So far, the Apple Watch
is doing fine. It may not be ticking on everybody's wrists just yet, but where wearables are concerned, this thing is the clear market winner right now. It's also a huge success for Apple.
Consider this - it took Cupertino just a day to sell 1 million timepieces. It also took the Apple Watch just a day to surpass the entirety of Android Wear device sales throughout 2014. That sounds downright depressing for Google and its partners, but it's not like we saw any sad faces at this year's Google I/O keynote or anything. Android Wear has ways to go!
But still, when Tim Cook arrogantly said that the Apple Watch is the only smart-watch that matters, the man in charge was definitely onto something. Eclipsing the competition's one-year sales on day one is probably what he had in mind.
Where words fall short, pictures tell what's missing. So let this wonderful, facts-rich infographic by MobileSiri fill in the rest for you. It puts things in perspective for everyone doubting the Apple Watch, even when rightfully so.
