This is how Apple Watch 3 will sweep the wearables market

Predictably during the next month of September Apple will present the Apple Watch 3 along with the iPhone 8, iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. And is that the new edition of Apple's smartwatch is in the final stages of testing before mass production . Until now, manufacturers seem to be very focused on filtering details about the iPhone 8 and the new wearable is known that against all odds, will have a similar design (we can forget the eternal rumor of a circular clock) and that will allow phone calls without the iPhone .

However, the supply chain has revealed yet another detail: it is expected that the first batch of Apple Watch 3 will reach a sales figure of 4.5 million devices in the last quarter of 2017, allowing to sell 15 million gadgets throughout 2017 For 2018 you expect nothing less or less than selling 20 million Apple Watch 3 , quite a few numbers for a terminal that a priori is so unnecessary.

In general, the feeling we have is that these figures are too optimistic. Do not be fooled, the features of the Apple Watch 3 look spectacular , but do not forget that its main competitors, Fitbit and Xiaomi, have lowered their numbers despite being considerably more affordable. For the rest, the thing does not look much better: Samsung Electronics, LG Electronics, Huawei and Motorola are still selling little. Even some manufacturers are allocating resources from the production of wearables to other more profitable departments.

The main complaints of the users point to the high prices, the low autonomy of the battery, the duplication of functionalities with respect to our smartphones and an ecosystem not too integrated as causes of the low demand. Knowing this, the road must be clear for the firm that seeks to be the leader of the sector, in this case Apple.

It is clear that his is the best wearable in the market, however the duration of his battery, the price and the few complications are factors that should improve in Cupertino already . Not only is it worth adding new functionalities, but also the existing ones have to be improved .

According to Tim Cook, Apple Watch is already the best-selling smartwatch during the second quarter of 2017, growing by 50% over the previous year. That yes, this is a claim with a trap, since for example Xiaomi or Fitbit are activity wristbands and not watches, however are direct competition that currently sell more . Its main strengths are the improvement in the habits of health and sport , as well as a perfect synchronization with the iPhone. And it is that the incorporation of the GPS and the resistance to the water were all a success, but they will need more to continue to grow to be the truth, the most sold wearable.
