Expectations for the Apple Watch have gone from modest to hugely optimistic, but one consensus seems to hold true, the device will sell well. In fact, no matter which research company you source, they all think the Apple Watch will become a defining wearable and the most successful so far too. Strategy Analytics has now added its own predictions and says that the Apple Watch will shift 15 million units through 2015.
Apple will quickly become the world's number one smartwatch vendor with 55% global market share this year.Considering some analysts are predicting sales of 30 million or more, Strategy Analytics is taking the conservative route, but even so 15 million would still be a huge number considering the overall wearable market. Indeed, most forecasters think the consumer base is so enamoured with Apple that it will flock to the Apple Watch even though it is hardly the best looking smartwatch on the market.
Apple's famous brand, loyal fan base, deep retail presence and extensive apps ecosystem will ensure healthy uptake for its watch.
