I wrote early this year that there is a duel between Ben and Tomi and I have promised to remind them. It was all about Apple Watch – Tomi says it is a flop, Ben says it is not.
First step arrives! Apple finally announced Apple Watch Series 2.
From Tomi’s past forecasts on Apple Watch we know he says the second edition will not sell more than 1st did. Very well, the sales of Series 2 Apple watch start from September 16th. Therefore I think we can safely compare sales between first quarters of first edition availability and first quarters of second edition availability. If either first quarter sales or first year sales are better, Tomi was wrong. So far he does not suspect he is wrong:
(The true milestone is at least a year from now. If Apple Watch Series 3 ever is announced, Tomi has agreed to admit in public he was wrong.)
