Will Apple announce Apple Watch Order Numbers this Morning?

Apple has in the past revealed initial sales numbers of new product launches. Will Apple reveal Apple Watch pre-orders?

When Apple launched the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in September of last year, the company has announced that it has sold 10 million units on the Monday following the launch weekend. Will Apple reveal Apple Watch order numbers today?

An consumer analyst company has published a report that estimates the initial Apple Watch order numbers at 1 million in the United States alone. A million is a good number that would underline a successful launch of the Apple Watch. The Apple Watch launched in 9 markets around the world. Taking the 1 million US orders and adding sales in large Apple markets like China, France, Canada and Germany, the overall Apple Watch sales numbers could reach as much as 2.5 to 3 million.

“Apple Watch begins a new chapter in the way we relate to technology and we think our customers are going to love it,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. On launch day, he said in a Palo Alto Apple Store that he is very happy with Apple Watch orders.

Despite the mixed reviews by pundits, Apple fans still have swamped Apple with Apple Watch orders pushing the shipping dates back to June on all Apple Watch models.

The Apple Watch starts at $349 for the small case (38mm) Sport Edition. The Apple Watch Pre-order started on April 10 at 12:01am PDT in 9 countries (Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, the UK and the US) and the Apple Watch ships on April 24.

Apple Watch introduces a new design and iOS-based user interface created specifically for a smaller device. Apple Watch features the Digital Crown, a new way to scroll, zoom and navigate fluidly, without obstructing the display. The Digital Crown also serves as the Home button and a quick way to access Siri. The Retina display on Apple Watch features Force Touch, a technology that senses the difference between a tap and a press, providing a new way to access controls within Apple Watch apps.

The Apple Watch introduces the Taptic Engine and a built-in speaker that together discreetly enable an entirely new vocabulary of alerts and notifications you can both hear and feel. Apple custom-designed its own S1 SiP (System in Package) to miniaturize an entire computer architecture onto a single chip. Apple Watch also features Wi-Fi 802.11b/g and Bluetooth 4.0 to pair seamlessly with your iPhone. Besides the smart watch features the Apple Watch keeps time to within 50 milliseconds of UTC, the universal time standard when synching regularly with the iPhone.
