Whilst critics have sought to portray Apple Watch as a disappointing failure since launch, however, the truth is that the Apple Watch is in fact the world’s leading intelligent wearable device in any category, worldwide. Tim Cook also noted that the newly launched Apple Watch Series 3 models helped Apple post its best quarter of watch sales ever, with unit sales doubling over last year’s sales of Series 2 models. The Apple Watch has also consistently reached 50 percent growth in both units and revenue for the fourth consecutive quarter, highlighting a solid base of demand for the company’s highly personal, ultra mobile and super integrated Wearables. Apple doesn’t release the actual number of watches Apple was actually selling each quarter.
