The Apple Watch is probably one of the most popular wearables on the market today. But how popular are we talking about? According to a new report from Counterpoint Research, it has been found that to date there are approximately 100 million users around the world who wear an Apple Watch on their wrist.
The report said, “Smartwatch adherence rates for smartphones have increased steadily. The Apple ecosystem is seeing a higher retention rate as the brand continues to offer attractive designs, health features, and related services. The user base of the Apple Watch exceeded the 100 million mark for the first time in the quarter to June, conquering the lion’s share of smartwatch users worldwide. “
It also states that the US is one of Apple’s key markets and accounts for more than half of its user base. It is also said that the pandemic has fueled demand for smartwatches, not just the Apple Watch, as it has raised people’s health awareness and they are now looking for wearables that can give them insights into their health.
An Apple Watch Series 7 is expected to be launched later this year, possibly alongside the iPhone 13 in September. Rumor has it that there will be a brand new design that could potentially help drive demand even further.
