Apple Watch sales might hit 1M on first weekend

Analysts predict the watch will happily soar through the first week of launch

With only a few days remaining till the official debut of the much awaited Apple Watch, all eyes are set on the stage and all analysts are busy trying to figure out how the watch is going to survive in its initial days. We have yet another review from Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster who is convinced that he watch is going to soar through without any troubles in its first weekend which falls after the April 24th launch. This prediction was presented in a note to the investors and it also clearly noted that Apple will be able to sell almost 1 million smartwatches on that first weekend.

Munster’s prediction also states that Apple should be fully prepared for the pre order time because the pre orders are going to be fierce and within the first 24 hours of the pre orders opening, the company will have to deal with 300,000 preorder requests.

The concept of a smarwatch isn’t new anymore and neither is the use of these gadgets. We have already seen the different takes on the same thing from Pebble, Motorola, Samsung and LG but never before have we experienced this kind of a hype. The Apple Watch, even before it has released, has opened up the imagination of the masses and we are expecting it to be a gamechanger. Because of the name association with the biggest tech giant, we are hoping that the Apple Watch is going to open up the consumers to the idea of a highly fashionable and tech-oriented wrist band.

The Apple Watch has been around the scene ever since it was first announced by the company in September last year. The watch is going to be available in three different versions of Apple Watch Sport, Apple Watch, and the 18-karat-gold Apple Watch Edition with prices kicking off at $349 for the entry-level Apple Watch Sport model and going as high as $17,000 for the highest-end Apple Watch Edition.
