Piper Jaffray's analyst covering Apple is Gene Munster and if you are a loyal PhoneArena reader, you've seen his name on the site quite often. Mr. Munster (we wouldn't call him Gene unless he specifically said it was ok) has now turned his attention to Apple's smartwatch expected next year' ever since it became known that Apple was working on a connected timepiece, the name iWatch was attached to the project and has seemed to stick...

iDo, iFollowers make up about 40 million individuals of the 700mllion iOS devices (just reported recently) out there. iWrecken the average iFollower has about 4 total iPads, 5 iPhones, 5 iPods, 2 appletvs and 1 iWatch coming up. Apple's whole market share is the same iFollowers that buy iDevice after iDevice, year after year lol.
So ya, they will easily sell 5 million iWatches to their kind, no FLiPPiN doubt!i!

number to high. think those analyst are over exaggerated with numbers. plus the thing haven't even been out. only smart watches been out is SONY SMART WATCH 1 now 2. now SAMSUNG. Lg needs to remake their first SMART WATCH phone few years ago and redesign it.

Yea, I think this guy is desperate to get Apple's stock back to where he bought it. These fackin smartwatches seem so uninspired and reactionary. It seems to be just a money making tactic, not something that someone actually thought would be great. And it only started when rumors of Apple making a smart watch started. Can't wait until this garbage flops and some real innovation happens somewhere.

If they can integrate facetime in the watch, that would be nice. But I'll stick with my G.gear and note3 combo.

I wish my job involved analytics and guesstimations, where the margin of error was millions or tens of millions. What an easy gig.

Meh, not really seeing the point in these watches yet. A lovely baume and mercier watch is still going to sit on my wrist :D

Nice! Which model Baume & Mercier? I really dig the company polices they exhibit; as an animal lover I really appreciate the financial support they give toward ending animal abuse.
Just snagged a 1977 Rolex Oysterquartz with plum face off the vintage matket .
There's the point...what watch geek is gonna drop $350 on this ugly crap? That is assuming it works of course, and that it creates some type of new "must have" app. Anyone want to try and read texts off their wrist in bright sunlight off a postage stamp?

How can you expect something to sell that does not exist?!!! Gimme a break!

Apple can't even get iOS7 right, let alone build a new iwatch that will only cost them $24 to build from scratch.

Expect 5 to 10 million iWatches to be ignored as soon as Google Glass will be released! ;)
