Smartwatches May not be a big threat after all

Postby koimaster » May 12th 2016, 7:22pm

If you follow news about watches, and smartwatches, there's an excellent chance you've seen a widely breaking story today about how, for the first time in history, the sales of smartwatches have surpassed sales of Swiss-made watches. It's easy to read all sorts of doom and gloom into this, but let's take a look at what the story really does, and doesn't, mean.

The story, as reported here, here, and here, is based on a newly released report from the firm Strategy Analytics, with Barron's reporting: "Strategy Analytics estimates all smartwatch sales globally totaled 8.1 million units in the three months ended in December, versus 7.9 million units for the Swiss watch business."

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
