Apple Watch Grows 54% in 2017, Makes Apple King of Wearables
Sales of the Apple Watch set a new record last year, according to data provided by Canalys, thanks to a growth of no less than 54 percent versus 2016.
The newly-introduced Apple Watch Series 3 was the model that powered the growth, as this model alone accounted for nearly 9 million units shipped throughout the year.
Canalys says the Series 3 was responsible for nearly half of all Apple Watch sales in 2017, though stats show that the Series 2 and older models also sold well between January and December.
The fourth quarter of the year was the one that brought the biggest sales, growing 32% year-over-year to reach 8 million. The analyst firm says this is the best quarter not only for Apple, but for any other wearable manufacturer.
