearing an Apple Watch.

According to the analysis, Apple passed the important milestone in December 2020 after the launch of the Apple Watch Series 6, Apple Watch SE and the Fitness + service.

Apple Watch was announced in September 2014 but was released in April 2015, which means that the Cupertino company’s smartwatch has been available on the market for almost six years now – that’s the time it took for the product to reach the 100 million milestone. of users.

As revealed by the report, the Apple Watch user base has grown significantly every year. In 2020 alone, the company sold over 30 million smartwatches , which far exceeds the sales recorded in 2015, 2016 and 2017 combined. The analysis also points out that around 10% of iPhone users already own an Apple Watch.

While the percentages might seem small, these are all impressive numbers given the potential for expansion for the future and the fact that there are more than a billion active iPhones in the world . The research also reveals that the Apple Watch is currently the fourth largest Apple product behind the iPhone, iPad and Mac, and the watch is expected to overtake the Mac by 2022.

One of the things that are driving the adoption of the Apple Watch is that people are increasingly looking for wearables as these products “make technology more personal.”

The analysis also highlights that the Apple Watch has been popular with consumers because it has an “interesting form factor” and also because it offers unique features , not to mention the Apple ecosystem that allows users to integrate the smartwatch with other products and services. of society.

Looking ahead, Neil Cybart predicts that Apple Watch sales will grow even more as Apple works on new features, such as the one added in iOS 14.5 that allows us to unlock the iPhone with the Apple Watch while wearing a faceplate.
