Preorders Hit 1 Million
Apple made the Apple Watch available for preorder on April 10, 2015. About one million people took advantage of the offer, analysts projected. Slice Intelligence estimated about 957,000 customers in the United States ordered the Watch, which was also available to customers in China, Australia, Canada, Japan, Hong Kong, France, Germany, and the UK.
Most models sold out for the April 24 delivery date, leaving many customers waiting until June or July 2015 to receive their Apple Watch. The majority of customers (62%) chose the Apple Watch Sport, which is the least expensive version. Data indicates 40% chose the space gray aluminum case, 34% picked stainless steel, 23% selected silver aluminum, and 3% chose the space black steel model.
