Apple Watch has been popular ever since its launch. Apple Watch comes with a handful of health focused features that help users stay fit and keep their health in check. According to an analyst, as of now, it is being used by more than 100 million users on their wrist globally.
Analyst Neil Cybart’s recent report suggests Apple has recently surpassed the important milestone of a hundred million active Apple Watch in the global market. According to him, it took five and a half years for Apple Watch to reach the milestone. He said, “Apple is still only getting started with what is possible on the wrist.”
Apple has improved the Apple Watch with each and every iteration and now it has become more like a life style device. Cybart reported that Apple sold the most number of units of Apple Watch after it launched Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE last year. Apple Watch Series 6 is well accepted in the market for its blood oxygen monitoring capability and Apple Watch SE is well accepted for its aggressive price tag.
As per Cybart’s report, Apple has sold more than 30 million units in 2020 alone which is more than the cumulative sales figure from 2015 to 2017. The analyst wrote that even though, a user requires an iPhone to set up and use an Apple Watch, hardly 10% of the global iPhone users own an Apple Watch. It is worth mention that recently, Apple has hit a major milestone of 1 billion active iPhone users across the globe. It is clear that the user base of the Apple Watch is lower than the user base of the iPhone but it is growing at a constant pace.
Apple is introducing more Apple Watch dedicated features and services such as the new Apple Fitness+ service. With this, by the year 2022, Neil Cybart expects the installed base of the Apple Watch to surpass the Mac install base.
