This is what I hate about mainstream technology websites. Loose with the truth. Killian Bell’s headline seems to indicate that Apple Watch sales are falling.
Pressure mounts on Apple Watch Series 3 as shipments fall.
Yet, Apple’s Tim Cook says Watch sales increased 50-percent YoY in the last quarter. What’s going on?
Apple Watch Series 3 is under pressure to recapture a larger share of the wearables market after Apple was overtaken by Xiaomi and Fitbit last quarter.
Ah, the marketshare meme. Remember, all these are guesstimates, but Apple does not care because Xiaomi and Fitbit sell cheap trackers, while Apple sells a truly smarter watch which happens to own the industry’s revenue and profits. Isn’t that what Apple is all about?
Apple Watch Series 1 and Series 2 are almost a year old now, so it’s understandable that demand has fallen.
Again, Apple says the opposite. Who should you believe?
