Researcher Canalys says seven million Apple Watches have been shipped by Apple since its launch in April.
The figure falls a bit short of some Wall Street analysts' expectations. However, given Apple sold more smartwatches from April through September than everyone else combined sold in the past five quarters, and the initial component supply issue, this seems to say much more about the market and the supply chain rather than the Apple Watch itself.
Canalys also says Apple Watch shipments have been increasing, as has global availability. Their prediction: Apple will be able to continue with their momentum through the holidays.
