If there’s one thing that keeps growing in the bitten apple company, it’s its high turnover. This time Apple has been recognized as the biggest seller of wearables, increased by the Apple Watch Series 3 shipping figures.
According to information published in The Verge, Apple shipped 3.9 million watches, marking its strongest quarter of 2017 so far. Approximately 800,000 of the shipments were Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE capabilities.

Since its official presentation at Apple’s September keynote , expectations for the Apple Watch have been very high, particularly in recognition of its LTE connectivity feature. And although the device initially had some problems with this feature, these were corrected with a software update a few weeks after its release, making it the main driver of Apple’s sales.
Although analysts had originally predicted a stronger second half for Apple, powered by the Series 3, Apple had enough clocks produced and ready to meet demand, similar to the backlog problem faced by iPhone X fans. Of course, as we approach the holiday season, we can only hope that production can match the demand.
Behind Apple, were in second and third place, Xiaomi and Fitbit, sending 3.6 million and 3.5 million wearables, respectively.
The Apple Watch Series 3 has been all that was expected in the countries where it has arrived, although this is not yet the case in Spain. Without a doubt, the possibility of making calls and having an internet connection independently of the iPhone has been a great success.
