Analyst with Global Equities believe that the Apple Watch is a sensible investment because the device will completely pay for themselves during the service. This conclusion was made after a study of the question of the amount of savings by users of new products.
Experts conducted a survey among 250 people, asking how they became rarer to get your iPhone after purchasing the Apple Watch. According to the study, on average, the rate was reduced from 110 to 55 times a day. If the process of extracting iPhone out of your pocket takes 6 seconds, and therefore, a wearable computer saves the person to 330 seconds per day or 33.5 hours per year. If the owner of the device earns $10,5 per hour, that means for 365 days the watch will save about $350. That is how much is the most affordable model of the Apple Watch. Thus, the novelty will completely pay for itself in a year of operation.

Managing Director at Global Equities Research Trip Choudhury informed that today the company was sold for 7 million pre-orders of the Apple Watch, 2.5 million of which have already been delivered to customers. Until the end of the quarter, the company will supply around 5 million units of Apple Watch, which is two times more than analysts had expected earlier. The demand for smart watches, according to the forecast Choudhury, will only grow.
“Every week one owner Apple Watch demonstrates its clock at least 15 people. On average, two of these friends, colleagues or acquaintances will place an order for a similar device,” writes Trip Choudhury.
