Apple Watch Sales will Fall regardless of New Model Release

The Apple Watch may not turn out to be, after all, the huge success that everyone expects. At least, this is what one of the most famous and accurate Apple analysts seem to think. 

So, famous Apple analyst Ming Chi Kuo, whose predictions numerous times turn out to be true, claimed that the sales of the Apple Watch will decline this year, although Apple might be releasing a new  Smart Watch

This means that Kuo does not see a too bright future for Apple. Kuo justified his prediction by saying that the upcoming Apple Watch will not come with impressive updates. In fact, he claimed that it will just be what Apple commonly calls an "S" update, meaning that its design will remain the same and the new features will not be very impressive. 

Apple Watch second generation - smartwatch lead to sales drop
According to Kuo, the new release and the previous Apple model will lead to sales of only 7.5 million Apple Watches in 2016

This is far less than what he estimated for the first Apple Watch, in 2015. Kuo never reveals his sources for making his accurate predictions, but it is a well-known fact that he has numerous insiders at Apple, including in its supply chain in countries such as Taiwan, China or other East Asian locations. 

Kuo is known for correctly predicting a series of features of Apple's releases and he definitely managed to perfectly predict most of the features of the iPhone SE

The most interesting thing to mention at this point is that the prediction comes only a few days after a poll indicated that Apple Watch owners were interested in upgrading their devices to the next generation model, once it will be released. 

However, it has also been claimed that users would want to see more features in the Apple Watch, meaning that the famous company should make sure that it will provide them exactly what they are expecting. Furthermore, both owners and developers are waiting for Apple's second generation smartwatch to address some of the annoyances they reported with the current device. 

The prediction is not good at all for Apple, which hopes that the Apple Watch will become, alongside the iPhone, a major revenue driver. The Apple Watch is yet to confirm if it will be able to make an important presence on the market. However, Kuo's prediction could, of course, be wrong, and the Apple Watch could turn out to be a success. 

Already, a series of reports have contradicted Kuo. One of these reports, by analyst Brian White, claimed that the Apple Watch 2 will come with an important hardware redesign. The report also indicated that the smartwatch will be released in June and it will be 20 to 40% thinner. On the other hand, Kuo claimed that the device will not be launched until September or October. 

Of course, Apple has revealed nothing, so until the famous company will make the launch, nothing will be confirmed with regards to the Apple Watch 2.
