Apple Watch already accounts for 75 per cent of smartwatch market
The Apple Watch racked up 3 out of every 4 smartwatch sales during its first three months of availability, a new report has claimed.
Strategy Analytics (via VentureBeat) say Apple’s first wearable already accounts for 75.5 per cent of the market.
While Apple refused to offer a definitive sales number during its quarterly earnings report on Monday, the analysts offered an estimate of 4 million.
Samsung, which it places second with a 7.5m share of the market, only sold 400,000 smartwatches during the same period. So, for all of you non-mathematicians out there, that would equate to a sales ratio of around 10:1.
Strategy Analytics director Neil Mawson said: “Apple Watch launched in sixteen major countries and saw decent take-up from iPhone loyalists in the United States and elsewhere.

Apple has only officially admitted that the Apple Watch outsold the iPad in their respective first 9 weeks on sale.
The company isn’t revealing concrete sales figures for ‘competitive reasons,’ but if it does turn out to have sold 4 million in the last three months, then that wouldn’t be a bad return at all, considering the early stock shortages.
