Apple iWatch retail price expected at $300, claims analyst
The Apple iWatch is coming; this becomes more and more of a certainty with each report. When exactly will the world see it? October of this year is what one of the most recent reports is claiming, though things are not certain at the moment, neither regarding a launch date, nor the sole existence/launch of the wearable.
However, if Apple decided to announce the iWatch, UBS (investment firm) believes that the company will likely sell 21 million units in the fiscal 2015, with 36 million units in the year after that. These are all, of course, unverified bits if information, reports, and rumors. UBS also believes that the iWatch will retail for $300, and expects “iWatch sales to roughly track iPad unit sales — similar penetration rates would mean higher sales. iWatch might do better because the customer base is larger than when iPad launched and the ASP might be less. On the other hand, iWatch is the first product to be worn, which might not appeal to all users”, said analyst Steven Milunovich.
