Apple orders more than 5 million Apple Watches ahead of its release

Apple is expecting huge sales for Apple Watch

According to the latest reports, Apple has asked its vendors in Asia to provide at least five to six million of Apple Watch ahead of its promotion in April. With all the business cases prepared for its smartwatch, Apple is expecting a massive demand of its smartwatches upon launch. Analysts believe that Apple Watch will be in high demand considering the fact that the company had the most successful quarter than any other smartphone manufacturer in the industry. That is why, an initial order of five million plus Apple Watch has been placed to its vendors in Asia.

This reveals that Apple is looking forward to a consecutive successful quarter over the launch of another phenomenal product. Considering its rival Android Wear smart watches, which have been manufactured by a number of telecom operators, have all together sold around 720,000 units during entire year 2014. According to inside sources, the gold plated Apple Watch will be the smallest portion of the complete order.

In addition, the most economical price of Apple Watch unit will cost around $349. Depending upon the sale’s performance of Q1, Apple has plans to increase production in Q2, bringing the accumulative production to 1 million units per month. Previously, the newest category offered to consumers was iPad. With this extraordinary device, Apple sold approximately 7.5 million in six month time period. Apple expects its Apple Watch to perform comparatively much better than its previous debut products in their first quarter of launch. Apple has not clearly mentioned the cost of other Apple Watch models but as mentioned earlier, the cost of Apple Watch Sport will be $349.

According to reports, the most expensive Apple Watch may cross $4000. In addition, Quanta Computer, which is a primary vendor of Apple Watch from Taiwan, has already started working on Apple Watch assembly early this year. A number of Chinese workers are working round the clock in order to meet the demand requirement set by Apple.
