When Apple launched its Watch back in April, the world stood still waiting to see just how huge the sales of Apple's first wearable would be. Well, while they might have started off with around 1.5 million Watch units sold, at an average of around 200,000 per day, those numbers have dropped, considerably.




According to Slice, Apple Watch sales have completely bottomed out to less than 10,000 per day, reports MarketWatch. More than two-thirds of the Apple Watch units have been the cheaper "Sport" version of Apple Watch, which has a starting price of $349. The more advanced models start at $549, but the sales numbers on those are much lower. In the United States, just 2,000 of the $10,000+ "Gold Edition" Watch have been sold.


What does this mean for the Watch? Well, it means that Apple didn't quite revolutionize the smartwatch market like it thought it would, and that Apple fans have swooped in, either purchased or looked at the Watch and decided against it. Either way, it doesn't bode well for the future of Apple Watch.
