According to Tim Cook, that is, Apple Watch Series 2 is selling like hot cakes. He's trying to correct IDC who is saying that's Apple Watch sales is in declined!
I believe Tim Cook simply because I just had lunch with a buddy, who bought a pair of Apple Watch, one for himself and another for his wife. He's pretty careful about his purchases and for him to buy two watches - that must mean something.
I secretly wish for an Apple Watch myself and I realize there are so many different prices. Unlike iPhone which is just two models there is the Apple Watch Sport which has aluminum case and the Apple Watch Stainless Steel which has stainless steel case and sapphire crystal glass. The price is almost 3x more in the Stainless Steel.
Most watch wearer know that stainless steel and sapphire crystal is the way to go. I wouldn't want a watch that gets dent easily, like an iPad, iPhone and Mac - that aluminum unibody is not able to withstand daily torture a watch goes through. I mean, you don't want to pay RM1,200 for a watch and to see it get dented in the next moment.
But what I find interesting is this article in Wired. It's a must read if you are buying an Apple Watch as far as I am concerned. It seemed Stainless Steel, just like any other Stainless Steel watch you buy from Tag Heuer or Mont Blanc, is even easier to scratch than the aluminum! That's news to me! Go check it out!
