    Apple Watch sales are down 55%

    The Apple Watch is soooo last year.

    A new report from market intelligence firm IDC shows Apple Watch sales have dropped 55% since the product was launched in early 2015.

    The watch debuted to a backlog of orders and 3.6 million units were shipped in its first three months on the market. But sales plummeted to just 1.6 million in the latest quarter, according to IDC. That's in spite of a price discount.

    • well they're doing quite well in mongolia!

    • why do so many salivate at the idea of Apple failing?inteliboy
    • it's mostly all the fanboys and "loyal" customers, outside of here I think they are a superb company :-)formed
    • Sales didn't plummet as much as competition. Sold more than all competition combined. Raked in enough cash to make Samsung nut its pantsmonospaced
    • But yes. Let's focus on the guy who won and ignore the guys who didn't even finish the race.monospaced
    • The watch was a "mee too!" product, everybody rushed these things, tech isn't there yet for a proper smart watchernexbcn
    • Exactly. Everyone who wanted one got one. Anyway. The chart here is both insignificant and completely unrelated and irrelevant to the watch sales pointmonospaced
    • the watch was one of Apple's biggest PR disasters - forget the figures - it wasn't the next big thing they said it would be. And most of us knew it so how didfadein11
    • they not? That is the issue, not how many sheeple bought one just because they could.fadein11
    • The fascinating thing about Apple, beyond the koolaid drinkers, is that they make SO much money and it's almost entirely the iphone.formed
    • That's why it's interesting to discuss their stock. They aren't Proctor&Gamble, or even Microsoft/Oracle/Goo... They have almost no diversification.formed
    • One bad report on the iphone and the stock will dive, another great report and it'll shoot up. I own it, but long term I am more comfortable with the othersformed
    • The watch, some believed, had the potential to add a tad bit of diversification (not all iphone, which is a dying market). But that's clearly not the case.formed
    • they need a watch only that deals with time and date and faces only.friend
    • Yep. Wise words. Yet it wasn't a 1 trick pony 10 years ago... macbooks and imacs only for me, fuck their consumer BSfadein11
    • i don want health info or fitness info or msg on my wrist. so why should i buy it. its a nice watch in appearance.friend
    • start with appearance of the watch
      time and date only

    • I am looking forward to the next ones (for all smart watches). I wouldn't buy it w/o the fitness part, though, then it's just a pretty Casio.formed
    • Personally, I prefer 'real' watches with style (sorry, unless you are 20, no smart watch will ever have style due to the disposability)formed
    • but for fitness, gps, etc., I'd get one. Microsoft's band is much more appealing, if still a generation or two off. I want small, minimal,formed

    T-minus 1 hour until my mid-year review where my will undoubtedly throw me under the bus and base 6 months of successful work on a misstep that lasted a mere week.

    3 outcomes I've been going over.

    1) I'm terminated. The company's revenue is down, there's another reorg happening today (second one in 8 months btw), perfect time for the boss whom I don't see eye to eye with to let me go.

    2) She gives me a shit review, it screws me on my merit increase and bonus, and I quit because damnit my team and I accomplished some incredible things this year.

    3) I get an at best average review and wish QBN had a thread delete button.

    Management sucks.
