    It turns out that the Apple Watch is a much bigger success than anyone would have guessed. In fact, it will end up as Apple's most successful initial product launch in the history of the company. According to the gathered data, Apple received 7 million orders in total and shipped 2.5 million watches so far. Analytics suggest that Apple will likely deliver about 5 million Apple Watches by the end of the quarter, which is twice what was predicted by numerous market research firms.

    Here are a few statistics to help put into perspective just what a blockbuster start the Apple Watch had:
    • The first iPod sale in 2001 started off with only 125,000 units in its first quarter
    • When the iPhone launched in 2007, Apple initially sold just 1.1 million units
    • In 2010, Apple launched the iPad whose initial sales reached 3.3 million during the first three months
    Of course, there are numerous factors that give the Apple Watch a big advantage over those previous products' initial launches. Also, these numbers have not been been officially confirmed by Apple. Regardless, the Apple Watch is still a massive success regardless of how you try to spin it. Here's a quote with a few final details,

    Sound off if you are a proud owner of an Apple Watch (or are at least thinking about it).

    They've built up such a reputation that they can release almost any new product and people will buy it ;)

    It just blows all the other smart watch sales figures out of the water. They went from nothing to be the market leader in just a few minutes on the first day of online sales. It'll be nice if Apple would finally release some official sales figures at the WWDC next Monday.
