It seems that the sales figures for Apple smart watches do not loosen nor do they plan to do so, especially if we pay attention to the data displayed by Counterpoint Researchabout the sales of this smart watch from the Cupertino company last year 2021.
Of course, we have spent several years in which the Apple Watch reigns with solvency in the smart watch market, so it is not surprising that this past year 2021 was able to achieve more than half of the total revenue of the market of smartwatches.
Year after year the Apple Watch is still the dominator
It seems that the Cupertino firm hit the nail on the head with this watch since, despite launching it in the last few years, it quickly achieved a large volume of sales and today we can say that It is the most desired and sold watch in the smart watch market. Obviously where more devices are sold is in the United States, but it is closely followed by Europe, China and the rest of the world. It is true that in 2020 the Cupertino watch stopped obtaining record sales data for obvious reasons such as a global pandemic, although it is true that it regained ground in 2021.
Only during the fourth quarter more than 40 million units were shipped, they were without a doubt the best selling moment in the history of the watch itself. Sujeong Lim, one of the heads of Counterpoint Research, offered data on this news:
The good growth of the global smart watch market in 2021 is significant in itself, but it is more significant because it makes us look forward to future growth. With their ability to monitor important health parameters like blood pressure, ECG, and SPO2, these devices are becoming popular. Also, the appeal of smartwatches as standalone wearable devices will increase if more of them start to support cellular connectivity.
Of course, they are not low figures despite the fact that the Apple Watch has been quite continuous in its design and functions in recent years. Many are waiting for the arrival of an Apple Watch capable of measuring blood glucose, but this has not yet arrived. Despite all this the Apple watch is still the best seller and continues to achieve record figures.
