Ever since Apple launched the Apple Watch, the device has been massively popular out there. It is principally because of the health-focused features that help customers to keep fit and maintain their health in check. Well now, in keeping with an analyst, more than 100 million customers are using the Apple Watch on their wrist globally.
According to a recent report by analyst Neil Cybart, Apple recently surpassed the important milestone of 100 million active Apple Watch in the international market. As per his estimation, it took five-and-a-half years for the Apple wearable to reach this adoption milestone, and he says that “Apple is still only getting started with what is possible on the wrist.”
Now, it’s true that the Apple Watch has been one of the most popular Apple devices to be sold out there. The Cupertino giant has greatly improved the device with each iteration, and now the Apple Watch has become a life-saving device for many users all around the world.
Cybart reports that Apple offered the most units of Apple Watch after it launched the Apple Watch Series 6 with blood oxygen monitoring and the budget-friendly Apple Watch SE last year. As per his report, the company sold more than 30 million units in 2020 alone, which is more than the cumulative sales number of the device in 2015, 2016, and 2017.
The analyst, in his report, also states that though a user requires an iPhone to set up and use an Apple Watch, solely 10% of the global iPhone users own the wearable. Yeah, the corporate recently hit a major milestone, having 1billion active iPhone users across the globe. The watch userbase is measly compared to this number however it’s rising at a consistent pace. Now, this may seem to be lower than anticipated but “given the diverse technological wants and needs of those in the iPhone installed base”, it’s pretty high, as per Cybart.
Moreover, with Apple introducing Apple Watch-dedicated services and features just like the new Apple Fitness+ service, the analyst expects the installed base of Apple Watch to surpass the Mac install base by 2022.
