Apple Watch Sales Dropped 90%

According to new data from Slice Intelligence, the Apple Watch sales dropped dramatically since launch.

Slice Intelligence has released via MarketWatch new sales data of the Apple Watch and sales dropped steeper than expected. Apple Watch sales dropped 90% since launch. Daily volumes at launch have been an estimated 200,000 in the United States. Now Apple is selling fewer than 20,000 and some days even less than 10,000 Apple Watches.

Slice Intelligence bases their data on analyzing email receipts sent to consumers.

With daily sales numbers that slow, why is there still a supply constraint? The online Apple Store ships Apple Watches with 5 to 7 days delivery timeframes. An iPad Air 2 ships for instance right away.

Apple has so far avoided to release sales number for the Apple Watch. It is not clear if Apple will reveal the sales numbers at the next quarterly earnings call. It is save to say though that Apple will have sold more smartwatches than any other brand. Apple's Q3 Earnings call is on Tuesday, July 21.

An earlier Slice Intelligence report says that FitBit sells more wearables on a daily basis now than Apple. The comparison is though not that fair as FitBit's bands are lower priced and not full smartwatches.

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.
The Apple Watch starts at $349 for the small case (38mm) Sport Edition. The Apple Watch Pre-order started on April 10 in 9 countries (Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, the UK and the US) and the Apple Watch started to ship on April 24. Current Apple Store shipping time frames for the Apple Watch is one week.
